Over the past couple of months, I have thought about blogging, but I got myself into a bit of a Winter hibernation mode -- sort of. What has gotten in the way is "Summer" -- we have been having Summer weather in the middle of our Winter. My welcome to 2012 had to take a back seat for a while.
There's something so peaceful about the beach in the middle of the Winter -- no crowds, just a few beachgoers, surfers and nature.
We took a walk on the beach at Crystal Cove State Park just after Christmas. A holiday tree on the beach -- I just love it!
And I have been knitting quite a bit, too. Here is a shawl I knit using Miriam Felton's pattern for the "Adamas Shawl". I used some Handmaiden Casbah which is a merino, cashmere yarn.
This shawl might look awfully pretty with some of my handspun yarn.
