Road Knitting

I had a lovely weekend, on the road to visit Charleston SC (about 90 minutes away) and Folly Beach, just outside of Charleston.

I like to knit in the car but need something easy, as this really nice guy I know was driving. (I also keep knitting in the car during the work day, in case I need a knitting fix while parked, or happen on to a really long red light).  I am working on this

It's a center square for another hap shawl, but no patterning.  I will keep this one in the car so it may be a long time to the finish...

The yarn is the  beautiful Mountain Colors.   This yarn is River Twist, its supposed to look like handspun.  This yarn is 2 ply 100% merino and lovely and springy and soft.  A joy to work with.  I do love a springy kinda wool to knit with.  They have more yarns than last year, and the Winter Lace wool-silk blend in laceweight is calling to me...

Here are some pix from the Folly Beach

Loved this "shell trader  take one, leave one"

Common Sand pipers  (Actitis hypoleucos)

 Big jellyfish, couldn't id, didn't touch it or eat it...

  1. Thank you for those lovely photos. They Look so much like the Danish North Sea. It took me a moment to find out what a shell trader is and it made my heart warm. We have also long red lights. I can skin a banana and eat it. Have not knitted, though:)
