WHAT I BROUGHT BACK
Here are my official souveniers of my beach vacation. I’m a knitter, so can I help it if my idea a perfect souvenier is yarn, searching high and low for a LYS to visit, with extra points if it’s located on or near the beach?
First up is Knit One Crochet Too Kettle Tweed, 60% merino, 20% baby llama, 10% bamboo and 10% Donegal. There’s no color named, just a number, 4523, but since I think everything should have a name, I’m calling the colorway My Destin-Y. Very clever, especially since it came from a shop in Destin, Florida, named (surprise!) The Destin Yarn Shop. My project for this is c2knits Jackie, a topdown tank. Nice and summery, don’t you think?
Next is this lovely Crystal Palace Mini Mochi, which also has just a number, no real name. I’m calling this one Sea Glass because it makes me think of the small bits of glass sometimes found on the beach, beautifully frosted by waves and sand. No official project yet, but I’m leaning toward a cowl, specifically, Botanical.
Still happy to be home.
