15 hour drive

The first few hours of the drive were in complete darkness, so there was no possibility of knitting then. And the last couple hours were also in darkness, so same problem. But that still left almost 10 hours to knit. What to knit? Well, I've had Pomatomus socks in my queue for months. And I have these two skeins of Lorna's Laces handpainted sock yarn. Seemed like a plan. And let me tell you, the pictures do not do this pattern justice. It's fantastic! And so is the yarn. I knit most of the leg of the first sock and was just about to start the heel flap, but it was time to put my knitting aside. Because when driving in New Brunswick, it's a good idea to keep a sharp eye out to see if any moose or deer plan to bolt in front of your car ... something my brother learned the hard way.

The hard way is an understatement!
