Less than 100 degrees!

Yesterday the trend of daily temperatures being over 100 degree was broken! It was a lovely day of mid to high 90's (ha!) But it did feel cool enough to spend more time with yarn.

I'm a very tactile person when it comes to yarn. Since I teach at Michaels, it's my obligation (snicker) to work with as many yarns as they carry. As you can guess, I spend loads of time in the yarn section.

A few months ago, I got Moda Dea Dream in 4 different colors - 2 skeins of white, and 1 each of pink, purple, and green (for the exact color names, click on the link). It's like working with cotton balls - very, very soft yarn.

I decided to make another scarf and hat set since both work up quickly.

This is the scarf so far. It's being needle knitted but I think I'll do the hat on the Knifty Knitter with the same checkered design.

It's never too hot to bead. The non-knitting time was spent designing beadwork. None are ready for pictures. But since a blog without pictures is just a letter, you need a bead picture!


This little guy demanded to be made last fall. He's drawn comments whenever he gets an "outing" and hangs out with the hummingbird when at home.

My mom would love that little Koala bear.

You are so talented! I love the colors you chose for the scarf. And the beading is just super. I have done absolutely NOTHING recently. The heat has just drained me of all my energy.

Hi Kathy, I love to knit but mainly stick to simple things and have not ventured into the world of socks. Your scarf here is so pretty and I love the colors but oh that pattern. I would not have the nerve. Well, not yet anyway.
