Knitting by the Ocean

Since attending Vogue Knitting last weekend, we’ve been creating new products. We met StevenBe and bought some of his fabulous yarn. He’s very personable and generous. We binge-watched all his shows. Steven is amazing and if you’re visiting Minneapolis, Minnesota, make sure to visit his shop!

Del Mar

“The ocean is a mighty harmonist.” -William Wordsworth

We attended an oral history conference in Del Mar to learn new methodology, present our research, and enjoy the natural splendor of the area. Bing Crosby wrote the song “Where The Turf Meets The Surf” for the local race tracks. It’s certainly a charming town with a Hollywood history. We recommend that you visit the 1928 Powerhouse Community Center which is on the Historic Highway 101.

You can learn more at the local historical society and listen to the resident voices with their ongoing oral history project.

The Sea

“The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides. The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love and emotion; it is the Living Infinite.”
-Jules Verne, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
