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….

PIP(pattern in progress) finished-

Managed to finished the easy tunic pattern finally-it’s printed ( a new  long timer record(4months later).tunic This would be a good first sweater.It’s a very easy knit and appeals across age groups(I wear it, my 20 year old wears it).A more advanced knitter would want to add short rows in collar and refine arm shaping.Pictured in debonnaire soft spun, but doable in any dk yarn.tunic back
