In the dog days of summer in this part of the country, I find myself staying inside and sewing or knitting, and now spinning.
Yes making my carbon footprint even larger, turning the AC up and getting out that large quilt, or sweater that has been half finished.
It seems I can find the warmest, (hottest) item to work on, and of course will need to have it on my lap to start working on it.
This always amuses my family. Over the years I have finished a California King quilt, (large and hot), a Fisherman's cable sweater, (this was early on in my serious knitting and I was determine to make this), a sweater coat for myself, (which is so hot I seldom wear it out in the winter) and numerous other projects.
Maybe I am trying to fool myself into pretending it is cooler out. I guess it is a reverse hibernation of sorts. Turn the air down, put on a movie, or ipod and cocoon into my projects.
