at a surf contest you might:
see lots of people on the beach and in the water
do a lot of watching and waiting
you'll apply sunscreen. often.
and pay close attention to the color jersey your favorite surfer is wearing (it changes with each heat)
so you'll be able to find him (or her) in the ocean
you'll visit with friends
not quite a two day sweater, but it was close! we spent the entire weekend at the beach for chucks surf contest, he thanks you for the kindest words. he ended up finishing third in his division. i am so proud of him for getting this recognition on saturday, the wave of the day!
knowing just how long we would be out on the sand, it seemed like a good idea to bring a project that could be done without concentration, or even too much attention (i was in charge of those grands!). shopping in my stash i chose some lovely grey wool by quince and the annabel cardigan pattern to bring along. it's a fun easy knit, all done in my favorite garter stitch. i've finished the sleeves (can you see the dpn's sticking out of one in this photo? ), i made them bracelet length instead of the three quarter it called for. and there is one more thing i wanted to add before it's done, i'll share soon. rav notes here.
p.s. that is a squirrel painted on the tree! it's at the entrance to a charming seaside home (where a famous author and artist lives), where i wish i could take a peek inside.
