Knitting on the Beach on Easter Sunday - The Movie

Since we celebrated our Easter on Saturday, Ross and I had no plans on Sunday.  It was 80 degrees, and sunny in Barnegat.  Ross threw the sand chairs in the back of the car and we headed over to Long Beach Island (LBI).   Once we got onto the beach, I was glad that I had worn my jeans, and had brought a jacket.  It was about 10 degrees cooler and breezy.

What I am knitting in the video is a sock.  I like the idea of knitting socks.  Quite a challenge for me, though.  Something I will probably never master.  But that doesn't stop me from trying. 

I had bought the yarn on Friday morning, the day before Bella's birthday party.  I foolishly thought I could whip up a pair in time for the party, which was to be on Saturday at 4:00.  At about 11:00 Friday night, with bleary eyes, and about 75% of the way through the first sock,  I discovered that I had dropped a stitch.  I tried to fix it, but I had no clue how to.   I wound up with tangled ripped out mess of a sock.   

 After a few more attempts, I finished the first sock last night.  

  Not in time for Bella's party, but hopefully there will be a second to match this one.
