Like a lizard drinking

This week was unusually busy for me, and I didn't even have time to blog. I had some 7.30 starts and some 7.30 finishes and some going out at night. I'm not complaining at all and, while I didn't have time to post blog posts I did have time to do some knitting and some giving.

I finished my mother-in-law's hot water bottle cover. This was particularity good, because we went up to Ballarat on Friday night and she "hinted" that she'd love another bottle cover for the caravan, which allowed me to say "ah, that's lucky, hang on one second" and get it out for her. She was thrilled with it, so much so, that she's keeping it for the house and demoting the other one I made her to the caravan. I loved the pattern, which is a free pattern called Winterberry, and the yarn which is Miss Babs . Love, love love all her yarn.

I also cast on some sneaker liners using the left over yarns from my Sparkly Arrow. It was super fun, but I'm kind of over the afterthought heel I use on these. next pair I make I'm going to try the Fish Lips Kiss heel and see if that fits better and is less fiddly. 

If you are following along at home that's Tarragon's leg.
And then I cast on a pair of socks for Leon. Now I'm going to take a deep breath and collaps onto the couch for the rest of the weekend (Aside from CrossFit and lunch with my parents and cleaning the house and catching up with friends and, and, and. You know how it goes.)
 Have a great rest of the weekend!
