What next?

I have time for one more lace project before it gets cooler and I go back to sweaters. I couldn't make up my mind, so I let my fellow Knitwits decide for me. They chose one I had already started plus the next project after that I am to work on. What you see here is the 1st of 8 repeats - so it is 1/8th done already. No border either, yeah.. What would we do with out our friends and enablers?

Days are back in the upper 90's again so I put the air on. Makes it a bit easier to knit that way.

drying time..

The Shetland tea shawl is done and blocked. It is supposed to be circular, but I'm not good at getting things round. When my blockers come it, I will re-do it so it looks better. It isn't perfect, but at least it is done and nobody will really notice the mistakes (I hope)

If it is dry, I'll bring it to show my fellow Knitwits tonight when we meet.

boiling points...

Well, the weather has finally reached the point where I turned on the air conditioner. After spending 2 days out in 90+ degree weather, I decided I couldn't stand it anymore and turned on the air today. It is one of those window ones so it doesn't do the best job, but it is better than nothing.

Erik is VERY happy with my decision as he kept laying in front of the fridge every time I opened the door (think he was hinting at something)

Anyway, it is still too hot to knit on anything.

After talking with my mom's half brother who is an art professor and artist living in the Detroit area today, I realized I had several sweaters that I have not posted on my picturetrail. The socks are all there now as are the sweaters.

Still working on the border of the Shetland Tea Shawl, but I am about half way done

Happy 4th

I can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon than grilling out with the friends. Friday night found the Knitwits up late knitting away at Amy's house, then back to her house again today for the festivities.

Now, if the ice cream would just get finished turning, I could have another desert (already had ice cream and apple crisp at the picnic - yum) Oh well, I have my knitting to keep me busy until then.
