Beach babe

This weekend Florence got her first view of the sea and first experience of an English beach. It was a lovely day filled with our amazing friends, fish and chips in a cosy pub, coffee/ milk on the beach and hand knits put to good use on baby Florence.

Flo wore a suitably nautical navy and white striped jumper which I knitted back when I wasn’t sure if we were having a boy or a girl and a very cute hat which my mum whipped up for her. The hat is from Wee Woolly Toppers by Woolly Wormhead which I’m also using at the moment to make a cute hat called Cubba, one for Flo and one for her friend Harry, it will make them look like a pair at an autumn teddy bears picnic when they’re done!

When we arrived the first thing I saw was this cute little yarn shop called Buzz 4 Wool and Crafts which unfortunately was closed at the time. I thought it was worth a mention if you’re heading to the seaside and fancy some crafting on the beach.

I was a very special trip with Florence to see the sea for the first time. One we’ll remember forever.


  1. Wow! How wonderful for you all to spend time at the seaside. A lovely milestone to have achieved and some very special memories to treasure. x

  2. Awesome. I remember taking a trip out to Whitstable (and went in that lovely wool shop, cute, but very small and warm). That place likes the wool -- I even found a postcard that says "I heart Knitstable"!!

    Glad the first seaside adventure went well!

  3. I remember a pic of the jumper in your column it looks great on!
