Too Hot To Handle

We are in the midst of a heat wave, and it has zapped all my energy.   To say I'm feeling sluggish is putting it mildly.  In this heat it takes three times as much energy to accomplish a fraction of what I normally do.  I feel like crawling into a cave with instructions to wake me in the fall.

The kids are doing their best to keep cool.

Board games have replaced bike rides.

My coping strategy includes a new knitting project.

Cedar Leaf Shawlette.  I'm mesmerized by the short rows - a temporary distraction from the heat.

I did brave the heat for my weekly visit to the farmers' market.  Lately I've been drawn to all things yellow.  This week the farmers' market provided my yellow fix and my color inspiration.

Glistening and bright.

Love your Cedar Leaf! What is the color/yarn?

You are such a fast knitter, even in this awful heat!

It's even hot here in NH. I took along another mitered hand towel and knit half of it while watching the new Harry Potter flick (a treat from the grandparents - air conditioned and everything!).

I hear the weather is going to improve soonish. Can't wait, myself!
