I too have a traveling sock, though mine goes to somewhat less exciting events than some people's. Here it is posing with two of MIT's eager beavers, as well as some lovely chocolate from the hotel at my host institution. My travels, while not replete with knitterly company, are not devoid of it. Tomorrow the Mafia will give me the MIT knitter's tour. It may involve less wool than wine (I BYO'd the former), but so be it. There will be women, and probably song, and really what more do you need when you already have a sock in progress? Anyway, can't wait.
