It's too bloody hot to make any progress on any project I'm working on. So, the Sirdar Yo-Yo Pullover is on hold until this heatwave blows over. There is nothing worse than sweaty hands making your yarn squeak on the needles. Yuck!
I did finish up my Dipsy-Doodle scarf. Fat chance you'll see me posing wearing this for a pic in this heat, but here is my 2 a.m. shot of it.
Pattern: Dipsy-Doodle U-Turn Scarf
Designer: Maureen Mason-Jamieson
Yarn/Colour:: Paton's Kroy - 1.5 balls Winter Eclipse and 1 ball Muslin
Comments: This was a great knit. Very enjoyable.
Since the only other project besides the Yo-Yo pullover I have on the needles is a sock, I decided to start my Seascape shawl using Alpaca Cloud from Knitpicks. So far, I'm really enjoying the Alpaca Cloud. Not as nice as Zephyr by Jaggerspun, but it's a totally different animal. [g] I just started tonight and managed to finish the first chart, so I'm pretty confident that it'll be perfect heatwave knitting.
My apologies to my blogger friends for not keeping up to date in reading your blogs, but when my computer thermometer reads 105.0F, you kinda take the hint that it's just too hot to even blog or comment. I shall visit soon. Until then,
Keep On Knitting...
Happy Victoria Day
