No salt, no sharks

I may have repositioned, but I'm still knitting from the water's edge!

My northern home is on the coast of Lake Michigan, kind of like the gulf, but as my grandson says, "no salt and no sharks".

The weekend weather was perfect for walking on the beach with Mason. Huge piles of sand are everywhere, it is always fun to see the shoreline change as it moves from winter snow fences and sand piles to beach umbrellas.

Not much design work has been done, but it was fun spending the weekend with family.

I have made good progress on my couch throw, it is a super easy knit in bulky yarn. Originally I planned to use it in Florida, but I brought it north with me to finish. It will look great with my MI furniture, so I am working hard to get it done.

Pattern: Elaine Reversible Throw
Yarn: Schaefer Yarns, Sandra

Have you started knitting items for warmer weather?

No salt, no sharks! Just bears & cherries!

I've got some yarn waiting for me to get to the beach so it can become a shawl.
