first encounter

December 13, 2009

i’ve been really busy recently with work-related knitting and secret holiday projects, but i have an old pattern that i just published on ravelry. i was exploring other publication options that didn’t work out, which is why you now get to see some very old pictures of this hat from the vacation i took with my boyfriend in august!

a “hurricane” (scare quotes since i think it was downgraded by the time it got to cape cod) hit for the entire weekend we were out there, but that didn’t stop us from going to first encounter beach twice. it was definitely my favorite part of the trip, by far! it’s a tidepooling beach, and the tide goes waaaaaaayyyyyy out during low tide. it was a gorgeous spot. we were there as the tide was coming in – here’s a gratuitous, non-knitting-related shot of how pretty it was there!

i’d knit hats for both of us testing a new design of mine, and, since it started to get cold and rainy (serves us right for going to the beach during a weekend-long rainstorm), we put them on.

so, i’ve finally put the pattern up for sale on ravelry. click here for more information about what i used!

now, back to work! i’m only $600 away from my loom…
