Beachy Keen

What do you get when you combine sunny Southern California, a tanned blond bombshell and a pasty white brunette, both with a passion for knitting?

For any of you who frequent Julia's blog, you've probably already seen a rendition of this picture. That's a lazy Sunday afternoon at a beach in Ventura. Leo, Panda and I dragged Julia through a dreadful cafe in Malibu then miles away to a fairly remote beach to lunch and knit.

Personally, I can't think of a nicer way to spend an afternoon. Panda ran herself ragged catching the squirrel and being pursued by an amorous little scraggly dog who wouldn't take "no" for an answer.

I have named him, Pepe Le Poodle. This isn't the best picture but I was being a bad picture taker and spent all my time knitting instead of getting great photos for my blog. Baaaaad blogger. Anyway, that's Pepe, behind Miss Bear.

Julia and I chatted and knitted away, and the day just seemed to fly by. I have a touch of color (that'd be red, of course) after the adventure, but I'm no worse for the wear.

In other news, because you asked, I went ahead and threw "Vern" (the WyVERN dragon) onto some Cafepress stuff.

There's a whole bunch more over at the store.

If it looks like people really like ol' Vern, I'll add more. It didn't even occure to me when I drew him that folks would want to wear him, I just thought he'd be fun to draw. All the better though.
