I take a month off from drinking every year and always make myself a little token to help keep me focused. I’m not a heavy drinker but I work in theatre so social drinking becomes a big part of the job. It’s nice to take a break. I usually end up losing weight and getting better sleep, too.
Anyway, this year I made myself a little friendship bracelet (possibly because they remind me of summer which Chicago has abandoned in favor of Forever-Winter). It’s in a modified chevron pattern in which the colors are staggered, creating a braided look. I really love this color combination, too.
