My Mermaid Net is from a pattern called "Adding A Little Zing". It is from the book The Yarn Girls Guide to Knits For All Seasons. The pattern is an easy 4 row lace pattern. I am knitting it on #15 needles. It is a quick knit project...perfect for vacation knitting.

My seaside vacation knitting project has been my Mermaid Net.
My Mermaid Net is a summer shawl to match my Mermaid purse. It will be a perfect light covering for summer evenings back home in California.
I am knitting it in the summery yarn Flotsam by Louisa Harding. The slubby Flotsam yarn really does make it look like a net! It is almost finished now.
I am going to add fringe to my version of the pattern. I might even sew some sea shells on it to remind me of the ocean here.
The Oregon coastline is beautiful as are it's beaches. The Oregon beaches are different than the sunny California beaches of my youth. Visits to the beaches here are cool and grey.
