It's hot! Really, really, really Hot! We have been most fortunate, up until now, to have fairly nice weather for our area. Nice, meaning low 90s. Now, all of the sudden, it's 105 out with some added humidity. Joy. My worst nightmare. Hot weather and humidity.
Ok, enough grumbling. I finally saw the movie Twilight and absolutely loved it! It was nice watching a movie that was based up in Washington, one of my fave states! It was so cold there in the movie, that I almost forgot about our heat crisis here.
I loved the hat and the mittens that Bella Swan worn in the movie. So, I took to the web in search of some patterns. I found the hat on Ravelry and the mittens on http://subliminalrabbit.blogspot.com/2008/11/bellas-mittens.html. I can't wait to make these! I am unfortunately back in my thumb splint due to too much crafting. I am working on the hat right now, crochet a row, rest for a half hour. It's slow going, but at least I am crafting. I haven't knitted or crocheted for about a week and a half and it's driving me nuts! I miss it. I didn't realize how much I was doing both until I stopped completely.
Well, I am working on a hat, slowly, so that I won't hurt my thumb ligaments anymore, but I can still satisfy the craft craving. It's hard to make winter hats and mittens when it's so bloody hot out. Oh well, crank down the a/c and watch a movie that is set in winter to survive the heat wave.
I am off to work some more on my hat. Later~
