i often think about how lucky i am to live in the pacific northwest. we have mountains, lakes, beautiful trees and the pacific ocean at our doorstep. i love the ocean. nothing makes me feel more at peace than hearing the waves crashing. this last weekend i got to spend time at the beach with my best girl friends.
this was our beach cottage for the weekend. it was adorable and had a beautiful view.
the time went much too fast for me and so now i am hoping to find some more time this summer to get out to the beach. it isn't too far of a drive (about 3 hours or so). of course i live about 5 minutes from lake washington and 15 minutes from the puget sound so i am always able to see some water whenever i want. i love it.
what would be a trip without finding the local yarn shop? i was pleasantly surprised at the selection and came home with some treats!
new sugar and cream colors. destined to be dishcloths of course!
you saw me knit backyard leaves with this yarn in a baby blue but i couldn't resist this amazing green. this yarn is one of my top five favs.
i finally found some trekking in the brighter colorways. i won't be joining the knit along, but plan on casting on soon.
so that was my weekend! i came home a bit tired but have been working hard on some stitch markers. before i left town i sold out of all my inventory! i am SO not complaining :)
happy 4th. i am headed over to my friends for a get together and fantastic view of the big seattle fireworks show.
