I was out and about today: to the store to fiddle with a computer, to Sag Harbor to get the mail, and to my favorite place, Long Beach near Sag Harbor. This time I parked on the North Haven side, just because. The tide was out, and the pebbled beach was a good place for a little walk on this fine day.
There’s a lot going on at the edge of the bay, and I’m glad I stopped by for a visit.
I’m still having a great time knitting the sweater — in a little while I’ll go knit on the seed stitch border at the bottom, then it’s on to the neckband, and then the sleeves. At the moment it’s a big lump of knitting, so I won’t get a good photo until the body is completed. The colors in the yarn are still shifting beautifully, and I’m pleased with my decision not to bother alternating skeins.
Sweater knitting has helped me focus on something quietly repetitious, and on what has been going on in my head. I’m past the serious pondering, and back to the regular run-of-the-mill stuff (What’s for dinner? Will I get a chance to rearrange the art table today? Can I find the time to spin some BFL for this month’s Knitter’s Book of Wool Woolalong, or do I have some yarn?). This is life!
