Sock Holiday

The Jitterbug socks were (finally) finished while at Kiama and they painted the town red (or rainbow), watching the kids fishing, checking out the Blowhole, and cavorting with the local wildlife!

Of course, by the time I got to the next town, Ulladulla, a new pair (in fact two) were cast on, as usual one for travelling, and one for when concentration is not a problem. Introducing Opal and Hill Country Sock Yarn. The Opal is being worked toe up, with a gusset on top of the instep, and HCSY is toe up with a "Lotus stitch" lace, short row heel.

Next two were spent in Batemans Bay, where the socks enjoyed walking, eating, visiting the beach, a river cruise, and the start of the very exciting George Bass Ultra Marathon (boat racing), Mogo Zoo, the townships of Mogo and Berry.

Seriously all the socks worked on these last three days wish all the Northern Hemisphere sock knitters a Happy New Year, and would like you all to know, its bloody hot here right now!!!
