Socks, socks, socks

I guess I just love knitting socks. These three below are my current projects (we won't talk about those that are currently hibernating)

On the left we have Merino Lace Socks by Anne Woodbury from Favourite Socks: 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave in Dyelicious Hand Dyed Yarns Merino/Cashmere.

In the middle is my first attempt at toe-up sock as per Laura Chau's instructions in Teach Yourself Visually Sock Knitting. These are knitted in Wollmeise merino in Vincent.

And finally we have my basic sock pattern done in stripes of Noro Silk Garden Sock.

Now the question is do I take these three with my on my holiday next week or do I take these instead:
and start some new socks? Or do I just take the lot and leave the clothes behind?

Unfortunately there is not a lot of room in a Subaru Impreza WRX hatch when one has two adults, 2 children and 1 English Springer Spaniel. And we need to take linen, clothes and activities - no TV but lots of sun and surf. Here's a peak:

Well maybe not so much sun in this picture but definately lots of surf.

We actually had to postpone the holiday a week (thanks Steph :)) as one English Springer Spaniel by the name of Marley had the bottom 2 inches of his ear bitten off, through the fence, by the neighbours dog. He's fine now after a little surgery and the dog wire fence is now also covered with chicken wire to keep errent noses where they belong. Fortunately we have good neighbours.

Keep smiling :-)
