managed to knit and needlepoint on the beach in florida this year- note flamingo on bag. black yarn is a mink ( brushed from animals not pelts) and cashmere blend which is amazing. it turned into this hat.
Also did cute child’s sweater using the german self-striping yarn( schoeller &stahl). the pattern looks vaguely missoni-ish with a slight chevron. very easy and inexpensive to make. Also, saw sharks in the water (right after I’d gotten out..), ate too much and shopped too much, love Florida….

in case you think I have been doing nothing but sitting on the beach- I have actually done quite a bit of knitting- new bag 1st sample, new blue heron cardigan (more later),moose dog collar almost needlepointed. However, I have actually done alot more SHOPPING! God, it is amazing…..
most ridiculous American fast food I’ve seen so far- frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches from Costco.but before you pronounce this the absolute epitome of laziness, consider that the crusts are off, the edges are crimped so the stuff doesn’t drip out and they do defrost quite nicely on the beach…. Actually, I am quite fond of fast food and have discovered Checkers which does sublime french fries( excuse me, chips) for about 50 cents. have not made it to Krispy Kreme yet….
