On to chapter two...

So.. the other thing I like doing during a heat wave (other than making jam)....
Knitting with wool! Of course, it is only sport weight, and the house is air conditioned, so it's not as bad as it seems.  And as you can see - the body is done! Yaaaaaaaaaaay!

I've picked up the stitches for the right sleeve and managed to get a few rows done before bedtime tonight. As written, the pattern has 3/4 length sleeves with colourwork at the wrists. I'm leaving out the colourwork and going full length on this one. Luckily, after knitting the body all in one piece -those sleeves are just going to fly by!


PS ... according to tracking - my shoes should be delivered today!!!!

Yay for being done the boring body. The sleeves will fly. Now let's all put our minds together and think cool thoughts. I am so over summer right now. It's like a steam bath outside. Ugh...
