Sock On the Beach Drink Recipe

Finally we have here the recipe from Cashyie! Mix at your own risk! *LOL*

  • 1 Part (peach) Schnapps or Grappa (preferably Williams)
  • 2-3 Part Vodka (or keep adding vodka until your cleavage or your date is cute)
  • Top with fruit juice of some sort (this provides essential vitamins, minerals and more importantly, sugar)
  • Serve in frosted glass with sugar around the rim and a tiny umbrella by *insert dream male/female bartender of your choice*
  • Enjoy the drink on a beach, preferably while knitting a sock!

Episode #1: Socks on a Beach (Show Notes)





Our premier episode! *Woohoo!*

Come join us in our ramblings....and listen to how we had to boost our nerves for the first episode with alcohol. We digressed a lot, but we had great fun!

We introduce ourselves...well, kind of:
- Elemmaciltur (Elemm)
- Bockstark Knits (Ms. B)
- Cashmacrylic (Cashyie)

Why this podcast?

What's on our needles?
- Elemmaciltur: "Boyfriend Socks" by Alice Bell
- Bockstark: "Gentleman's Fancy Sock" from Knitting Vintage Socks and "Falling Leaves" by Jessica Landers
- Cashmacrylic: Garter-Stitch Galore!

Knitting in German with Elemm: Ball band
- F├Ądig = ply
- Farbe = colour
- Partienummer = dye lot
- Welche Farbe ist es? = What colour is that?
- Zeigen Sie mir bitte Ihre Cashmere-Wolle. = Please show me your cashmere.
- Welche Farbe(n) haben Sie? = Which colour(s) do you have?
