The rain. It never stops.

Traveling Sock at Coney Island

Knitting in front of the Coney Island MTA station sign.

In an attempt to liven up my blog, I came up with a new and exciting feature. Get ready, You Three Readers! In a totally original concept*, I will bring my current knitting projects around New York City and show it visiting exciting areas!

*In fact, so completely original, that Slate wrote an entire article about the lameness of the traveling gnome concept here. There is, of course, Yarn Harlot’s traveling sock, and if you have ever gone on vacation to any major city, you have probably seen a fellow tourist photographing their teddy bear/gnome/sock in front of a famous monument.

Traveling Sock at Coney Island

In today’s fascinating installment, the ugly sock goes to visit Coney Island in the pouring rain during a nor’easter. Coney Island is beautiful in inclement weather, though it also tends to make me whine. A lot. We went in the snow a few years ago, and it was really amazingly beautiful.

You should go this year though, because they are tearing down Astroland and building condos.

    I visited Coney Island for the first time recently and loved every minute. Right now, I am experiencing Coney Island photo envy. I just love that photo of you knitting in the rain. Gorgeous shot.

    Love the photos. Somehow the rain just makes me very sentimental.

    Thanks everyone! Adam is a really good photographer…and this set came out particularly well, I think.
