I bound off the Vodka Gimlet sweater last week, gave it a little steam block, and wore it all weekend.
LOVE! It fits perfectly and it so versatile. We had an overnight trip and this sweater was with me the entire time. Great with jeans as well as over a nice blouse.
Our impromtu overnight trip was such fun. We rented a car and drove down to look at vacation houses. We are having a small family reunion this summer and found a very swanky house that is big enough to sleep us all.
The house has great views, just enough grounds for the kids to have adventures, and a gourmet kitchen. The next best thing to being at home.
We spent the night at the Columbia Gorge Hotel. A beautiful building built in 1904. It has great history and I love that the steamboat captain would blow its whistle once for each guest the hotel could expect. That way the rooms were ready and waiting.
The view from our rooms was perfect.
This summer vacation comes right at the height of erry (cherry, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry...) season and we will be be staying in the heart of erry farms. I am wondering if I should brings empty jars and my big pot?
