I’ve just realized that I signed up for Knit the Classics, and never participated. Oops. So, I’ve vowed to actually participate. I nominated a few books for the next few months, and I’m looking forward to reading a few classics. If you’re not signed up, go and do so quickly– nominations for September, October and November end August 2nd!

Here’s my Saturday Sky:
As you can see, it was taken from inside,
where I stayed for most
of the day yesterday. It was HOT. Sure, not as hot as those of you with temperatures in the 100s, but it was still hot. It’s 81*F right now at 9:30 a.m., with 75% humidity. Yuck. Needless to say, I’ll be spending most of today inside too, I think.

Nothing like coming home from a long day of work to a big box of yarn just waiting to be squished and knit with. Here’s my Knitpicks order I received Thursday. I like the mainline yarn– I took a gamble ordering it, since I’d never knit with it before, but it lived up to my expectations. It’s smooth and soft, and will be great for a short sleeved pullover or camisole pattern. There’s actually 6 skeins of the green color, not three (the other 3 are hiding below). The Shamrock yarn is gorgeous, although a tad rough, but I was expecting that. The Swish superwash has a great feel to it– I may need to stock up on this one. It would be great for some heavy weight socks.

Marzi sums up what I want to do for the rest of the day, nap in the air conditioning.
