Introducing my "Beach Walk" knitted wrap -- in my ETSY shop now

Walks along the shore...
Music made by the waves as they crash against the sand....

 your heart is light,
your thoughts are quiet...

 the latest in my
"Seraphina" collection...
~
introducing my beautiful
"Beach Walk"
knitted wrap...

 hundreds of tiny shells--
(maybe hundreds of hundreds)
glisten in the sun...

 ~ but your eyes 
are drawn to one.. 
or two.. 
or three...

handmade flowers
adorn both ends of this exquisite wrap~
each single flower accented
with tiny shells,
and a combination of
 glass, crystal, and
seed beads...


my own combination 
of special yarns...
the colors of
sand, and shells, and beach stones

  making this wrap even more special
are the added accents of a
truly lovely vintage
"Parisian" scarf...

knitted in my own
"mistake" stitch...
(yes, there is a story there...)


 delightfully soft,
and the most perfect weight
to wrap around your shoulders
when the breezes are cool...

just like that one special shell
that glistens in the sun
and captures your
heart...

 ~there is only 
this one
special beach wrap...

and...
it has been months in the
making~

truly,
a one of a kind design...

 the most perfect accessory
for your every beach vacation..
and...
a comforting touch
for those times when you
are "dreaming" of a
walk on the 
beach... 
~
you can find my
"Beach Walk"
knitted wrap in my ETSY shop
here...

Callie
decided to "photobomb"
the photo shoot...

Just keeping it real...

 I finished this wrap, 
literally... the night before
 my friend Marsha and I took off
 for our annual girl trip 
to Michigan...

 I couldn't wait to photograph
this gorgeous wrap
in an actual beach setting...

 these photos were taken
in South Haven,
on the beautiful shores of
Lake Michigan...

 this wrap traveled with me
on my own beach vacations
and cruise vacations
for almost a year...
knitting all the while on the
design...

 a lovely patterned stitch...
I "accidentally" created this stitch
when I was working on another project...
~






this stitch is used
exclusively in all of my
"Seraphina" collection
knitted wraps...

A work of art - and deserving of display on the wall (when not being worn, of course). I can only begin to imagine the wonderful compliments the wearer with have - and I don't understand how you can part with it!!

Wow, I do love the markings on Callie! The colors in that shawl are so soothing and beautiful, definitely like walking the shores of a sandy beach.

Love your beach wrap, now I know this is not quite the done thing, but I wish you'd go into mass production and then we could all have one :) It is stunning.
