We're back home briefly - and had a great time at the beach. At my kids' ages, it is hard to not have a blast at the beach. They were in the ocean or the pool the entire time we were at Virginia Beach, a fact that amazed me even as I kept one eye on them.
The other eye was on my knittin'! This is my favorite picture - the colors match the ocean - and the tiki bar at the pool. Great Shirley Temples! Ah, pool knitting!
Knitting cotton on the beach is (as my friend Pam would say) fabulous! A little water, a little sand - no worries. And it felt so cool and light. Perfect summer knitting! Here is the first square again after it got dipped in the Atlantic Ocean. As my nephew-to-be is in California, I thought this would be kind of a fun blankie fact.
Here's how much yarn I had left after my fourth square using this color. That's a shortie needle (8"?). Now that's close!
I'm holding off on pictures of the squares I've completed until I finish them ALL. [If you want to see picture after picture after picture of sqaures, check out the KAL.] I will let you know I am on my 5th square and you'll get see another one to celebrate an upcoming holiday. Oh, the suspense!
We topped off our visit with a run to the Purple Cow. Insert requisite tongue picture here!
