Horse Show Knitting

Sock knittingMy daughter started riding at age 8. It was adorable. Now that she’s 20, it has taken on a more serious turn. Since high school she has competed in IEA and IHSA Horse show competitions. We have a wall full of ribbons to prove it. But as you can imagine, like any sport, it takes not only a lot of practice but travel to said competitions. This weekend it was an 8 hour drive to one of my favorite towns: Savannah, Georgia. But the best part is that she drives now and I can…you guessed it: KNIT ON THE WAY! Let’s just say those Fiesta Contrast Toe socks are well underway. I’m using the confetti colored yarn I ordered from Craftsy, Patons Kroy Sock yarn in Mexicali Self-Stripe. I love how a handful of color will turn into socks and now that all my blogging buddies have gotten my completely addicted, they will be done before I know it. 

In the meanwhile I made the team some molasses cookies and snickerdoodles to keep their moral up as they compete with 12 other colleges for those elusive blue ribbons.
