Kno Knitting on the beach

SteveP's picture

Ok, I had extreme plans on getting a cardigan well underway while vacationing in Playa Del Carmen and sitting on the beach.

I've knit on the beach before and found it a great way to relax, but I guess I've only done it while camping here in Ontario.

I figured I would only be distracted by sun, sand, and surf.... but holy stitch holders, the people on the beach were god like - beautiful tans and amazing muscles...

I couldn't keep count - not even knit one/pearl one ribbing...

Now that I'm back, I'll be knitting indoors and making much more progress.

We had a wonderful time - and Thanks John Paul for the suggestions... We also found a couple of great restaurants by Coco beach. Local clientelle (always a good sign) and amazing food.

I've always found it tough

I've always found it tough to knit at beaches. Sand gets in your yarn. Patterns blow away etc... I guess I could attempt something mindless like a sock in magic loop in stockinette or something, but with all the distractions, who knows what it would end up looking like!

I think I mentioned that

I think I mentioned that I've been to Playa/Cancun a couple times and thought maybe you'd be too busy people watching to do anything else. My days consisted of shopping, sunning, eating, drinking and going to the gym. Glad there was plenty of eye candy for you. You can always knit at home!

Playa del Carmen is my all-time favorite beach! The water is an amazing color and you are right -- the men there are beyond beautiful and so friendly and nice. Good on you!
