Where have those socks been?

Have you seen on the Yarn Harlot's blog how her sock in progress will travel with her, seeing the sights?  Famous people have held the sock in progress -- famous scenes have been photographed with the sock.

My latest finished socks didn't meet anyone famous,but they are foreign born, and they did enjoy a relaxing few days on a beach.

These socks began their lives at a resort in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic during one of the most relaxing few days I have ever spent.  It was a work trip for Steve, fun for me -- and I did nothing but sit by the pool or beach, read, listen to audio books and knit.

Pattern:  Once again, the Yarn Harlot's pattern:  A good, plain sock from Knitting Rules.  I cast on 68 instead of 64 and used a smaller needle size than specified.  Other than that, no changes.

Yarn:  Berroco Sox in colorway Liverpool.  This is a self-striping yarn, so it was fun to watch the colors appear.  The socks are not exactly alike -- off by just a couple of stripes.
Needles:  US size 1 (2.25 mm).  I like this size for socks.
I finished the first sock on the plane on the way home -- knit in four days.
