The Real Thing

Little C. got to try out his Boardwalk Sweater on the actual boardwalk this past weekend.

It was a beautiful sunny day, with an occasional crisp wind. My husband and I took a long walk with his mom and soaked up all the boardwalk sounds and smells. The idyllic ocean view was somewhat marred by exposed piping and heavy mechanical equipment. The township is frantically trying to restore the beach before summer after all the storms this year. It was a challenge to photograph the ocean without it.

It's always so fulfilling to get outside, enjoy the sunny weather, and spend time with family.
I'm so happy with the boardwalk sweater that I've sort of embarked on a bit a knitting tear! I've noticed that my modus operandi usually involves one primary knitting project, and 1-2 secondary projects I like to switch back and forth with. Lately, however, I keep getting drawn to other additional project possibilities. I even had to write down a short list of patterns/ yarn colors so I could keep it all straight. I'm also currently obsessed with making a bunch of drawstring bags in which to keep all these WIPs. I love when these bursts of creativity happen. I wonder if Little C. will catch the creative bug too? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
