The Calm of the Lake

Somedays you need the sand in your toes. 
Sometimes you need the water under your feet. 
Yesterday we got both. 
Lake Michigan is back
Well, it never left but it seems like a different creature in winter all covered with ice blocks.  

Just plugging along on my Ruched scarf. 
It is my escape for now. 
Mindless and pretty.  

Al's doing well in Oklahoma with Nathan.

Teresa is going to try socks!
She asked for a good pattern.  This is my go to: 

Sock Recipe: A Good, Plain Sock

Let us cheer Teresa on!  Once she gets the multi needle task done, she's going to love it.  Teresa, if you can't seem to get them cast on , ask another sock person to start you off. 
No Shame!  

Happy Happy Saturday my sweet blog pals.

Looks like a lovely day for visiting the beach. It's been gorgeous here, too: mid to high 80s and blue skies. I love it!

Happy knitting.

Go, Teresa, GO! Once you get the hang of all those needles, there will be NO STOPPING YOU!!!

I think I'm heading out a little later for some "sand in my toes" too!

Good advice Kathy--you can do it Teresa!! I love Lake Michigan and miss it a lot. You are right, the summer lake is lovely and the winter lake is amazing. Have fun on the beach. Can't wait to see Ruched Scarf.

Your lake looks wonderful.. glad it's warm enough to play on now! OK.. the socks. I clicked to Ravelry and could not find a way to buy just that pattern. Do I have to buy the whole book? Also - to be fair, I did knit a pair of socks already, with DPNs, with cotton yarn. But it was a long time ago so it will almost be like doing my first pair. I bought a set of bronze DPNs in size 1. So, I want to use them, so I need a pattern for size 1s. My yarn ON Live "Supersocke" 4-fach whatever that means. Thanks for being a good knitting role model! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

The lake photo is beautiful. We went to the zoo today, it was fun. Good for Teresa starting her second pair of socks, I am still not a sock knitter.

Love seeing your sandy beach, kathy b :) We had a rocky, wet packed dirt shore at the reservoir while camping, but the water was clear and cool which was a blessing on our hundred degree days! You and Teresa inspire me to want to try to start another pair of socks on DPN, but for now I am just going to cheer you and Teresa on :) xx

The sand/ water combination is very good for the spirits! I'm glad you got to enjoy a visit there. Go, Theresa, go! Sock knitting is the best knitting!

Araignee said...

That is the recipe for a good time!

Sand, sun and water. A wonderful combination. Good for Teresa. I just started a new pair of socks yesterday. It's a free pattern on Ravelry called Petty Harbour. I love making socks but have never been able to keep a pair for myself. A family member always claims them first.
We'll all be cheering Teresa on, I know she can do it.

The lake is definitely different in the summer.
Best of luck to Teresa. I'm sure she can do it!
