Heat Jet Lag

Fall 2009 issue

We woke up to nearly normal temperatures this morning, but I feel like I have heat jet lag. Is there such a thing? When the Fall Interweave Knits issue arrived in the mailbox yesterday, I almost couldn’t look at it because the photo on the front made me feel even hotter. I did browse it anyway. While laying on the sofa. And dreaming of colder weather. Yesterday it was 98°F outside and 84°F inside. (Wednesday’s temps 104 outside, 81 inside) Puh. Still too hot for my preferences.

I started another pair of Seduction Socks for myself.  So to not have an exact matching pair as my best friend, I am knitting them in blue. Then I realized that I goofed on the cuff stitch on her pair and didn’t quite follow the pattern. Ooops!  To give the pattern it’s due diligence, I knit the cuff as it should be on my pair. But I think I like the mistake cuff on hers better. No, I’m not going to rip mine back and redo it.  And for the inquiring minds, I made her cuff a 2 row repeat and the pattern makes it a 4 row repeat.

Well… today is another day. I’ve reserved some time on the rental quilting machine at the Quilter’s Garden this morning. Have a cool and relaxing weekend. More Recycled Clothing Quilt goodness next week!

    Your socks are looking great! I got the Knits magazine yesterday, and I’m loving some things in there – especially that wrap! I think I’m going to have to make it.

    If it makes you feel any better, when it gets into the 100’s here (in OKC), I set my A/C to 80 – to conserve and because I was told a long time ago that it was better for the unit not to be running all of the time. Don’t know if it is true, but it does make sense.

    I also discovered that wearing a swimsuit and going out for an occasional dip in the pool to cool off meant that the A/C set any lower was too cold when I got back in!

    Gorgeous socks!
    Happy quilting and knitting and trying to stay cool. 🙂

    I sure know how you feel, Anita! Here in Everett it was 98 in the house at 11pm on Wed night! I haven’t done a darned thing all week – just don’t have an ounce of energy – thank goodness we are in the 70’s today! Thanks for the link to the HQ rental – I didn’t know about that!

    Ugh, it has been too hot too sew! I’m impressed that you were knitting! I’m hoping for some lovely summery but not so hot weather next week!

    You have my greatest sympathy sweating through the hot weather. It gets over 100 degrees F on a regular basis here in Perth. I hibernate and do lots of craft….

Go ahead, say something...
