I love going to the beach. Especially beaches with rock pools, where you can potter about for hours gazing into those lovely underwater gardens, watching the sea creatures going about their day-to-day business. My favourite time to go is in winter, at dusk. That’s when all the little critters start to get active and come out of the holes or from under rocks where they’ve been hiding all day.
You also get to enjoy some fabulous sunsets…
The animals I find most fascinating are the sea anemones, of which there are several types at my local beach.
This one is crazy cute:
This little beauty was particularly inspiring:
When I got home, I rustled in my stash to see if I had anything that matched.
Look what I found!
This is a combination of possum yarns from The Wool Company and Zealana, a bit of New Zealand merino yarn that I dyed a while ago using lichen, some eco-dyed yarn from a small New Zealand merino yarn producer Ihakara Wools, and some of Stansborough‘s Mythral.
And now to have some fun with it!! 🙂
PS: My dial-up Internet connection appears to be behaving itself magnificently since my massive grizzle over its performance. I’m making the most of it by pumping out the posts while it lasts!
