Gone Coastal

It must be Monday, because there's a picture of a sock at the beach on my blog. The second of the pair is very close to being finished.

Socks at Sunset

Matagorda Beach is a little different each week we go there. This week the sand was very soft and I'm sure we would have gotten stuck driving on it if we hadn't been in our new-to-us Jeep Liberty 4x4.

Dunes Reflected

The weather was gorgeous! It was cooler than last week, but still warm enough for shorts.

The only problem was that my ears began to ache from the cool breeze blowing across them. I hadn't brought a warm hat with me so I took a pair of clean wool hiking socks I had in my bag and used them as earmuffs. Now, isn't that attractive?

Function Over Fashion

I think it's time to knit some headbands just for the beach!

  1. Actually I don't think they look bad.;-) Your pictures are beautiful and I love the dunes reflected in your new Jeep. I'll bet you have new head gear ready to wear next week!

  3. You're a fashion trend-setter, that's for sure! :-)) I'd say it looks better than the nylon "babushkas" my Mom used to wear when she took her walks!

  6. Now I have seen you come up with some inventive ways to show off your socks but you are rising to new heights with the function over fashion!...
