I am. I can only stand temperatures between 60 and 80 degrees, and even then only with controlled humidity. Anything hotter I wilt; anything colder I freeze. I swear I spend half my life bitching about the weather in the Midwest. Arizona oh how I miss you! I officially can not wait for our Midwest Summer to be over. Funny thing, I checked the blog archives and this is about the point where I started kvetching about the weather last summer 🙂
I usually title my posts with the title of the project I’m featuring but some how Scarf w/edging 21 &; insertion 25 pg 100 didn’t seem very exciting. I love Victorian Lace Today but they could use some real help on naming the projects. This is my first official lace project. I used Paton’s Grace, which I’m really pleased with. I love the pattern and lace knitting in general. I really enjoyed working on this once I got the pattern down. This pattern calls for a larger yarn so I thought Grace would work, but it’s probably a little big for it, which is why it’s so much wider. But I do like the Grace yarn, I know I’m probably not supposed to but hell, I can’t afford silk and cashmere every time and this is a nice cheap yarn that’s pretty.
The scarf is wider and not as long as the pattern. I’ve turned to put the wide end boarder on and it should be done soon. Then I just need to figure out how I’m gonna block this thing! 🙂
Please ignore my expression, it’s hard to take photos of yourself on your front porch at 6:30 am when your neighbors are going by thinking you’re a nut job. Plus I had to bend down to be in line with the camera. Note to self – teach dogs to operate camera.
