Too hot to knit?

I must admit that knitting has taken a holiday with this heat.

Good time to go through your patterns and your Christmas (yes I wrote that word!) list and think about what you are going to knit!

The shop is in a bit of chaos right now, we are moving stuff around. A couple of new (new to me!) display racks are ready to be filled with stock.

I huge shipment of Baba Tree Baskets is waiting to be soaked and shaped in my house. Some new designs and colours! Gregory (the basket wrangler) has decided to make this the last shipment he is bringing into Canada. Bureaucracy and increasing costs are making it more difficult for him to be competitive.

Pictures to follow shortly.

Trying to keep cool in this air-conditioning free zone!

See you Soon

I know what you mean. I've put aside the baby blanket and working on more socks. They may get put aside for some smocking. We're a/c-free too (not by choice) and even my hands are sweating. Can I knit in the pool??

I have a customer who told me she knits in the shallow end of the pool sitting on a lounge chair, with her favourite beverage close at hand....perfect.
