Trekking Under the Wire

As I may have told you, I joined the Trekking Along, which requires you to post your progress in June, July, and August. Well, here it is, the last day of June, and I haven't had a chance to go trekking anywhere! Ack!!!

So I got creative (we won't call it cheating. nope. not cheating. definitely not.) and the boy-child and I went for a little walk in the woodsy area next to the building where my daughter has occupational therapy.

We checked out the local wildlife.


We took the prerequisite sock(s)-on-the-tree picture (and yes, there was poison ivy on the other side of the tree stump, but we stayed far away from it.) Sock color- too light!


The boy-child decided he didn't like walking in the dead leaves, pinecones, and round sticky-balls (I have no idea what they're called), so we resumed our trek on the sidewalk.

Here you see my right foot (and yes, I do have a left foot, which is under the goknit pouch), my wonderful Birkenstock sandal that will be dead soon, I didn't get them resoled before the leather cracked, and now it will cost almost as much to resole and replace the footbed as it will to replace them. Unfortunately, I don't have money for either. So, I'm wearing them until they die. Oh, wait! There's my left hand too (I knit... Continental? I dunno. I'm a picker.), my goknit pouch, and my sock-in-progress. Btw, this is colorway seventy-something. Shades of purple- 76 or 78 I think. Ball-band has gone incognito. Sock color- accurate.
Edit: I looked up the colorway- it's Trekking 78.



The boy-child. About 50 feet ahead of me. Of course. Ok, wait, maybe not 50 feet at that moment. Don't mind me. (And yes, if you're suspecting something weird, he does swing his hips while he walks. Weird. The girl-child, btw, doesn't. Or at least it's not as pronounced.)


We see a humongo rock next to a picnic bench that I hadn't noticed before (the rock, not the picnic bench.


So the sock wanted to go be photographed on it, and I obliged. (The other sock, btw, is nestled safely in my go-knit pouch.) Sock color is pretty accurate.


Hopefully next month, I'll go on a real walk. Please cross your fingers for me.

Edit: Thanks to my sil Cheryl for bringing my misspellings and totally wrong words to my attention. :P

Hey - don't be so hard on yourself, you're out and about, enjoying nature in the hardest of all places - the city! I'm using the same colorway and I love it!

I love the trekking going on a trek. Don't you just adore your KnowKnits pouch? They're the best. How's your sock progressing?
