They're Done!

They're done - they're finally done!  My Maple Leaf Socks are done!!!  With an anticipated trip to Durango, Colorado, for Thanksgiving, I just had to make myself finish these socks.  It will be quite chilly, I'm sure, in Durango at Thanksgiving, these socks scream "Thanksgiving Holiday" to me, so there you go . . . .  The first time I will wear them in on Thanksgiving Day as we prepare and have Thanksgiving Dinner with our daughter and son-in-law.  By the way, she has NEVER prepared Thanksgiving Dinner before, so it should be fun helping and teaching her the ins and outs of a traditional Thanksgiving meal preparation.  I only wish that our other daughter and her family could be there, but due to scheduling, etc., they can't.  Perhaps another time.  We have tickets to ride the steam train the day after Thanksgiving - can hardly wait! 

These socks were knit with Lorna's Laces in the colorway called Glenwood.  The pattern was written by Jeanie Townsend who makes her patterns available to the Townsend Sock Yahoo Group members.  See my side bar for a link to the group.

Beautiful socks in an absolutely stunning colourway. Definitely will wow everyone at Thanksgiving dinner.

Have a wonderful safe trip and enjoy the train ride! Dare I say that I remember trips to my Grandads when they were the only train;)Hugs from Niagara Canada
