I know it’s cliched, but holy cow do I need a vacation after my vacation. I’m still exhausted, even though it’s been almost a week since we got back.
I think it must be a combination of the following:
- Too much traveling- a full day of air travel to get to the Midwest followed by a full day of driving to make it up north, and the same thing in reverse to go back. (Plus all the driving we did over the week there. I forgot how far apart everything is in the country!)
- I was surprised to discover that the part of the UP we were visiting was in the Eastern Time Zone, three hours behind Seattle. I spent the whole week trying desperately to get on local time and failing miserably. Now I’m back here, but I think my brain is still somewhere between Eastern and Pacific time. I’m a mess!
- I picked up some nasty stomach bug somewhere on my trip back home, and I can’t for the life of me shake it. I won’t give you the details, because ew… but suffice it to say that I’ve felt better.
Basically, all I want to do is snuggle up in some cozy knits and go into hibernation.
Let’s play the “what Allison wishes she had in her closet” game. (I’m too sleepy to start any new projects right now… it’s that bad!)
I know this is a men’s sweater but man, I’d totally wear this. I love the slightly variegated/tonal yarn and the cowl-like collar.

Cozy Cable Cowl by Purl SohoBut really, this is what I want to wear right now. It’s coziness personified… It’s halfway between a cocoon and a sweater (actually, it might be closer to a cocoon than a sweater). I love the thick textured fabric, and the thigh-length oversized silhouette. It would take about three pounds of yarn to make a sweater of this style for someone my height, but I think it might just be worth it.
