MInd you, it can get cold here too. Not the –20° C wind‐chill kind of cold, but chilly enough that a large knitting project is a definite bonus. In the photo above, I am sitting on the life‐guard steps at Nokomis beach just to the north of Venice, FL. It might actually look reasonably warm, but there was quite a cutting breeze, and a rapidly‐growing blanket was perfect to keep my knees warm.
That's what I love about knitting. In the summer you can sit under a beach umbrella and finesse your latest sock, and in the winter you can create instant warmth just with the infusion of a number of skeins of wool. There's not many crafts quite as flexible and rewarding as that!
I'll be back next time with more news about the blanket I was working on, the Ocean Currents Blanket. So until then,
Keep warm ‐ and keep knitting!
