I think I've mentioned it before, I don't like the heat. I don't like it when it gets hot. I become grumpy and sweaty. Tag me with a capital 'W' for wimp and I'm completely okay with that----I'll wear it like a crown (as long as it doesn't make me feel any hotter)...
To even dream that I used to man a ranger booth in 100-degree temps and smile so pleasantly as I registered hundreds of campers on their merry way into the great outdoors is beyond my wildest hallucinations now. I don't know how I did it without turning into a man-eating grizzly bear... I think those campers would find a pile of sweat if I were to try it now.
So, you can imagine my dismay at trying to work on some of my wool projects right now.
You see, I was immediately smitten with this book: Knit One, Embellish Too by Cosette Cornelius-Bates and felt compelled to pull out some of my hand-spun wool. Just a simple hat to knit so I could try out this embellishment stuff---that's all I asked! No go, it's just too hot.
Even so, the book is a keeper and so are all of Cozy's designs (go take a look, though you might need to be a Ravelry member for that link). Or you can visit her blog to view more of her work. Her artwork in yarn is amazing and so inspirational for me----it's embroidery with yarn which combines two of my favorites.
But remind me of this come late September when the temps start to subside. In fact, now that those true summer temperatures have settled in for a good dose of comfort squelching, I'm beginning to dream of a migration to Antarctica-----I'll knit every Empire Penguin their own sweater. Or Canada----is it cool up there?? Just tempt me with a snowball and I'm there!
