These Old Socks

It warmed my heart today to see Jonesy wearing these old socks. You see, these are the first pair of socks that I knit for him many, many years ago. They are plain stockinette socks knit with Regia sock yarn. I can't even count how many times these puppies have been thru the wash - machine wash & dry hot.

Can you believe that he's wearing them here in Zihuatanejo, Mexico when it's 86 degrees and sticky humid today? He says they are comfortable! What a guy.

Tomorrow we are heading into town to provision for a little side trip to Isla Grande in Ixtapa beginning Tuesday. We will sail for a couple of hours - then anchor out there with our cruising friends from the sailing vessel Cyclades. They were there last week and want to show us the great swimming & snorkeling sites there. Okay! We're game! See ya!

The Germans surely know how to make sock yarn that stands the test of time. I wish I could say the same for the pairs I've knit from Lorna's Laces. They shrink something awful if you even say the words "tumble dry low"!
Thanks so much for your winter full of blog postings. Been reading along and lusting after your journey. Your photos and writing have been inspiring. Hope you make it to knitting camp.
