Knitting Under the Radar

 When a blog friend asks you to knit something for her because she has this idea...I was thrilled to be in on the adventure!  Benita is writing a series of patterns based on the inspiration of geography or travel.
  This is the inside of the sock when I was finished with knitting.  The 'weaving in the ends' thing is a very relaxing part of the process;  the wool holds on to itself and makes a very neat looking inside.
 I put them in to soak, and then laid them out to block!
 The little ends go outside for the birds!
 I placed these on my sock blockers and let them dry. She has the pattern available on her website and on Ravelry as pattern or a kit.  Ramp up your sock skills with this Trip up the Nile sock!!
This is the view from the front.

 Thank you , Benita, for letting me be a part of this adventure!  Where do we go next?!


  1. Are you kidding? I am soooo happy you are along for the journey.

    Let's see... Where to go to next? Let's get to the end of the drive and flip a coin on whether to go right or left. :)

  2. Now that is one very interesting and intriguing pair of socks! Putting you ends out for the birds? Waht a clever idea!

  3. very exotic looking socks - I am sure the knitting was fun! you could combine shadow knitting with socks:) I did a pair for DS, but I have to admit that the griffin on the leg wasn't easy to see - only when you lay them flat out.... what comes next?

  4. Those socks are so awesome. Were they hard to knit? I
    m tempted to order the kit, and I hate knitting socks!

  5. I think the word awesome but can't think of another one to say. The socks are just that AWESOME!!

  6. Very cool! Fascinating design, as always.

  7. Benita is doing a giveaway of this kit on dyed in the wool. Thats a lot of ends to weave! I would rather win the ones you already knit up.


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

Stage II

I have so enjoyed the knitting on this shawl ! And now the lace section begins-it will be time to think a bit more; I'm hoping it...
