A Finished Object and a Walk on the Beach

Happy Saturday!

I finished Asbury Park Shawl last night--really enjoyed knitting this one, and the feather-and-fan edging with the beads is lovely.

The bind off was a new one to me---you start off my knitting two and then knitting those two together through the back loop. Then you knit one more and knit those two together through the back loop. And on and on. It makes a bit of a thick bind off and I really like it.

We took the dogs for a walk on the beach this morning--it was a beautiful clear morning and very little wind when we started--it started once we got about 2/3 of the way through the walk. We found about a dozen unbroken sand dollars, Tim found an agate, I found a little conch shell, and we saved some little sea creatures that had washed up on the beach (we threw them back in the water, I'm guessing they probably washed right back up).

Tim found something akin to coral except it is made by worms. I really have no idea what that is. We didn't take it with.

Our lovely rock and Cape Kiwanda. 

Enjoy Saturday!!!!

That is a lovely shawl, and the bind-off sounds really pretty.
Your Cape Kiwanda is also really pretty!

Fantastic last photo. Thank you for sharing. And the wormy thing? Good call to throw it back.

Your shawl is lovely! I've used that bind-off before. Besides being pretty, it's stretchier than the standard bind-off.
Sounds like you had a lovely walk on the beach.

Great shawl-the bind off is new to me, too! I can see how it would beef up the edging nicely!
What incredible beach finds! Just adds to the joy of a good walk!

What a lovely walk! That bind off sounds interesting - I'll need to keep that in mind. Your shawl turned out lovely.
