summer temperatures came so quickly, when i started this hat it was still freezing at night (less than 2 weeks ago). now we've got our windows open at night while we wear t-shirts and hear the insects chirping away. somehow every year we skip spring and jump right into summer, or what else would you call 82 degrees F (almost 28 C)?
i made a blue hat for a little friend of mine a few months ago, and since she wears it all the time, she needs to get an additional color for variety. white seemed like a good color especially for this time of year. i am planning on crocheting and attaching a pink flower and green leaves, which inspired me to take a picture of the w.i.p. in the middle of our azalea blossoms.
so let's see what you've got this week, sylvia!
embarrassing: there is almost zero progress on my milo vest for the junebug :( i'm partly blaming that on the fact that it is impossible for me to read and knit at the same time, and really wanted to finish When God Was a Rabbit last week - which i did. i loved the book, loved the positive, optimistic tone it had plus that bit of whimsy and magic that the authour managed to weave in - a good read!
now i started another book that danielle left here for me (she has great taste, that girl!), Where'd You Go, Bernadette? I am about 70 pages far and immensely enjoying the book. it is funny and i managed to get into the story fairly quickly ... actually i am wanting to finish this post to get back to it!!
joining ginny again this week. what are you knitting/crocheting and reading?
