It's too hot. It probably was in the 80's today, but it just felt super hot all day. I cranked on 2 secret projects, so I don't have much in the way of progress photos. I didn't knit on my Tour-de-Sock Stage 4 socks at all. I kept saying, "I'll just finish one more row, then I will work on the socks," but, I was making good progress, and having fun with the surprise knitting/hooking, so I just kept going.
I have to say that I am enjoying moving from project to project again. Before all the Sock Madness began, I made a point of working a bit on 2 to 3 different projects each day. I would knit a bit, then make an afghan square, then knit on something else. If I was close to finishing something, I would sometimes get monogamous for a day or so and finish that one thing up. Taking breaks and changing up what I was working on during the day, kept each project fresh for me. I don't like to have too many things going. I can't keep all of the patterns in my head, and I find that a lot of time is wasted figuring out where I am, etc. Three to five projects is just about perfect.
Anyway, although it is hot, my cats, especially Beena, still want to sit on my lap while I work. This makes a hot situation extra hot. I mostly convince her to sit next to me, but sometimes I have to nudge her off. Also, because of our raccoon visitor, we can't keep the deck doors open too late, and that cuts down on the evening breeze. Ugh.
I still don't have a photo of the recently finished afghan, but my niece-in-law did send me one of her niece modeling the afghan.
