Echo Beach and Dragon's Breath...


After finishing Love Train on the way to the beach, I started this Echo Beach by Kieran Foley at the beach.  I'm using Noro Sekku in colorway 3. 

Ended up ripping it all out on the plane coming home and starting over... now, I'm looking forward to finding some time to get back to it!!  Not yet... but, soon.


A few beach echoes of my own... the Little Men working away... oh, I'm missin' these little guys.


And, can't you just feel the breath of that Dragon?!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.  Make your voyages...

I do believe that I can hear the roar of that dragon! Such industrious little "beach bums"! I've played on that same beach--perhaps in the same spot.

Have a great weekend.

Best,
Bonnie
P.S. We, three, don't really watch Honey Boo Boo. We just wanted to sound more erudite than we are!!

Ooooh, scary dragon! I'll bet Nana was suitably impressed with the roar!

Donna said...

That dragon breathing face! I seriously do not like starting over on a project....usually find a way to love it the way it is turning out! :-) You are a better woman than me. Love, d.

Margaret Adamson said...

The boys are just so darn cute! I love the fierce expression on his face in that last shot. :) Enjoy the your Sunday!

Awww so adorable! :)

Yuck on having to rip it all out and re-start, but I know you will enjoy it when you get the chance to knit again.

Blessings to you always sweet friend.

Those boys are so cute, and Dragon breath must be something horrible based on that little ones face. Beautiful knitting, hope you can manage some time to do more today.
Hugs,
Meredith

I had to laugh when you said you ripped out your knitting on the plane back. I find every time I bring a project on a trip I end up doing that. I still love the doing though so I won't give up dragging projects along. Hope you get the courage to attack it again soon.

Sandy said...

Your little men are so cute. I remember wonderful beach vacations when mine were "littles". :o)
I love the colors on this piece. I'm sure it will turn out as beautiful as everything else you do.

Shug said...

Your photos are so clear. Great topics here!! Isn't it wonderful, just watching our grands play....and use their imaginary thinking?

Velva said...

I can see why you would be missing these guys!

Laura at Beehive Rugs said...

Love your new project, and that's one scary dragon!!

janice smith said...

Love, love, love those colors, Tanna. Starting again just means you get to enjoy working with that gorgeous yarn a little longer :-) Your little men are very handsome!

Judy S. said...

Very cool dragon! And what fun photos of your little guys. Grand kids sure are fun, aren't they? What made you rip the shawl? It appeared to be going well!

karen said...

you ripped it out???? I hope when you read this comment you have knit up all that was lost and then some. That is a mighty fierce dragon :)

Pride In Photos said...

tanna, they are so precious...love how they work/play together in the sand. Little man with his dragon...look at his face? You can feel his emotion!

Rose said...

As you well know, I knw first hand about ripping out! You'll love your piece the second time around.

What busy beach boys! I know you miss them. Grandchildren are so precious and time with them sacred.

Have a good week!

Barb said...

Dragon needs to brush his teeth...what a cutie you have there.

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

THE BEACH! With family. THE BEST.

I LOVE that dragon...he is the best dragon I have ever seen!

kathy b said...

ohhh so sorry you had to frog it. It looked like you were off to a good solid start. Darn. Your babies on the beach are too darn cute. No wonder you miss them

Tricia Buice said...

Oh those boys are so adorable! the photos really bring them to life for those of us who have never met. Sorry you have to start over but it's going to be so pretty!

Amanda said...

Looking forward to seeing the finished "do-over." Love Roo's face in that last pic! I don't think I have that one in my batch! The boys were playing with their dragons today and loving it. ;-) Love you and miss you. xoxo

Jennifer Holmes said...

dragons, echos, adventures.. a perfect combo. I know that echo beach shawl will take you there. Beautiful.

Debbie said...

Wouldn't you just know it. I take a short break from even blog reading and you show up with some of my favorite posts you have even written? I have just scrolled and read through all the wonderful birthday posts and just LOVE the whole thing. I pinned a picture of the table, even though I didn't even have a category to put it in. I put it under "just fun" because that's the way the details made me feel. Love it all!

As for this post, I know you miss those precious boys even more than the beach. I want some grandchildren just like yours.

Give a boy a bucket and boat loads of sand and he'll be a happy camper for hours. Zack is almost 15 and it is still his favorite thing to do on the beach. Whenever I hear "dragon" I think of Puff the Magic Dragon -- my brother's favorite song when he was little. Best wishes, Tammy

Catherine said...

Dear Tanna, Those photo's bring back nice memories.
Those "little men" are missing you too.
Blessings dear. Catherine xo
