knitting at the beachLabor Day may mark the unofficial end of summer, but there’s probably still lots of warm weather to be had, and our southern hemisphere friends are looking forward to summer as I type. So there are probably a lot of people reading this with trips to the beach in their future who might be wondering if they can take their knitting with them.

The answer: of course! Lucinda from Sew Wrong offers a few tips on her blog, and they’re all good advice.

I would say the most important thing is to take a project that is washable. You will get sand in your stitches, so you need to be able to get it out again, especially if you’re knitting something you plan to use anywhere that’s not the beach. Something easy you don’t have to pay too much attention to is a great idea, too!

Have you ever knit at the beach? Spill it!

    Yes, I do knit at the beach but only something light weight,usually cotton. High temps = sweaty hands!

    I just knit by the pool, then there is no sand to have to deal with! :)
