We've been on vacation this week! We rented a house in Seabrook on the Washington coast, and the kids and grandkids joined us here for a week of last-of-the-summer fun. They're all here till Saturday, though I have to work this weekend so I'm headed home tomorrow.

We've had good food, lots of fun and games, and beach fun. Lewey just loves beach fun. He also loves sleeping.

And of course there has been knitting.

Everything I brought with me seems to be red.

What all is in that pile?

There is a pair of socks.

That is the sweater I started a few weeks ago. I'd be farther along if I hadn't screwed up and had to rip back about 3 inches.

There is Color Affection!

Last but not least, some spinning. This is a wool-silk blend that I have been working on forever. I think there were about 8 ounces of this in batt form, I have a few ounces left to spin.

I head home tomorrow, then “get” to spend the weekend working in the hospital. But it's my last few hospital shifts for the near future, I'll be 100% clinic based from now on, which is a good change for me.

I'm off to do some of that knitting!

  1. Lewey is just the most adorable little fellow ever! If you ever need a dog sitter……… The knitting looks pretty good too! Beach fun with a wonder dog and lots of yarn is the best!

  2. I.Love.Red. Just had to get that out there. And I too am knitting a Color Affection. Such a relaxing mindless knit.

  3. ha, my Billy sleeps like Lewey, so darn cute. Glad he got to go on vacation with you. Love the yarn you’re winding.

  4. Lewey!!! So cute! My Kona-bear sleeps the same way. Her lips fall back and it makes me wonder if they dry out while she’s asleep. Corgis are so much fun.

  5. Lewey is just so cute! Love the running picture. Corgis (& I think most short legged nomaks) seem to retain that happy puppy look for life.
