3-2-1- Cast Off!!

Last night I finished Banana Cabana sock #1. (It was a very productive night at Yarn Haven with my knitting bunch.) Really, though, this sock is the garter rib pattern sock from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. I have just renamed my sock after the wonderful colorway I'm using from Cider Moon. Before trying to get some sleep, I made sure I cast on and got started on the ribbing for sock #1's mate.

Mayhem and Absent Minded Professor both ooohed and aaaahed over the sock. I think on the bus ride to Washington I will be starting a pair for Mayhem. I have some Cider Moon GoGo in my stash for her. A plain ribbed pair should go quickly.

Here's Banana Cabana sock #1 for your viewing pleasure.

While we're on the subject of socks, please go welcome a couple of new sock knitters to cult, I mean club! Johari just completed her first sock and Mark is so close he can almost taste the success! The process has not come easy to Mark and he has blogged about it quite a bit. Maybe some cheerleaders will help.

A week from tonight I'll be making sure I have everything packed for the trip to Washington. I have to decide on a couple of small knitting projects to take on the bus. I know the Baby Surprise Jacket is going. The baby shower is in 5 weeks. I know I'm taking one pair of socks to work on for sure, maybe two. The question is, which socks? which yarn?

Clever cover shot there! You know I like those socks. One day, I'll knit up Banana Cabana. I can only hope they'll be as nice as yours :o)

Look at those beautiful Banana Cabanas! Love them! Can't wait to see them in person!
And I'm already imagining the Go-Go yarn in sock form. Fun! :o)

I need to stop starting new stuff and finish a few old things - like the Campfire sock I've got going in CM Glacier... My BSJ 2 is "this close" to being done though.

That is a good looking sock!

Any chance that you'll see any yarn stores on your trip?

two socks atleast... that busride is LONG (granted its been 8 years since i've done it myself (HOLY HIPPOS 8 YEARS?!?!?!) but i did it for my 8th grade trip... two pairs atleast to keep you attention... think you've got trips there AND back... not to mention for the sanity in the hotel room :)

the sock looks AWESOME!! i love the bright yellow...

As for the bus ride one more tip... DONT TAKE 85 KIDS TO A TRUCKERS STATION FOR BREAKFAST... food poisoning and bus rides are not fun (I know from experience on that trip)

Good Luck with the next sock!
