I went to the beach yesterday and brought along probably the oddest collection of activities anyone could expect to see at the beach. In my giant sparkle bag was one Christmas cross stitch, one Hocus Pocus cross stitch, one Lantern Festival Cowl* in progress, one Great Weekend Cowl** in progress, and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (I feel like starting from the beginning and other books just aren't doing it for me right now). I have a feeling that my beach activities are one of a kind and I was probably the only person on the beach with a pair of scissors. There is something about July and August that gets me in the holiday spirit.
* I am working on a cowl I am ridiculously excited about. It is a cowl covered in a chinese lantern pattern. I would give you a pattern release date but I never make those deadlines when I type them so... soon.
** I am also working on a pattern for a Great Weekend Cowl with bold stripes and a cute henley type placket. It will be a freebie I will also release soon.
