Back From Vacation

(Bet you didn't even know I was gone.)

I've been going to the Outer Banks of North Carolina on vacation pretty much every year since I was in elementary school. I originally went with my family and when I got older, I started going with my friends. Chris and I were there last week. We did pretty much nothing the entire week--it was lovely. I read seven books.

I also started, and nearly finished, my first sock. I used a pattern (more of a formula, actually) from the book Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. I've been wanting to make something for myself made from my yarn in the colorway Annabel Lee because it's pretty much my favorite--unfortunately the sock doesn't fit me. Still it's really exciting to make socks and easier than I expected. (The color is not super accurate in the photo below.)
