Yarn Along

My Yarn Along posts are not very popular...
they don't get many views or comments, let's try to change that today.
If you're here, leave me a comment!


I am still working on my
Neapolitan Cowl
with DyeForMe Merino Baby Alpaca Yarn, it is a very soft yarn and a joy to work with.
This cowl is a smooth, easy knit...if you can knit and purl, you can master this cowl.


On another note,
our lilacs are blooming right now, lilacs have been my favorite flower since childhood.



I have a crush on my new "project bag"...
if you look closely at the top fabric, you can see the cute little lambs.



I love the way these fabrics all go together...
This bag is the perfect size to hold most smaller sized projects,
and it is the perfect size for holding this project.




I found these lilacs on an abandoned lot,
good thing I had my clippers with me.

Seaside Heights, NJ

My Grandmother lived here and I spent many summers here as a child and young adult.
I enjoy coming here more in the off season,
before the vacationers and people from out of town take over the area.
This town suffered so much damage from super storm sandy,
but they have rebuilt and recovered.

The beaches are beautiful.


The dune replenishment project has taken a long time but it is well underway...

The amusement rides that were in the ocean after the storm,
have been rebuild and are as colorful as ever!

One lone laughing gull was enjoying the sunshine and the view...

This boat and 

Lucky Leo's have been here for as long as I can remember.

As we walked back to the car, I noticed this cool dolphin bike rack.
Seaside Heights, lots of good memories for me!
