I just got back from a trip to San Diego with my husband and his family. We ate a lot of good food, drank a lot of good beer, and generally had too much fun. (I’m a little crispy around the edges, even though I spent half my time applying and re-applying sunscreen. I guess that’s what happens when you take a white girl from Seattle and put her on a beach in southern California.)
We spent the week beach combing, (attempting to) body surf, and generally being beach bums. And as nice as the weather was in the daytime (70s and 80s-sorry everyone in the Great White North!), the evenings got quite chilly. You need a sweater at night in San Diego.
Luckily, I specialize in sweaters. Let’s take a look at some beach-appropriate sweaters that I will definitely be knitting before my next trip south.
This light pullover would be perfect for wearing on your morning walk, sipping coffee and examining the beach for treasures that washed up overnight.

And this is the sweater I want to wear while sitting around a campfire on the beach, listening to the waves and looking at the stars.
