Feeling HOT!

19 Jul

WOW!! Today is cooler than yesterday, but still really hot!

I soooo feel for all of those in the midwest US, where they have been under this hot, humid weather influence for the past few weeks. I saw coverage on the news last night of lakes that have just dried right up – unbelievable!

I am writing this from the office/store today, where my knitting has been sitting at my feet for most of the day. Due to the heat the amount of foot traffic has been down this week, so as all my other paperwork, and government stuff is caught up, thought it best to bring a pair of socks with me. Isn’t it always the case that when you bring knitting, you never get to it?? I am heading home shortly, so will be working on my Skyp Socks and others tonight.

Burgers on the barbie, and a whole lotta fluid heading in my direction….it is to feel like 46 celcius here by Thursday, I can’t say I ever remember it being that hot!

Hope that you are staying cool where you are! Happy Knitting!


I mean…really??!!

It’s not really that difficult to type up a blog posting…I think it is more the difficulty of coming up with the right wording, or the right way to say the obvious??

I have been absent from blogging for soooo long. I keep saying that I will get into the groove again, but then…fail!

I am still LOVING my knitting, not quite sure what I would do without it in my life now. I have a great knitting group, where we all support each others yarn habit!

In recent weeks, I have been on a shawl blitz — I have completed Wendy’s Mystery Shawlette:

Mystery Shawlette

This knit was really fun, I goofed near the beginning — see, you can see the error right down the middle line….but by the time I noticed it, I was waaaaay up, and wasn’t going to tink it back. I kept up with the weekly clues, so was able to finish it rather quickly. It now sits on the back of my yarn room chair, as you can see in the picture, but I am not sure why I put it there…perhaps just for a bit of pretty??

I have also completed Aecor – this pattern was very new when I purchased it, and I don’t usually go for patterns on Rav. where I can’t see what the results have been, but this one struck a chord, and voila!


I also completed Daybreak, which I started last August, and Summer Flies, AND Shaelyn!! I would recommend all of them, Summer Flies and Shaelyn were rather quick lace knits.

Currently I am working on Cozy from Knitty, Simple Skyp Socks and Summer Wind.

It is SUPER-HOT here at the moment, the only place to be is in the air conditioning! I hope that wherever you are, you are cool, and enjoying YOUR knitting – I would love to hear what you are working on!!
