I have just one thought continually on my mind.
Hot. It's so hot.
Sometimes there are curse words involved, but really, it's miserable and sticky and gross. Just typing is making me break a sweat. Our two little air conditioners are not making hardly a dent in the temperature in the house - which right now is 85 degrees according to my clock - at all. And of course we can't run them both at once, or run one with any other major appliance or the fuse blows. I turn the downstairs one on in the afternoon and the upstairs one goes on all night. I feel like I haven't slept decently since mid-June.
I got all Scarlett O'Hara-y talking with a friend yesterday at the cell phone store, ending my rant with "As God is my witness, I'll never live without central AC again!!".
So, yeah. HOT.
It makes total sense, then, that I did this:
Sat my butt down on scalding hot flagstones wearing thick wool socks! But hey, it's been so long since I finished a project, it was worth it.
Yarn: Twisted Fiber Arts Duchess, color - Warlock
Pattern: some kind of squiggly rib from one of my stitch dictionaries
I started these back in December and thank goodness I knit them two at at a time. I really like the way the rib pattern looks but it was not fun to knit. I'm sure if I'd done one sock at a time I never would have wanted to knit the second one. Or it's just possible that I have no patience for patterns anymore and I want to knit plain and fast.
I'm gonna go stick my head in the freezer for a while.
