Cozying up with the Q.

7 08 2007

I am so excited that Summer is almost over!! Really it is my least favorite season, I hate being hot and Oklahoma is very, very hot, sticky and unbearable in August. I feel for all the golf pros here right now for the PGA. We are under severe heat warnings the whole week. UGH!!

——————————————————————————————–

After looking at what I had in my queue and considering my new goals and feelings about my knitting I decided to start over. I had a blast browsing patterns and projects in Ravelry looking for those that would bring me the enjoyment I’ve been missing so much lately. Well it’s done! I may add one or two more when the winter IK comes out but only if they whisper sweet nothings in my ear, in French. :p So feel free to click on the Queue tab at the top of the blog to see what I’ll be up to. πŸ˜‰

To start with I cast on yesterday for a lace scarf using feather and fan. I’m knitting it with some gorgeously soft superwash merino sock yarn in the Marrakesh colorway from Fearless Fibers. I’ve had it for several months now and was stressing because I could not match it up with the perfect sock pattern. Ha! It was surely snickering at me the whole time, knowing instinctively it was lace yarn darling, not sock yarn. It’s generous yardage was not meant to be trod underfoot but to be blocked and displayed in all it’s glorious beauty. That’s what I get for buying such sophisticated yarn. πŸ˜‰ I am really enjoying knitting something besides my standard summer sock fare.

Wow, I LOVE the color!! It’s going to be stunning.

I hate the heat, too! I was trying to knit on my Mystery Stole outside with the kids and had to stop–the yarn wouldn’t move along my sweaty fingers. ICK!!!
