Summer Knitting

It is hot here......really, REALLY hot!!! Heat index is in the triple digit, humidity is 1% shy of rain....yet the sun shines!!

In other words.....it is like a sauna..truly!!

We went from Spring to Summer overnight!! UGH!! Needless to say, the AC is working overtime. I do NOT like to sweat...so the air is down to "ice cube" temps!!

I M.A.Y. have turned it a bit too low......poor Heidi....I found her wrapped in her favorite towel playing with her toy! If you look close....I believe she is sticking her tongue out at me...or perhaps licking the ice off her nose! LOL!!

I have competed the first Dash sock, knit with Koigu yarn and well underway on the second one.
I stopped the pattern at the beginning of the foot portion as I was afraid it would be too thick to wear with my shoes...but will definitely make a second pair in a lighter gauge yarn and continue the pattern to the toe.

Sock for the Hubby...who was complaining that I had knit myself WAYYY more socks than I had for him.

Wah, wah, wah!!

Last but not least: I made a quick peak at the nest in the fern and was surprised to see very active baby birds!! The pic is a bit fuzzy....didn't take time to adjust the shutter speed, just snapped.

What a vision of sweet uglies!! LOL!!

I am still driving to the Post Office daily to pick up my mail as the wrens are still in residence in the mailbox.

Men are so whiny. lol. I've got my air down, too. My cats seem fine with it...and it's a good thing, too :-)

Nice socks! It's a bit cooler here this week. It's actually cool late at night and in the mornings. Baby birds are so ugly until they get all of their feathers.

Poor Heidi! Does she have icicles hanging off her tail?

We had one heck of a crazy day yesterday. Family visiting, doctor's appointments, and dogsitting. Pardon me while I turn into a vegetable today. lol

Heidi is such an expressive cat! You always know exactly how she feels. I love the little birds, how much fun for you. :D

Poor Heidi, not. I don't like to sweat either, but it's been raining here for what ... 20 days now. In the 60s ... which I don't mine, but WET. I'm sick of wet & cloudy. Ahhhh, sorry I just need some sun. At least it's cool enought to KNIT.

My house is an ice box too, and I STILL get hot! Your knitting looks great!
