Saturday was a weird day. While we had sunny skies,
it was hot and humid. You could really FEEL the heat like a weight on your shoulders. So what did I do? I stayed inside and played with wool! Even that took a while to make me feel good. I avoided my sock
and my sweater since I'm at areas that require thinking. So instead I cast on for some mindless knitting.
There is a group on Ravelry that is collecting 7" squares for blankets that will eventually be sent to Warm Woolies. So I did one for them.
This is the same Lion Wool I used for the Children in Common socks, plus a tan wool from the stash. Then I decided to cast on for another vest.
Still the same Lion Wool except this time I'm using some Paton's black wool. It's amazing how the same yarn paired with a different color produces three different looks.
By the end of the night, I had organized a pile of patterns for scarves I want to make and another pile of patterns for kid projects. I pulled out some of the yarn I want to use, plus 3 different yarns for my next pair of socks. PLUS I ended up watching 3 hours of Comedy Central which made a BIG difference in my funk. Thank you George Lopez and Jeff Dunham! If you can check out Jeff Dunham, I recommend it. His characters of Walter and Akmed the Terrorist are HYSTERICAL!
As long as I have the fan and the a/c, I'm a happy camper.
