Well, it's been a busy week. Hot, Hot, and some more hot. But we have perservered, and made a little progress. I thought it was time to get back to my Winter Sunset Cardigan, and at least knit on it for 1 or 2 hours a day if I can. This is what I came home to on Thursday.
Isn't he looking so innocent and cute! Mr. Tibbs just has no control when it comes to wool. I mean I can't blame him, but does he have to leave me such a mess to untangle.
So, most of my afternoons this week have consisted of coming home (after working outside in the heat and humidity), having a shower and sitting on the back deck with a beer and my knitting. You ask how could I possibly knit in this heat, but we have a covered deck, and throw in a few late afternoon thundershowers and then some wonderful breezes plus toss in the lastest episode of "Cast On", and life just couldn't get any better for me.
Well, maybe a few more skeins of yarn to top it off.
I'm half way through the second sleeve of Julie's Aran.
My friend Samantha is looking for squares for an afghan for a family friend, so I whipped up a couple I found in Sally Melville's book 3,. I mailed them off yesterday , but don't tell her it's a surprise. I didn't tell her I was making some. I even threw in a crocheted one.
Sally has a really neat pattern for the mitered square, and used it in a jacket design. She also did the log cabin block that everyone is talking about.
These are the new stitch markers I made this week.
And last but not least I leave you with dumb dog picture. I don't understand what her fasination with standing on the table is. Doesn't look too bright to me!
