Stitch Along Wednesday

Good morning my peeps!!!  It is my last week of summer vacation and I am booked this week!  Today I'll be taking a couple nephews shopping for their belated birthday gifts....should be fun...

I have three projects that have been front and center this week...first up, the Dork socks...almost done with sock 1..these socks took a backseat for awhile...

and then I have two hats...I joined a Sockhead KAL....(I always pronounce this sockHEED in my head)...if you want to join, it's here, until Sept 30...you do have to use an indie dyed yarn...that's the only requirement (or self dyed is good)

My yarn is Dizzy Color, one of the Buffy inspired ones from Patrol 1....

And..I'm doing a test knit...
This is a MadColor yarn from a Harry Potter club...

They don't look much different, as it's a lot of K2, P2 ribbing for both...I'm onto the pattern in the test knit, but have 2 more soul draining inches of ribbing on the Sockhead....

So two questions today...what's the best thing you've ever done on vacation?  And/or ..what was a soul draining project for you?

Oh and since there have not been reliable links up on Friday, I'm just going to start doing a Friday linkup...I don't always have an FO, but I'll post the link anyway....AND Ikneadtoknit also has linkups on Wednesdays and Fridays, so check her out...as always, please link back, so people can fins us...thanks!

I have a link to your link up in my sidebar, so hopefully it'll send people your way. I also have a link up, if you're interested.

I love those stripes! Currently I'm working on a cardigan that seems soul-draining. It's at the endless stockinette body stage - sometimes I like it for relaxation, but right now I am cursing my long torso that makes my sweaters take longer...

love the dork socks
Being retired from education it seems I'm always on vacation ... love seeing new things, taking lots of photos, meeting new friends, sampling different foods

I've been eying the sockhead hats for a while, just haven't committed yet! The best thing I've ever done on vacation was hike through a jungle filled with monkeys and sloths in Costa Rica, and now I wish I was back there!

Going to italy, every bitbof it, was the best. Except for throwing up after getting off the plane in Venice. Soul draining? Anything I knit thst isn't my choice of project. I try to not ever get sucked into them, but a few times I failed at it.

Hmm soul draining, I don't think I've ever done a project I would describe that way, but knitting a plain stockinette sweater comes close I guess.
