This week it's Tie-Dye, Pincushions and Camo (don't forget the books!)
I don't know if it's hot where you are, but in north central Massachusetts the mercury has blasted through the top of the thermometer and the humidity is residing consistently in the "tropical" zone. As far as I'm concerned this weather is inappropriate for anything except exotic plants and certain members of the animal kingdom. Humans (especially this one) not included!
At our house we have one air conditioner. It's centrally located in the dining/living room and we gather around it in hopes of maintaining some margin of sanity. So far so good, yet I question how long we (my family and the A/C) can hold out!
The one thing that the heat has not stopped me from doing is starting new projects. It must be some sort of condition that I suffer from that causes me to thrive on juggling multiple tasks . It's not just in the crochet world, but in the book world too, as I always have at least two novels and one audio book going as well as the reviews that are in the works. It used to worry me, now I just go with it! Eventually things get done, and those that don't must not have been that interesting anyway.
Turns out I never did get to that Yarn Along post. I will tell you that the book, The Sisters Brothers is a quirky delight. It's a western set in the 1800's and the main characters are outlaws. But truly they are the most endearing hired guns you're likely to ever encounter! Good reading if you like off-beat humor and unconventional sentence structure.
There is one more project that I've been toiling with this week - Hats. Specifically for the My Mountain project (more on that soon!) I'm working on some designs that combine my favorite granny square and doily components with traditional cloche styles. I finished one that's good, just not perfect - yet... but don't you worry, I'll be sure to show you what I come up with!
So that's what's in my project bag today. How about you? What do you like to work on when the temperature hits broil? I'd love to hear how you stay cool. I was also wondering how many of you work on multiple projects simultaneously. And if you do, what's your secret for getting them finished?!
Thanks so much for stopping by and spending a bit of your day with me.
