knitting on the beach spring break 09

  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….

  1. You are brave to knit on the beach! I am sand-phobic and can’t stand it getting on me, much less on my knitting. But maybe I could take something washable out there. Maybe I will try it. 🙂

    • wool is pretty sturdy stuff- i do admit to getting irritated with a few sand grains in my mink however!
