Sun Time in Connecticut

These are few scenes from sunny Connecticut. We've been playing at the beach, grilling, playing at the beach, shopping at the tourist store, playing at the beach and playing at the beach. It's been mostly sunny but a little chilly - not enough to hamper the fun but certainly enough that I'm actually glad to be knitting a heavy wool tote for the ITE 4. I've gotten just a few sideways glances for knitting around the campfire at night.

It's a felted bag that I'm making vertically instead of horizontally. I really hope it turns out because it's a lot of knitting and the deadline is coming up quickly. It's supposed to be felted so I may be heading to a laundromat - I don't think I'll have the patience to wait until I get home to see how it turns out.

I've also been teaching my cousin to knit. I
vaguely remember what it was like when all those loops looked alike! She's an eager learner, so it's been an easy job so far.

So glad you've having a relaxing vacation! Good luck with the bag, though I'm sure it will work out well.

What great beach pictures. They look like they are having a blast. I love the yarn your mom got you a couple posts down, have you knit with it yet?
