It's been ridiculously hot in Seattle for the last week or two, which is exactly what I don't want in my summer. Give me 65 degrees and drizzle any day and I'll be happy! All I want to do when it's this hot is to sit around in shorts, knitting and drinking red wine with ice and seltzer water. Instead, I've been slowly working through my blocking basket, moving, and writing patterns. High five, self!
As a side effect of this industriousness, I have a pattern that's just about ready for testing: Lupine, a fun little bias shawl with a garter & lace stripe detail and scalloped edging, knit in one skein of gorgeous Malabrigo Mechita. She'll be exclusive to The Fiber Gallery for a bit, after which she'll be available to all of you lovely folks! I'll be sure to keep you posted on her release.
In the meantime, I might go lie on my floor with a popsicle and a rat. This weather, seriously!
Happy Wednesday, friends - and stay cool!
