I have had it with summer!

I have never been a fan of summer. Even as a kid, I would rather be in school than have summer. That probably came from my farm life, where summer meant cutting cockleburrs out of the soy bean crop. We would be sent to the bean fields early in the morning before it got too hot, but in South Dakota, it was always hot. It would cool off to the 90's and 80's at night, so mornings were still miserable.

The good part is that football has started, so it won't be too long before the cooler weather will come. However, I hear it's supposed to stay in the 90's all this week. Ugh!

So I have about six projects going at once here on my sofa. I was working on a navy blue felted bag with a rust and cream motif, but it is getting too big in this hot weather. The yarn is I Love this Wool, only because I have enough of it in my stash.

I changed to a beautiful shawl project in the latest Vogue Magazine. I am using Mirasole Nuna which is a wool and bamboo blend in a blue gray shade. Very beautiful
