My dad's family does go every year. They rent the same house, even.

I don't get to go every year, and I probably won't go next year. I love it there, too, though.

I'm headed to the beach next month and wondered if I dare try "beach knitting". This past spring I did some beach knitting but the weather was much cooler. I figure I'll work on a small project like a hat.

I'm going to Puerto Rico in a month and would really like to bring my knitting by my son, 13 months, thinks they are toys and wants to play too . My DH and I are getting some time alone (son will be with my mom) for a couple nights so I'll knit then.

I can think of better things to do with DH on a couple of nights alone...

On second thought...

LOL! My husband would be grumpy if I brought knitting on a trip without the kids. I'm sure he would have other ideas. Although it sounds kind of nice to me, my son (19 months) likes to try and help me knit too!

I took my knitting to Reid State Park in Maine, but I discovered a drawback that had nothing to do with sand in my knitting. I went swimming to cool off, then sat down to knit. I pushed a knitting needle through my waterlogged thumb. Oops.

I live outside of San Diego and I take my knitting to the beach in Oceanside all the time. Nothing complicated or delicate, usually a discloth or something of the like.

I just moved out here in October and I remember when the idea of bringing knitting to the beach. I thought nah, it will just get messed up...but the sand comes right off. I am so glad I dared to knit at the beach!

I LURVE knitting on the beach...it is beyond relaxing and just nice. I look at it as a productive way to get a tan
