All knitting, all weekend!

I did absolutely no stitching this weekend, not even on my beloved Stitchers Wallet. I was all about knitting and I have some results to show for it!

First off is my Summertime Tunic which I'm pleased to say is at almost 8 inches above the ribbing with only three more to go before I can start the front and back separation. I really like the fabric the Elann Callista is making. It's going to be dense enough that you can't see through it yet it is very light weight and I think will be comfortable to wear during the summer months. I can't wait to get it done! Sorry the photo is lousy but we've lost the light at this point.

And here is my SOS progress - 2 and a half repeats of the Solstice Slip pattern. I really like this pattern and am very pleased with my progress. I plan to focus on both pieces during this week and hopefully I will have a lot more progress to show you soon!

The weather here was heavenly and I went to the beach for the first time this summer. I took both projects and worked on them - it was divine. I tried a new beach not too far from my house and it was easy to find, get parking without having to walk too far and it was not at all crowded. It's at the end of a road so I think you have to know where it is to find it. Now that I do, I'm going to become a regular! Hope you had a great weekend.

The projects look great! Hmm...I knew a beach like that when I lived down there...wonder if it was the same one? ;) I miss the beach--lakes are nice but not the same thing!

Lobstah, I went to Parson's Beach in Kennebunk (or is it Wells at that point?).

Hi Patti, Came over to check your pooling on your Solstice Slip and WOW!!! You win! I did tug and tug until mine started spiraling. I was already on siz. 1s, so I couldn't go down a needle size or the leg would have been too small for me to get over my freakishly high arch. I'm beginning to like the pattern, though. It's growing on me. Let's check back as we go along. Which stitch count did you use? I think I used 75, or medium. But yours should be different because you have stockinette on the foot, whereas I am in pattern all around. I had to start up another pair in handspun to keep from freaking out with those pools.
