Vay-Cay Wednesday

There’s been plenty going on here at the Lake, but very little knitting.

Progress has been made on the sock. Mostly while at the Chautauqua County Fair’s Demolition Derby on Sunday.

Didn’t realize I focused on the chair, not the sock. Oops.

I’ve been taking a roughly 90-minute walk on the beach every morning. And yes, picking up more glass. AA battery included for scale.


Monday’s “theme” was blue glass. Got four good pieces of cobalt blue. That’s really unusual.


Tuesday was “don’t break an ankle” day. The lake was pretty high and there were lots of rocks to keep me on my toes. Found a few big pieces, but a low “take” on the whole.


Today, the lake was going down a bit so the beaches were bigger and lots of glass was exposed. I’ve now filled a 12oz Solo cup with glass and will have to start a new one tomorrow. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Just one sunset photo so far. From tonight.

Hope you're all having a great week. I'm looking forward to getting Sock Summit reports from Portland. Considering how this summer has gone so far, I'm glad I decided not to go. But that doesn't mean I'm not a tiny bit sad that I'm not there. I'm certain it will be an amazing event!

Your glass coordinates with
your sock!

One of these days I've got to copy all of your sunset shots and make myself a soothing screen saver. So pretty!

One of the coolest things so far at Sock Summit is meeting bloggers I "know" in person! Wish you were here.

I can't wait to hear all the sock summit stories, too. I wish I were there but it was not to be. Maybe next year they'll do one on the east coast.
