I spell it 23C/73F.
I'm no longer overheated and cranky. I am irritated though. Why? Well, I'm getting married on September 16. Nothing elaborate. Just a simple, "yeah, I do, now let's party" kinda ceremony. I am gonna look pretty wearing this...
Yep, I decided to make another Diamond Fantasy shawl in plain white with pretty glistening beads.
I am still going to the Waterloo Knitter's Fair. Woot!
So, what's irritating me, you ask?
Well you see, I found something rather perturbing in my mailbox last week. It was a letter from the attorney general...stating I had been chosen to be a part of a jury panel...on August 28th. I don't mind doing my duty. Again. This is my second time. The first I was lucky enough to be chosen for a minor case and it only lasted the one day. Oh, and I can't knit there!! Lord have mercy. Let's hope this time is just as easy. Please, please, please, pray that it goes well so I can attend my own wedding. *sigh*
Anyway, last week was hot. I was cranky. I didn't knit much. So, what does a knitter do when they can't knit because of the stinking hot, mind-numbing, bone-melting, skin-scorching, hair-frizzing, heat won't let them?
Shop, of course.
Ahhhh, the beauty of online shopping. Reclining in my chair, not moving anything but my index finger while I click myself to ecstasy.
I clicked myself the Mason Dixon book. Gotta make some of those ballband dishcloths and the log cabin blanket.
I clicked myself this pretty Kilimanjaro Kat shawl from The Knitter.com. I plan to make this for my sister...whom we all call Kat.
Lastly, since I was already shopping at the Knitter.com, I had to get a ball of Trekking XXL. I chose the #78 [shades of purple] colourway.
I hope those of you that have been suffering this awful heat are getting some relief. Stay cool and avoid the attorney general.
Keep On Knitting...
