I Wish Every Day Was...

A day at the Beach. (Line from a kids song them play on the satellite radio.)

First up, I finished the baby jacket that was requested by a customer. Started June 10, finished June 26. The pattern is my own, the lace part is called little and large diamonds. The hat is just a 2x2 rib with some shaping at the top. I used Sirdar Denim Tweed DK in faded denim. The color isn't the greatest cuz I took the pictures inside with no flash so the pattern showed up better. I tweaked the color a bit with my camera software to make it a closer match.

The boys and I went to the beach today. It was the first time the dog has ever been at the beach. Pictures to follow in my next post. I took a ton of them today! Almost filled my card, but I did have two small video clips on it. It's only a 256. I really need 1GB now with the better camera. Anyhoo, I took my mother's socks to work on since I need a pair for this month's SAM5 KAL entry. I only got a few stitches knit since I had the dog tied to me. She was quite silly acting, so it wasn't condusive to knitting. But I got a couple of nice shots of the sock at the beach.

It was gorgeous there today. It was nearly as warm as town. (I hate it when I get there and it's foggy and cold and you need sweaters and pants and all that.) There was a nice breeze blowing. My best friend and her family should be on their way from the airport as I type. She wants to spend lots of time at various beaches during her two weeks here. Her son has never been to a real beach, and her middle girls was only a toddler and can't remember. I think the oldest one remembers a bit. She was here when she was one, then again when she was four-ish.

Gotta go water the garden before it gets totally dark outside.

Happy knitting!

The sweater set is really cute. I hope your customer loves it!

I really love that sock. Totally dig those colors together. What yarn are you using?

I remember the beach from my childhood. We lived all of a block from it and spent a lot of days there. The New England coast of my childhood is VERY different from the coasts that I have gotten near since getting into my 20s. I miss that beach but haven't managed to get up there anytime recently.

Very cute baby sweater and hat! I love the beach! When we were in Cape Breton on vacation, we only had Biko with us, Sam was 10 weeks old, and I didn't want him to come on this long car ride. Anyway, Biko loves to swim and she went nuts on the beach there. Look at your sock, it has the color of the beach sand in it!

That sweater is ADORABLE - and the hat too, that is so sweet Sheri. I'm glad you had fun at the beach, I hate when it's cold when I get there too. Can't wait to see pics of the pup in the sand!! I can't believe you can knit at the beach - you are very talented!!
