Why do we go back to Sunriver year after year? Besides the sun, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

What crafts did I actually attempt to finish while I was away? I took 3 different knitting projects and spent time working on all of them, but not as much as I anticipated. During the 8 hour drive south I knit on a hat for Little G for next winter. Discovered that I did not have enough yarn to finish it in the blue color, so it's on hold until I stash dive for some more Cascade 220 in a coordinating color. I am making up the pattern as I go along. I think it's going to turn out on the big side which might mean that I need to knit him another hat for next winter and either gift this one to someone else, give it to big sis, or just save it until he grows. Not a biggie.

Last, but not least, I am trying to finish up my 2nd Powder River Cowl. The first was for my dad's wife, this one's for me. It's Tosh Merino Light in the Vulga colorway (purpley-gray). This cowl has great texture and I know I'll love it! Um yeah, because I knit one already and had to give it away.
