Traveling Socks

Last week my husband and I visited some of my relatives a few hours away from where we live. We packed up and set out on our journey.

We stopped in the lovely Asheville, NC for lunch. As we were exploring we came upon a yarn shop and my husband encouraged me to go in (he is a keeper).

That’s 3.1 oz of Merino combed top and a skein of Viking Raggen for man gloves. What else do you expect when visiting a yarn store?

We made it to my family’s house mid-afternoon and spent the evening talking and visiting. When it was time for bed I was surprised by the most beautiful quilt.

The next morning we explored my uncle’s garden, picking beans and learning how to dig potatoes. It is super hard work. I spoiled quite a few potatoes finding that out.

We had a picnic lunch with more of the family that came by to see us. We even had an unexpected visitor!

My husband was tired from digging potatoes, so he took a nap.

He had a lot of fun playing with the dogs.

As the afternoon waned we got ready to come home to the city.

This sock has a lot of good memories knit into it now.
