Crochet by the Sea

My daughter Robyn had to go on a business trip to Galveston last week, and invited me to go with her. Even though it was cold, we had a great time!
We stayed at the beautiful Silverleaf Seaside Resort.

While Mommy worked, Abby and I crocheted.

And played.

And what do you crochet when you are on a trip to the sea side? I worked on an afghan for granddaughter Anna, made with this yarn, "Ocean" from Red Heart (act surprised when you get it, Anna!).

And what stitch pattern would be most appropriate? Why, shells, of course! (oh, and Vsts.)

Although the ravages of Ike were visible everywhere, everyone we met was friendly, kind and upbeat. And the ocean is incredibly beautiful!
Thank you Robyn, for taking me with you!
I had a wonderful time, but I am so glad to be home again. I will be working on patterns next week for an old-fashioned thread potholder ebook.

Looks like you had a great time! Start em young and they'll stick with it. You'll have to post a pic of the finished afghan.
