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.

Black Lace Scarf

Finished the test knit. Bit of a boring knit in the middle there, but with the 12 row repeat still not quite mindless enough to do it blindly. I don’t know if I’d do it again, but I do like the way it turned out, so all’s well that ends well.

And I’m now free to start on my swap mitts. I have the tiger’s permission to use the left-over yarn from the dead fish hat, so they’ll be orange and brown.

for fingerless gloves/mittens today. Good thing though that the swap isn’t until the end of June, ’cause I still have a test knit for a lace scarf to finish. I should really pace myself a bit better.
