Vacation Week!

Woot! I'm on vacation this week!

Work was becoming really overwhelming and I was waking up tired every day so I so need a break.

I spent 3 days at my brother-in-law's family cabin up near Mount Lassen, which was about 40 yards from a beautiful lake. I didn't want to leave, it was so peaceful up there.

I'm spending a lot of time working on my knitting projects. I'm getting really good at knitting little tubes. Here is something that I finished up for a beer buddy of mine:

I know it's a bit silly, but he actually asked for one out of the blue. Speaking of blue, I just completed a blue and black cozy for another friend who independently asked for one too (he even found me a pattern).

Can't say I have done a lot of running this week. I didn't do any runs at the cabin--unless you count chasing after my niece and nephew. I did a trail hike/run yesterday and will do another one today. I've got to get in gear, I feel my belly growing on me!

OH....I also want to say that you guys are the best! I haven't blogged in a month and couldn't believe I even had 1 comment when I came back from the cabin. I guess I must keep posting.

Please note that the cozy will work on a bottle of Mike's Hard Lemonade too.

Dinner was great. The cats are adorable.

Come back to work please. ;-)

That little knitted tube, it's not for the beer to stay warm, is it?

Whatever its purpose, it looks like surrealist art.

I was just thinking the other day that I should learn how to knit. It just seems like something a person ought to know how to do. Do you find it relaxing?

You've had two friends ask for beer bottle cozy's--maybe there's a need! You could start selling them at craft shows. :-)
