.... but he was right.
The air conditioners are on. It's hot and sticky and it's suppose to stay that way for a couple of days at least... hopefully it will all end in a spectacular thunderboomer!
Meanwhile, I'm inside with the air cranked and knitting.You haven't seen any progress, but early on last week I cast on for Dad's second F-day sock. On the weekend, I managed to reach and finish the heel. I should be pressing forward with F-Day only a few weeks away, but I got a little distracted.
You'll remember that yarn we dyed that knit up like this:Well on the weekend we tweaked the formula a little (same colours, different amounts) and it now looks like this:I just had to see what it looked like knit up - so I set aside Dad's sock and cast on for a pair of Undines. So much better! The colour is Mermaid's Treasure and there is one skein in the shop.
Want to see what else we dyed?These won't be in the shop until after the weekend, as we are taking them to the show on Saturday. What ever is left will go up in the shop.
Oh, I also got one other thing off the needles - Friday night I cast off the latest shawl!
It's blocking at Mom's, but I should have the pattern ready in a couple of weeks. You may remember that is was purple - but I decided to overdye it with red - it's a much deeper red than the pic shows, and it's a nice big shawl - more than 60 inches wide!
Holy Canolies - I've been a busy girl!
