Ocean Seeds

This past Saturday, I pretty much had my perfect summer day. After waking up at a not-too-unreasonable hour, I got together a beach bag, put some grilled veggie skewers and couscous into a cooler and jumped on the subway, meeting my friend Sharon in the first car of the Q train. She brought me a chair and we camped out on Brighton Beach for more than five hours, swimming in the surprisingly calm ocean and resisting the temptation to buy a homemade frozen cocktail that a bunch of people were selling (maybe next time). Later, after a quick shower and change, I jumped on the B68 and managed to grab a spot on the lawn at the Prospect Park Bandshell to catch The New Pornographers and knit some of my Rhinecliff pullover.

Getting into a free summer concert on a Saturday was enough of a coup, but the best part of that day was my time at the beach. Growing up 10 minutes from Jones Beach, the ocean just means summer to me. So, before it ends in the usual blur, here are some beach-inspired colors and patterns that have floated into the Indie Untangled Marketplace:
