We are at the beach!
I don't think C and I have ever taken
a beach vacation alone before...
it is splendid and decadent!
The home we have rented is awesome -
right on the Gulf
with two huge porches
overlooking the ocean,
and loads of comfy chairs all over the place.
I made a bit of a collection from our early morning walk:
I am doing some eco dyeing and printing
using sea water as my mordant,
so the local leaves are a great find.
They have been bathed in the sea water too
so I'm hoping that makes them print even better!
The shells are the beginning of a collection for Jeannie,
my left coast buddy.
There is a wonderful outdoor shower,
and this lovely rusted piece was hanging in there.
I have borrowed it,
and am printing some cotton with it.
It already looks great -
after only a few hours!
Barker is totally enjoying the warmth of the sun:
I've been knitting a good bit today:
put the finishing touches on two sweaters,
(Hannah Fettig's "Featherweight and also her "Yoked Cardigan")
and also worked on this one:
(that's Hannah there in the photo on the link!)
knit on Quince's Osprey yarn.
my colorway is "lupine" -
I love it!
I really enjoy Hannah's top down,
relatively seamless sweaters...
can you tell?
Last night's sunset was pretty incredible:
We had just arrived,
and got the boys out on the beach for a nice walk.
What a reward!!
Hope you had a wonderfully decadent weekend too!
