The pink lace is longer, the shawlette is dry, and I finished the Keppi hat, but that's about it for this week's stitching. Check out what others are knitting at Patchwork Times
We had a couple of nice days weatherwise which got me out in the yard to do a bit of work. Aren't these pretty? The sunshine encouraged them to bloom.
Then on Friday we headed to the Oregon Coast for a long weekend. We saw lots of signs of spring on the way there, but the weather didn't hold. It was windy and chilly most of the time, but we had fun anyway.
The resident goose was quite entertaining but
just a bit intimidating up close and quite different looking from other geese we've encountered.
Skunk cabbage was blooming among the grasses.
We love the view from our favorite unit at Little Creek Cove. ( Note the blue sky! It didn't stick around long.)
Of course the sun came out on the day we left after a rip-snorting storm during the night. You can see how wet the sand is, but someone was already enjoying the beach. We were amazed at how the winter winds and rains had flattened out the dunes that we'd walked on last September!
Here's what it looked like then. Quite a difference, eh? Well, back to work; there's lots of catching up to do.
