I finally took my Trekking sock on a little trek yesterday afternoon. We didn’t get far — just to my favorite bit of bay beach near Sag Harbor. We didn’t stay long either — as you can see, the sock was a bit uncomfortable! The air was so damp and dreary, and the wind was so stiff, that we decided to pack up and head for town and the post office.
Here is the intrepid sock, Trekking XXL Color 67, getting out of the wind behind a boulder. It would really rather be inside its special sock bag made by Trek, don’t you think?
And here, the increasingly damp and bedraggled sock is being used to gauge wind speed (that would make it a windsock, I suppose). This is not a trick photograph, the sock will have you know!
I had to make another trip to the post office this afternoon when I heard that the first Sundara Yarns Petals Collection packages had begun to arrive.
I’d say it’s been a hard, but good, day all in all. I think I’ve ordered enough of the right books for the big holiday weekend. I have to let it go though, because there’s nothing more I can do until next week. It’s certainly been a stressful day, but having that beautiful package to open, and an evening to smile at it while I work on my Lagoon scarf and my Flower Basket shawl, will do a fine job of unkinking my shoulders. Oh! Before I forget — thanks for all the lovely comments and blogiversary wishes, everyone!
