beer sweaters

now, i may not knit for my chickens but i will knit sweaters for beer bottles. i have a beer lovin, fellow piscean friend with a birthday coming up this week-what a better gift than a beer cozy!!! free pattern found here. this is a fun and fast gift idea-easy to knit too-if you can handle cables and double pointed needles.yea! it's done! while i'm on the subject of beer-i have just found a new store bought favorite(hubby's are the best!)-from weed, california.gotta love the bottle cap-liam and i have spent the last few days sprinkling the property with native wild california poppy seeds-in hopes of a colorful spring-let's hope the chickens don't find these delectable tidbits!!today we've had a true wild and crazy spring day-sun, rain, hail and bits of snow flurries-spring is definitely close. the other evening we had the most spectacular sunset. the picture doesn't do it justice-the pinks were more shocking and the lavenders below the pinks were so much more intense!!!!! but this gives you an idea:

ooooh, that picture makes me so homesick! what a beautiful spot. i printed out the instructions for the beer cozy, as i have been looking for some small project to attempt cables. thanks for the link! your beer cozy really shows off the cables with the yarn you used. happy belated birthday as we near the end of the piscean cycle...be sure to get in more celebration while you can!

Sweet sunset pic. We had a spectacular one a couple of days ago too. There was an immense black cloud flying over and the sun hit Jones Ridge in front of us and turned it a brillian chartreuse. We watched for a couple of minutes and then it was gone!

I spent the night in Weed about ten years ago. In fact, I have a T-shirt that says Weed Mercantile Mall, Est. 1901, Weed, California. I'm sure the shirt has outlasted the store. Love the bottle cap~
