The best thing about living on a small island is that the water is never too far away. This is our local beach, a favorite summertime hangout, which is totally deserted at this time of year because the kiddies are all in school. So of course I had to take advantage of the temporary peace and quiet during my vacation.
It was lovely to sit on the sand with a fun knitting project and listen to the waves. Every once in a while I would take a break to dip my feet in the cold water. Bliss!
My Aranami shawl is coming along nicely. The pink, blue and orange tiers went by quickly, but then I had a temporary color block and was uncertain of what color to use next from my stash of knit picks palette. However, seeing this picture of it laid out on the sand gave me some interesting ideas!
|I changed the colors around a little from the last post.|
Here's what it looks like this week:
I decided to go with a tan color that brings to mind sand and beach and summer. This week has been cold and rainy, so knitting on this shawl is the closest I am coming to jet-skiing while wearing a pink tutu and tiara!
