Shell Beach

Soon we will post all about our Stitches West experience (which was fabulous). In the meantime, I thought I would share a photo I love, taken outside of our lovely hotel in Shell Beach on Sunday morning. After breakfast, Dis went to meet up with a friend in SLO, while Nasus and I stayed back. Nasus was going to study, I was going to go back to sleep, but we decided to go outside first, and then never went back to the original plan. We walked around a little down by the beach and then just sat out in the sun for a while. Despite a storm to the east of us, it was a gorgeous day at the beach! I'm telling you- it was so nice. I just love being near the beach. I could have sat out there all day. Maybe it's because I grew up in Hawaii, I don't know, but something about being near the beach makes me feel very happy and at peace.

On the knitting front, my Olympic second sock is...dare I say...close to being done. My PAIR is almost complete! Not quite, but it's getting there. I hope to post a FO pic soon!

Also, much more about Stitches (our terrific class with Melissa Leapman and the overhwelming hugeness of the Market) and our peripheral loopy adventures to come. Stay tuned for some"yarning," the "Not-so Amazing Race" to the Olive Garden, 2 giant poodles, one lucky boar's nose and a LOT loopy in Paso Robles, a death-threatening waitress, and a bucket full of crab, just to name a few.
