Back from the beach!

And conquering 2 knitalongs at once! We ended up staying in Traverse City longer than expected, but I'm not complaining. There was multiple yarn stores, lots of sun, nice sand, and freezing cold water, after all.

The charming view of the bay right outside our cottage.

The view while out for a walk.

This is the start of the first sock, set down for a little picture during a stroll on the beach (the trek). It is indeed my first Trekking sock for Trek Along With Me and I actually completed the entire pair while I was there! They are also serving as my first pair of vacation socks for the Summer of Socks, since I did them on vacation. While I was there I bought another ball of Trekking, so I may start another- though I am halfway through a pair in Socks That Rock too.

They're done! Emma loves them. I brought her back a few goodies from Traverse City too (cherry jam, obviously) but also the World's Largest Pair of Underpants, with a 100" waistband. It was a huge hit.
P.S.- The donations for Team Tiara are rolling in! Don't miss out on your chance to win some yarny goodness (see this post for details)- deadline is July 29!

I used the same colorway for my Trekking socks ... isn't it fun?

It looks like you had a wonderful time at Traverse City ... the lake looks lovely.

Thank you, thank you for the pictures! I'm a native of Traverse City and miss the water so much. I love Colorado, but miss the cool waters of the bays.

Yea for the beach vacations! Love the pics! I am so impressed - I have to get knitting on my Trekking socks. Isn't it fun to knit for two knitalongs at the same time? :) The socks are cute!

Those trekking socks are great! I wish I could have my holiday to go to such a nice beach, but I'll have to wait yet another week. Have a nice weekend!
