Kniting for the Soul

After a large knitting project like the shawl I just finished, I need to do some comfort knitting.  So, being inspired by several blogs lately to pull out old projects and finish them up,  I pulled out these socks that were more than halfway done but then languished for some reason.
These remind me of the thick socks we used to wear as kids in our winter boots;  we called them pack socks cuz they were for our pack boots.

  3. Fun socks. And yes, that picture would make a very cool watercolor! It is fun to go outside and watch the ISS and know that you are, too.
