It is so hot here in Chicago, as I am sitting in my fully air-conditioned house, the place where my back meets the chair is screaming for MERCY!
We are the Land of the BIG Shoulders here and not built to be citizens of the Land of Hella…
Yesterday, while shooting pictures of the twin demons ASPHALT/CONCRETE (oh yeah, talk about yer basic Heat Sponges), my face turned beet red. OVERLOAD! Red Alert! I have drank (grammar?) so much water in the last 24 hours it is insane (but necessary).
And what ya gonna knit when the Devil Himself is standing over you with a Blow Torch?
Here is my little Ribby Pulli, made from ggh Bali (I love this stuff) in the color Kahki. I am almost up to the armscye bind offs. It is light and lovely – but if ever, oh ever, I’ve been glared at on the bus for knitting, now is the time. Fascinated glares, however.
I will KNIT – damn ye, Heat Demons!
What’s everybody knitting in this delirious weather?
