Extra Warmth

Our local paper, The Corning Leader, stated that "temperatures continue to break records..." Great. It's been high 90's for the past 3 days and I am really not a heat person. You will probably never hear me utter the words, "I want to move to Florida for retirement" - nope, not me, not ever. Ironically enough, the hubby and I moved from NYC to the Finger Lakes region to enjoy cool summer (or atleast cooler) weather. Turns out we have record highs. Hemph.

So my evenings have consisted of going home and trying to stay cool. We need to put our little window AC in the den and then maybe I can work on some UFOs. I haven't had the urge to knit that much, but I do want to make some stitch markers. I do, however, keep ordering yarn off the internet and the stash continues to grow. I just really hope to knit some of it up soon!

Since we've only been in our new house for a month, I haven't had a chance to organize my craft room. My excitement grows when I think of everything in its own special place, as I really hope to creat a shabby chic place where I can escape with my craft. Soon I hope to give it my all and make a lovely working space.

I'm still on the hunt for a perfect tea cosy pattern. I've been tempted to buy the tea cosy book, but I fear that most patterns harbor extreme kitsch, and it does scare me. I'm not too skilled with knitting extravagent flowers or animal heads. Well, atleast not yet. All in due time!

So that is about all. More adventures to come soon. Oh, I am a Loopy Groupy! How exciting is that?

I love the Tea Cozy from One Skein Wonders. Not kitschy at all. Look in my projects for a photo.
