Day at the Beach!
Note the completed knit bag in the photo: it's the Ilene Bag from iknityouknot. I fully admit that I hated working with the Euroflax, splitty and hard on the hands as it was. Hate the yarn, loved the pattern... super clear, easy, and without any of the flaws that previously made knitting a market-type bag something unfathomable to me (flaws like the big holes! The tiny straps digging into the shoulder! The LENGTH of the tiny straps! Ridiculous!).
I fit all my bicycle clothes and shoes in it while I was at the beach. For more photos of the beach, where Chris worked on evening out his extreme bicycle boy tan (and ended up a splotchy mess due to haphazard sunscreen application) and I even went in the surprisingly not-miserably-cold ocean, see Chris' photostream here.
