Sleeping Beauty and I went to AC moore to eyeball their wares, and it was just too hot to even LOOK at the yarn. The heatwave was not only messing with my workouts (that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!), but it made it almost impossible to cook or knit. I turned to the knitlist to get some ideas and got quite a few ranging from yarn type to making smaller items. As I told the list:
I’ve realized a few things:
1. I don’t have to ‘do it’ like the olden days. For some reason, I felt that if my grandma could survive the heat, I too could. WRONG.
2. I don’t ALWAYS have to knit. It’s hard to not knit, but when the weather creeps up to ‘h@ll’ levels, I can take a pass on pulling out my knitting.
3. There are portable items to knit, but again, if it’s too hot, take a pass.
4. Get up earlier in the day to take advantage of the coolness of morning. I did manage a few rows of the ribbon lace scarf from knitty.
5. Air conditioning is my friend.
The weather has returned to rain which, fortunately, is not miserable, but a welcome reprieve. So out comes a multitude of started, then abandoned products that I will happily work on today.
