in Tel Aviv
The first photo is looking along the coast toward all the hotels on the beach. The second is looking toward Old Jaffa.
And specifically, I am knitting socks (why are you not surprised?).
Knit from cotton JaWoll on 2,5 mm dps over 60 stitches. Alternating rows of knit with *k4 sl1' gives just enough texture to make it interesting and doesn't slow you down a bit.
