Excessive Heat

Through the wonders of technology I have an app on my phone that gives me updates on dangers and emergencies based on my location. Since yesterday, I've been receiving excessive heat warnings.  Today we're flirting with 100°F - that's 38°C for those of you north of the border. 

In spite of the heat wave, I'm having warm, woolly thoughts.  I should be thinking of all things cool - frozen mango, iced coffee, sorbet, maybe even a marathon session at the movie theater.  Instead, I'm plotting more adventures with wool.

The heat must be getting to me because I can't let go of the possibilities.

Yarn and fiber color combinations.  And this is only the beginning.

I go to the farmers' market every week, and I'm always scouting out something new.  This time it was the scallions . . . my color inspiration for the week.

Vibrant purple topped with green.

I've been knitting through the heat, too - oddly, it's been one of my more productive weeks.
