It has been very hot here the past few days. So hot that I haven't been spending much time on the computer. However, I have been doing some knitting. My package from the UK arrived, and I have been winding yarn for the fearless fairisle sweater that Wendy has designed. My swatch is three quarters done. I have figured out how to hold one strand of wool in each hand, so I am using the swatch to get a little more comfortable with this. But, as I do this, I am reminded that I still hate swatching! Anyway, I hope to cast on the sweater tomorrow afternoon. I am knitting in the purple colourway that Wendy is also knitting. It was a toss up between purple and blue. Purple won this time. :-) I am also knitting this with Addi Turbos. I hate knitting with circular needles and I know that the major reason is the join on the cheaper needles. I hope these work well.

I also cast on a sweater for Maryssa tonight. This one is a short sleeved summery sweater out of Sirdar Snuggly Domino DK in the 760 vibrant pink. Maryssa once again picked the yarn first. She calls it her pom-pom yarn. It is quite a lively colour, but she is a lively kid, so it will suit her. And I am trying to push myself to put in 10 rounds a day on my mystery sock. I should have the leg long enough tomorrow, so I can start the other sock. It is turning out well, but is rather boring to knit. I might take it with me to church. Since I sit in the back, I often work on the mindless small knitting during the sermon. (I usually remember the message better that way!)

Well, my brain is fried. I need a shower and bed. I am so glad that my bedroom is in the basement!

Have a happy!

These are my newest feet warmers! Yes, I do have long feet. I wear a size 12. These are knit from the toes up, with heel directions by KyleAnn Williams. They were pretty easy and fun to knit. I knit 4 rows of plain knitting after the 15 rows of rib, just to give me something different. Now they are all ready and waiting for tomorrow when I get to break them in! Yippee!

Knitting Haikus Some of these are a hoot! I especially like this one:

I hide my yarns from his eyes
I must go buy more.

I think Carolyn knows my husband! :-)
