Well, we are back from our wonderful, quiet, fun, relaxing, short 4 day vacation in Death Valley. I guess it rained at home all weekend but, in Death Valley it was a perfect, beautiful 78 degrees fahrenheit. Anyhow, while I was gone I didn't fully get away from crafting, what would a vacation be with out a little bit of knitting. At least I could kint in the car on a 6 hour drive, right. I have always kind of liked long drives. Their relaxing. I remember as a kid driving up highway 395 oh so very often laying down across the front seat watching the reflections in the window. I never could totally sleep in the car. My sister would always be asleep in the back. Now, I can knit and drive to relaxing things together.

Well... sometimes. Here is what it can be like to knit in the car.

Or should I say more like this...

My yarn was all tangled so I had to un-do it and roll it into a ball. It was a bit bumpy at this point. After that, it went much more smoothly.

Here it is almost finished by the time we got there.

I finished that one then started another.

I'm thinking either this pink or a blue flower on this one.

 I almost finished the yellow one, I think it needs a tassel. The multicolored one is the one you saw earlier.

Here are a few more beanies Lacey wanted to model this morning.

These will become gifts or I can sell them. I really haven't decided yet.

Here are some past gifts to others.

Here are all the beanies I have on hand. I was thinking about making a bunch and going to a boutique or something. I have some other stuff I have made also that I am thinking about selling.

If you have any thoughts, feel free to comment.
