Yum! I’m eating a peach while I’m writing so I’m going to have to pause a few times while I write this to keep the juice off my keyboard!

It’s those perfect days of summer over here – the Farmer’s Markets are bursting with fruits and vegetables – I saw a virtual field of flowers in Daley Plaza yesterday – bucket after bucket of zinnia’s – just breathtaking. No camera in hand, but it was so beautiful and bountiful it’s right before my eyes…

The loveliness of the weather continues here as well – softer, cooler temperatures – making knitting all the more COMFORTABLE! Who can work on wool (!) when the HEAT is making your skin crawl with little clammy skid marks? Even with air conditioning it creeps up on me and all of a sudden my hands are overheated and approaching meltdown. EEEwwww…

Enter the Cotton Ribby – I’ve been working on this for quite awhile – it’s the Mobile Bus Knitting of choice right now (the other cotton stuff, alas, is sidelined – who knows when it’s going to be done?). I want my Ribby!

It will be very soon that I can wear this as my work jacket – back, one front, and one sleeve are done. I have half a sleeve done and the right front and collar to go. This one is going to have a button band too – I cheerfully found buttons in the stash to go well with the Brown I’m adding to an elongated collar. The buttons are dark olive – almost brown but still in line with the green tone of the body.

Maybe if I finish this, the cooler weather will land for good and the Real Knitting can begin. Can’t you just smell the Sweater Weather???
