It's too hot to knit! Or at least it has been the last week, now it's getting a bit cooler to the kinds of summer temperatures I can function in - less than 30 degrees celcius.
Therefore I have very little knitting content to show, so I though I'd show the content of others! Here are a few of my favourite blog posts last week - first some with knitting and then some with simple living. Enjoy!
First the funniest thing - knitting makes Twilight better (side note: I can't wait to see Eclipse!)
Eskimimi and Kala are both working on socks, and Nicola finished the Star Crossed Slouchy Beret, a lovely pattern which I have also knit.
Congrats to Gina for going cable-TV free! Which brings me to the simple living blogs I regularly read. In case you're also interested in that theme, take a look at these postings:
How to simplify when you love your stuff at ZenHabits is a guest post but nevertheless a great article on mindful buying. The Mini Manifesto at smaller living is a great read - if you have a few minutes, don't miss it!
I hope you like these blog posts as much as I did!
I love Eskimimi's blog. Very
I love Eskimimi's blog. Very entertaining and her design is great.
Isn't knitting in the heat the worst? It's been unusually warm here too over the last few weeks, and I find myself having to stop and rinse my hands under the cold tap to cool them down otherwise the yarn sticks to the needles.
But still, the sunshine is nice.
I love the sun, but when it's
I love the sun, but when it's over 30 degrees I just can't function, especially not with yarn and needles! The last few days have been cooler, but I still can't do wool really. Too bad because I'd love to finish a great shawl I'm working on!
I don't mind the heat if it's
I don't mind the heat if it's not humid. Here, it's going to be both. I really wish it would just rain really hard (overnight!) and then be hot the next day. That would be perfect.
I don't have any knitting to show. It seems like I haven't had any to show for ages!
