The weather is here,

Beach KnittingI wish you were beautiful…. Actually, the weather is wonderful. It is cooling down, finally, and we found this fabulous tent thing at the dollar store. Can I hide out here forever?

Mr. K says no, so tomorrow it is back to the house and back to our day jobs.

When we arrived at the boat there was a pod of dolphins, about 50 to 100 individuals, there to greet us. They were chasing schools of fish toward the shore and having a feast. Fascinating!

Today we are off to the Shrimp Festival in Gulf Shores. Mr K. loves shrimp. Me, not so much. But I did spot a corn dog vendor yesterday while we were touring the arts and crafts part of the festival, so I’m set.

  1. Oooh. Dolphins. That sounds so wonderful. Wow!

    Are participants allowed to snag the Secret of the Stole button for our own blogs? I can’t tell you how much I totally adore that knitalong. The pattern is fantastic!

  2. Ivy,
    Yes, by all means snag a button! This is the post that has all the buttons on it for you to choose from.

    I am glad you are enjoying the pattern. I really love how it turned out myself. I can’t wait to see all the finished stoles.

    Enjoy, DK

  3. I “see” your beautiful weather and I’ll “raise” you one wood stove and a Sou’Easter. Truely? It’s raining fit for Noah and blowing a gale. In my local “One Particular Harbor”, it’s a wee bit choppy right now. So it’s not beach knitting but perhaps…wood stove knitting? (Sucked up to it like a cat in a sun puddle, I am!)
    Mr. K has good taste but corn dogs rock too – especially with a dribble of mustard. Yummm. And to watch the dolphins? I’m jealous but then again, I get to watch the geese overhead. Ever notice how they look like lace patterns?
    “…the cannons don’t thunder, there’s nothing to plunder…”

  4. Ooh, that looks so lovely! Camping on the beach; you’re so lucky! I’m stuck out here in California, studying for the SAT’s. Blech.

    At least I have your beautiful stole to knit and admire! Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog. 🙂
