Best Ways to Beat the Heat

It’s officially summer here in the Pacific North West. It’s hot. Most of us don’t have air conditioning. That means we aren’t sleeping, and we’re grumpy. One of my favorite ways to combat a case of over heating grumpiness is with a float. Here’s my adult root-beer float.

025It also means I’m mostly working on smaller items. Baby gifts are perfect for summer knitting. Liberated Orphans five and six are just that. Here is my Matching Neighborly Milo and Neighborly Aviatrix hat. Both are made out of Malabrigo Rios in Azul profundo.


I’ve also been making progress on my socks. I’m sure you’ve been wondering all week what I decided on stage six of Tour de Sock. Shockingly, I cast on another pair of socks. Okay, maybe not so shocking. I was making good progress on it when about two days ago it went MIA. I have no idea where I put it. The British Hubby even joined the search and rescue mission. My current thought it is it’s driving to different states playing the Mega Millions and Powerball. I sure hope it sends me some of the winnings.


Update on other wips:

  • Earth & Sky: Still waiting.
  • Charity Malt: I’m on row 51 of the stokinette section.
  • Washington Mist: Liberated Orphan seven!



I’m cute even when I’m hot!

I’m off to see if I can liberate a few more Orphans before the month ends.
