Caribbean Blue

If I could go to the Caribbean again, I would in a heartbeat. It’s already getting hot there during the day, with the sun shining down, and the warm blue water, and the sweet, pretty flowers…

We went to St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands a few years ago (four? five?) and spent the week at this hotel/resort with a pool and its own beach. We spent tons of time snorkling off this beach, chasing the cuttlefish around, exploring big rocks, watching the bright fish dart about, trying to follow a sea turtle. The sand on the beach was white and hot, and the water was so clear and calm.

This is a blend of BFL and superwash merino, dyed by Lisa Souza that I bought at Stitches East last fall. The colorway is “South Pacific,” but looking at it just makes me think about the Caribbean islands. Sure, it looks like Hawaii, too, but I loved the Caribbean. I think it’s the blues.

  1. Hey, sorry about the lurking. That yarn is quite pretty. Anyway, I’m home this week. I don’t know if anyone else is still around. But let me know if you want to hang out.
