As soon as I finished the Monkeys, I cast on for another pair of socks - Cable Rib socks from Favorite Socks in Candy Apple Sleeping Dragon yarn. It's taken me a while to decide if I like the pattern/yarn combination. I do seem to have a hard time keeping track of when to do the cable. I finally put in a marker on the row where I make the cable so that it is a bit easier to know where to make the next cable. This new sock has been photographed already - it travelled by ferry to Fire Island and sat on the beach looking at the ocean. Fire Island is a really nice place and I loved the fact that cars are not allowed from April to October. The beach was really beautiful. The next day it travelled into New York City to see the American Ballet Theatre performance of Cinderella at Lincoln Center. Today it may go horseback riding, but there is a better chance that it just may watch. I hope everyone is enjoying their Summer of Socks - I know I am!
