seacoast















I am nothing if not loyal to a pattern and a yarn. This is my third Seacoast and at my tenth-plus time using Rowan Handknit Cotton. I love both, and together they make the perfect summer sweater. The pattern by Joji Locatelli is perfect in every way and I could see myself making a dozen! I made my first Seacoast with white Handknit Cotton, my second with Rowan Hemp Tweed in black (I haven't Raveled that one yet and I knit it over a year ago; must get on to that) and this one in a quiet Ballet Pink. I love the yoke; besides having hidden increases in the ribbing there are short rows at the back neck so it rests a little higher up than the front.

We just celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary! We could not believe it and we both kept on saying, "Forty-five years? Has it really been that long?" I am married to the sweetest and most kind-hearted man I know. Plus he's funny. I think I got very lucky or was very smart 45 years ago. Maybe both! Sometimes he reads my blog, so if you are: Happy anniversary honey! I love you!

The artichoke in the vase is from our garden. The plant only seems to get smallish artichokes like this one so I usually cut them and use them as cut flowers. They last a good long time in water.  In late summer the artichoke will bloom into a purple thistle and they look so pretty in a vase too.
