We took a little getaway over the past weekend, and it was relaxing and fun. This time of year can be a bit crazy with all the holiday preparation, so we appreciated our three days at Cannon Beach in Oregon. The weather was less than stellar, so I even completed some knitting projects!
The clouds and rain did stop long enough for us to see this beautiful rainbow. Do you suppose that there really was a pot of gold in the water? It was hard for us to believe that last summer during low tide we were able to walk right out to Haystack Rock. During this visit, we couldn't even get close!
High tide almost covered the sand completely.
Can you see how powerful the water and wind can be? These huge logs along with lots of sand have been tossed up onto the walkway to the beach.
These are just a few of that rabbits that frolic on the Tolovana property. We watched a woman feeding them organic carrots, so I imagine they will stick around, don't you agree?
When we weren't roaming the beach, visiting yarn shops, or the bakery, I was knitting or writing Christmas cards. The above booties are for a friend who's expecting her first child in January.
It was fun to make this Almost Lost Dishcloth from holiday-colored yarn purchased ages ago.
This pair of mittens was made on straight needles although I did the thumbs on dpns because I was tired of seaming. I'd have to say dpns for mittens wins, hands down!
If you've never made one of Rebecca Danger's patterns, you need find one to try. They are fun and will make you smile every time you see them!
*Just to clear up the confusion on the cake in my last post: there was just ONE cake. The pastry chef changed the number upon the direction of the waitress as Dick made some sort of comment that he couldn't possible be 75. If you look closely, you can kind of see the stem of the 7. Apparently the 25 wasn't quite " it" either, and that infamous number soon became a 15! As to who sampled the cake before we got to DD's house, that shall ever remain a mystery. Have a great week!
