Inspired by the Sea

Newport Oregon

I'm a "true blue" California girl so... I love the ocean! The ocean's beautiful blues are often my color choice for my knitting projects.

My husband and I are "westcoastin' " vacationing on the Oregon coast. We are staying right on the beach in Newport, Oregon so I am inspired by the sea as ever!

Sea Waves Shawl

We spent the afternoon yesterday beachcombing. What a photo opportunity the beach provided for my Sea Waves Shawl. You can certainly see why I named it that...doesn't it look just like the color of the ocean waves?

My Sea Waves Shawl is Louisa Harding's design called Periwinkle. It is from her Beachcomber Bay book. Louisa grew up beachcombing so she loves the ocean and the beach just like me. In fact, quite a few of Louisa's books are photographed at the beach including her new summer books.

I Love 2 KNIT

We're at the beach for a few more days...
then we're off to the great yarn city of Portland!
You know what I'll be doing...don't you?
