Feeling Renewed

I got a chance to get away on my own this weekend and it has left me feeling completely renewed. I had a little too much to drink for me to say I’m feeling “refreshed”, but having spent a full 24 hours away from the family has everyone appreciating each other a little bit more.

I was at a wedding in Emerald Lake, a spectacularly green lake nestled in the mountains of Yoho National Park, British Columbia. I had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the lake, equipped with rustic chairs that were begging for someone to come and knit in them. So I obliged. I didn’t have a lot of time between the hot-tubbing and getting ready for the ceremony, but I did manage to get a few rows done on P’s fair isle jacket. I am finding that being on the designing side of knitting leads to a lot more time sitting in front of my computer doing math and writing and less time knitting, but it’s rewarding in it’s own way. I was happy to be able to get all the required math done in order to do some actual knitting while away.

I’m going to need another weekend like that again soon!
