Sunday Adventure & Knitting

I will warn you that this is an extremely picture heavy post. Was very hard to narrow down the pictures to share. So with that said....

Manny and I decided to go out on one of our little adventures this past Sunday. We took the top off the Jeep and headed out to Greenport, Long Island. The day couldn't have been more perfect!

Greenport, LI:

(We had the most delicious meal here while looking out into the harbor)

(A close-up of what we think is a Seagull sculpture)

(Our bellies were full and I in a new hat)

Orient Point:

(Catching a Ferry coming into dock)

(Catching Manny skipping stones in the ocean)

Vineyard Hopping:

Lenz (Stop #1)

Pellegrini (Stop #2)

Finally, just so there is some knitting content, a picture of the Sock Yarn Blankie.

Good progress has been made. I have been picking up stitches between 2 blocks to create the second row of blocks. I currently have only 5 more blocks to attach to complete the first row. After that I will pick up half the stitches on each end (cast on for the remaining half of the block) and the second row will be done. I spent my dinner break last night weaving in yarn ends. I think this will be the only way to keep my sanity. Weave in as I go.


  1. I love love love that seagull sculpture and the sock blankie-

    Looks like a fabulous day!

  2. Whoa, who knew!? It's the Napa Valley of Long Island! Looks like an awesome day.
    Love the sock blankie. If you need sock yarn scraps let me know, I'd be happy to mail you some.

  3. Kim's right, it does look like California. It also looks like two people having a wonderful day in love. Sock blankie is going to be so awesome.

  4. What a blast! Sun, good food & wine, and knitting. Great day. I'm jealous. ;}

  5. Oh I love the pictures! Looks like a wonderful way to spend a Sunday.
    That sock yarn blanket is looking really nice!
