Beach Outing – Part 1

Last week we had a couple of beautiful sunny days, so I decided to get the dogs for a walk on the beach. I also wanted to see the destruction the heavy storms we had at the beginning of the year caused. The destruction was vast, but they’re slowly cleaning it up and bringing the beaches back to their original state.

TEST KNIT – Haruni Plus – Finished

My Test Knit of the Haruni Plus shawl for Emily Ross is finished, and after blocking it in half (not enough space to block it as I usually do) I needed to take some photos, so here they are.

I still need to take final measurements, this one is even bigger than my “Around the World in 80 Days Shawl“.

Angel Cowl

So I finally finished this cowl which I started way back in July of last year. It came out huge!!! I can wrap it around my neck 4 times without any problems, this is definitely going to get a lot of use next winter. The doggies helped out with the photoshoot :)
