Annual yarn sale today

I got up suuuuper early for a Saturday morning (6:30). The tiger proclaimed me nuts and pulled the duvet over his eyes.

But it was sooooo worth it. I came home with the yummiest Handmaiden seasilk  and Fleece Artist lace imaginable, some really nice Lucy Neatby sockyarn, a cool, breezy bamboo for summer knitting and my coveted Berroco Seduce at half price. Of course I couldn’t wait to start a scarf with the latter, even though I’m in the middle of a test knit. Baaaad. girl.

26°C – showers

The slightly cooler weather has brought back the knitting joy, and I decided to do another test knit. A cowl this time, in two-color double knitting. A technique I’ve been wanting to learn for a while now. The start went well, then I read a chart wrong and had to tink 1,5 rounds, but now I’m on my way again. I have to concentrate, but it’s not as impossible as I feared.

30°C – sun and clouds

Just took my Noro shawl off the blocking pins and thought I’d share a picture:

Still hot

Though it rained for 5 minutes around 8:30 pm, which dropped the temp two or three degrees and upped the humidity by a factor of 2. I don’t think we can call that a win:win situation. The good news is, I’m slowly getting used to heat and feel less dead. Our fingerless mitten swap was today – hilarious show to see people try to model their woollen mittens on sweaty arms and then pull them off stat after the picture was taken. All the mittend were awesome, and I absolutely adore the pair I was given. Too bad I’ll have to wait half a year before I can use them. Can’t wait for the next swap. This was fun.
