SO...if you remember, I took about 10 projects on the trip with me. (Sorry, Ernie, that I didn't get your socks knitted.) I became fascinated with some yarn I have that is already knitted into a "flat" and then hand painted with some funky designs. It is called "Flat Feet" and is produced by Conjoined Creations. It was fun seeing how the design on the sock flat turned into something different on the sock.
I did work on another project, a gift for my mom. But I didn't make much progress on it.
