Sock lectures

When Irene stayed in our house last January, she was knitting socks. It inspired Masako and since then she has been into knitting socks.

But she had been wondering how Irene knitted the gusset which may be the most difficult part. Sock lectures were often held in different places during our trip to Nantucket.

Here the gusset part came. Irene was a great teacher and always patient with Masako and taught it step by step very kindly!

After leaving  New Hartford, we went to Houston to place orders for fabrics.
The photo below was taken at a hotel in Houston, TX as our visit was about to come to an end.

Finally the sock was finished at the airport in Atlanta on the way back to Tokyo!
It looks lovely, doesn't it?
