Two Days

Saturday was a washout weather-wise (threatening storms and tornado watches), so we stayed home for a change. I spent most of the day with a pair of knitting needles in my hand. The result: my scarf grew several inches and the second sock of a pair I haven't even blogged about yet is well underway.

Sunday was the complete of opposite of Saturday. It was a glorious day of sunshine and mild temperatures. So after church, I packed up my knitting, John grabbed his fishing gear and we headed out for our favorite place--Matagorda Beach.

See how much the scarf has grown from last week?

This is my mindless knitting project. It's super simple: K3, P3 one row, then knit the purls and purl the knits on the other row. It's the alternating colors that give this stitch pattern interest.

And the socks I'm working on?

The ever popular Monkeys.

I'll have more to say about these when they're finished, which should be soon.

John didn't catch any fish, but he had fun trying.

  2. Ooh - great pictures. I'm overlooking the frozen Missouri river right now, so your pictures warmed me up inside and out.

  5. Both are looking very nice! I like the fancy socks you knit. I'm so intimidated by complicated patterns.

  6. My hubby wants to move to the mountains. I do love them, but seeing all your beach and ocean pictures makes me think I'd rather move near the ocean.

    You are going to town on that scarf! :-)

  7. The socks and scarf are beautiful. But I'm becoming seriously envious of your weather (and your beach).

  8. I am so jealous, I am sitting here under over 80-inches of snow and ice. Branches are breaking off under the weight of ice that formed yesterday. That beach looks so inviting...
    Love the socks and scarf, too. What a day.

  9. Your beach looks so peaceful. Everytime you take pictures of the beach it seem as though it's your private beach. How cool is that?! The sock color is very plummy! I love it! Hooray for the scarf progress!
