though we still have the high temps & humidity, i've switched from summer knitting to fall.
i still need to finish a couple of summer tops (tops i've 95% completed!!!) ~ i'm thinking more about wool.
last year at SAFF, i found a wonderful hand-dyed superwash worsted. i wound a hank in the car on the way home, and immediately cast on the beeline . it took a bit to knit it, but it's a sweater that's been worn as often as i could (temps & dress code permitting).
so, this past spring, when i went down to the NC Fiberfest, i found the same farm as a vendor! ... and i got more yarn, for another beeline.
i did a lot of knitting on this at the beach. i'm almost finished with the second hank, and very close to beginning the ribbing on the bottom.
it's a favorite pullover, and this one will be done before the next SAFF.
the beach? yes ... i went to the beach for a 2nd time this summer. perhaps i'm making up for so many summers inland?
that's me in my desert get up. though i love the beach, i have my limits on sun exposure. i have no idea what my hair was doing -- that's "the beach" for ya' .
so, i'm there knitting on my beeline. typically, it would be more difficult to knit (wool) on the beach, but the air was a bit drier than usual. the only time i had problems with the yarn flowing was after my dips in the ocean.
we've had a very "sharky" summer in NC. that didn't stop me, or the other tons of other people i saw, swimming out beyond the wave break.
on that day, the waves were quite gentle. the lifeguard was waving the green flag. it was also a good day for shells.
needless to say, it was an awesome beach day!
