Socks go down the shore

As all New Jersey-ites know, one goes 'down the shore' when one goes to the easternmost part of the state. One does not go to the beach, or to the seaside, one goes down the shore. Yesterday my socks and I, or should I say partially completed sock and sock in training, went down the shore to visit my sisters and mother who were vacationing at LBI. While there I took the sock for a little peek at the ocean. We didn't go out for too long...sunblock and all those things. Sock is really coming along. I figure another inch or two and then I'll start the toe. I'd love to have the second sock cast on before the end of the month. That way I'll have time to work on them on vacation!

I don't know which I envy more, your beacy location, the fact that you are on the halfway point of your Sockapalooza socks or your wonderful HAT!!!

Lovely sock! Happy knitting!

Dear Home Cook,

You're right. I should have credited you on the photos. I'll do that right now. Alotta

Thanks Mom!

OK, you're making my socks cranky that they can't see the beautiful beach. Jealousy rears its ugly head here.
