Memorial weekend-quiet and calm!

This was the view from my deck Memorial Day weekend, Sunday morning. Just so beautiful. The day ended up in the 70s. Surely rates a top 10 for Oregon Coast weather. What you see is North Tenmile Lake......just a corner of it. It continues on like fingers. On the left is North Lake Campground. I think that campground has been there for more than 40 years.
Alot of company was on our property this weekend. but it was all relatives of my daughter-in-law and friends. They camped on the low part, next to the lake. They had a great time. John (husband) was in heaven running all the youngsters around the lake in the boat and laughing at the jokes that the young adults come up with. If that doesn't keep you young, nothing will!

Another great achievement this weekend is the completion of my zippered, hooded jacket. This pattern is the "sandy jacket" in Bonnie A Franz's book Double Exposure. This took about a year and a half to knit. Here is a picture of the version in Bonnie's book:

I took all of yesterday off and finished that sweater and took my nieces to the Harry Potter movie. (Wore my new sweater in that air conditioned theatre!!) Also worked on a Kid Seta scarf I'm hand knitting and a short sleeve jacket for one of my nieces on my LK150. I'll take pics of those later and post them here.
In the meantime, orders from the website are pilling up and I need to get started working.
It was a great weekend and if the fog lifts, today will be a great day too!

That hoodie is great! I love the colors. Thanks so much for your honest comments on my Rusted Root, I really appreciate them. I agree that the yellow isn't the best and I've gotten a milk chocolate shade for the next endeavor. Thanks for the suggestion! I think this color will be better.
