Mother Nature is Confused.

Tuesday: temps in the 30's with rain and wet snow! (that luckily didn't hit the ground here at the beach) Wednesday: temps didn't get out of the 30's. Thursday's temps reached a high of around 50, yesterday was sunny and warm in the upper 50's. Today, it's November 1. Partly sunny and temps in the 60's! So, what better than to take advantage of Mother Nature's confusion and sit on the beach. I knitted, Kathy read. Since I got the new cane made for beach walking, it's easier to do just that. Not too far, but far enough that I can still look for seaglass and shells. I never thought I could do that on my favorite beach again. That made me very happy.
Here is one of traveling scarves I'm working on. The theme of this particular scarf group is, "purple." The pattern I chose, appropriately enough for beach knitting is "foaming waves".
I also got a few rows done on my February Lady Sweater. I don't think I'll have it done in time for next Saturday, but I can dream. I got some advise to start knitting the sleeves now, to avoid knitting them with the bulk of the body in the way later. I think I will do that since I'm almost ready to start another ball of yarn. I'm using Malabrigo Worsted in the Cognac colorway. I love the color, but hope the lack of a twist in the Malabrigo yarn doesn't hurt my sweater's wear.
In keeping with trying to get back into a semi-regular blogging routine, here is today's sky, from the beach in Bay Head NJ. Even the boating enthusiasts were taking advantage of a warm 1st of November.

So nice to see knitting on the sand. What a great use of the unseasonal weather. It's been in the 90's here, but just this weekend cooled of and is raining a bit.
