Cannon Beach

We've been having fun exploring Oregon lately and decided to head to the beach yesterday. I thought it would be a good chance to get some pictures of the shrug that I made while back in Anchorage. I don't have any in-progress pictures since it was made in airports and while on vacation. I just kind of forgot to take any pictures of it. I originally got this yarn to make a shell-type top but got the wrong weight of yarn. I didn't want to end up with a super heavy tank top which would kind of defeat the purpose of a tank top. So, I found this pattern instead. It will be good to throw over my shoulders if I am wearing a tank top and get chilly. The pattern is Lacy Summer Shawl by Lion Brand but I used Knit Picks worsted weight comfy yarn which is 75% cotton and 25% acrylic.

It was so hot yesterday that I only put the shrug on for the time that it took my husband to snap a few photos, then it came right back off.


We did some walking around and searched out a yarn shop. I was so into the yarn that I didn't even know my picture was being taken.

To end the day we stopped by the Tillamook cheese factory. We tasted cheese then got some ice cream. That makes for a happy Crystal! Mmmmm
