Hi there, today I’m working in the evening and on days like that I sometimes go to the beach and today was such a day. I went with my mum and nephew who are on vacation here for a few days.
Today the weather was not super hot and when we went to the beach late this morning the sky was partly clouded and the wind was fresh and I sat there knitting away in my polar fleece sweater and shorts. And I guess the Icelander in myself has just not yet understood that my skin is super fragile and if I’m going to spend ANY time at all on the beach, no matter what the weather is like, I MUST lather in SPF50 or more! Of course I omitted this today and now the fond memory of knitting on the beach is completely forgotten and the torture of skin on fire has taken over EVERYTHING. I’m even having problems working as the only thing I can think of is how much my legs hurt! ARG! How stupid can I be!!!! Promise, I will NEVER again knit on the beach WITHOUT my super sun block protection!!!!
I hope you folks are more serious than I am and that you remember to take care of yourself when out and about in the sun this summer.
But all is not wasted, I did get some knitting done! I’ve decided to do some tube socks for my niece and nephews and I cast on for the first pair yesterday and I got quite a lot done at the beach today. I’m using bits and pieces so the socks are a mismatch but I hope they will look nice once they’re all done.
That’s all for now, I must go back to work and the pain in my burned legs is keeping me from any creative writing:)
Next time, I’ll be sharing a fun and free program with you – perfect if you like colour/fair isle knitting so stay tuned:)
Until then, take care and enjoy your week
