Monday was hot and sunny and the sock was complaining about the heat so we took it to Nelson Beach in Plymouth. It was beautiful! Breezy and warm and the water was just cool enough to be refreshing – but not so cold that it made your feet cramp. Of course, the real reason we like this beach is because the parking is free.
After hanging out at the beach for a while – without refreshments because I didn’t plan well – we headed over to The Cabby Shack for a beer and something to eat.
Back at home, I sat on the deck with some ice-cold lemonade and Dale and paid some attention to the Leaf Lace Shawl. I’m up to 15 repeats of the pattern now. That’s something like 339 stitches across and it takes forever and a day to complete a row! I’m stopping after 17 repeats so the end of this part is in sight, at least. I may even have pictures to show one of these days. In the meantime, I’ll keep writing a travelogue even though this is supposed to be a knitting blog!
