Hiking Socks

Carp Lake 1

Knitting and self sufficiency go together like hiking and socks. So why not lump all of these things into one back county camping post? Over labor day weekend, I had the good fortune to hike all over the muddy expanse of the Copper Country’s Porcupine Mountains. Needless today, there is a certain fuzzy feeling that comes with knitting in the middle of nowhere. Above is a photo of Cloud Lake, once known as Carp Lake – the former home of the Carp Lake Copper Mine.

Here is the hiking sock, a easy and durable worsted sock knit up in Plymouth Encore’s Worsted Colorspun Yarn in Copper drift. The yarn varies from a bright yellow, to  a coppery orange to a muted brown, all which are tied together with a constant blue. Like Lake Superior, Carp Lake and all of the waterways in between weaving their way through the Copper Country Landscape.

 The hiking sock pattern will be posted to the blog after I finish my pair of socks.
