It is HOT!!! Really, really HOT!! Even DD #4 is hot, but happy nonetheless.
Hot enough that the kids prefer to stay home during the day and come outside at about 6 o’clock and stay out until late. I can see the reason for the midday nap, that used to be universal. Here most shops and offices close up at 12 and re-open again at 4 p.m. Personally I want to sleep most of the day. Unfortunately with the majority of the kids home on vacation that is an impossible dream.
Do I knit? Crochet? Yes! Yes! And yes!
I have positioned a fan so it blows on my hands and keeps them free from sweat. Forget the old saying about ladies do not sweat – they glow. Around here everyone sweats. I can hardly wait for my new dresses. They are being made for me be a wonderful seamstress in Bnei Brak. Out of the fabric suitable for this climate. The first two are coming in about 2 and a half weeks. Until then – I sweat.
That is it for now. Got to run, Shabbos is very, very soon.
P.S. After I finished my Ten stitch twist blanket I knew I had to start something new. So I have started a Simple Garter Stitch Shawlette for a friend, who is coming to Israel in a couple of weeks. I have also started a really huge crochet project that will be a secret for now.
I am making the shawlette from the yarn dyed by Yarnerian. It is Bambi 70% superwash merino 20% bamboo and 10% nylon, the colorway is Meadow Flowers.
It is incredibly soft and I love the colors, more important I think my friend will like them.
