heat wave

Little Guy's request was for a red scarf.
The last two days in Brisbane has been HOT.  Don't get me wrong we are used to the heat here but a month into Autumn and we are sweating.

An extra long thin scarf for me which I can wrap and drape around my neck as a scarf or a necklace.
So guess what I'd spent the last two weeks making - scarves!  I thought after a few cool days and beautiful nights that I was safe to start my knitting.  Apparently not!  It's almost impossible to knit in Brisbane in summer - not only do we have limited use for knitted garments but it's way to hot to have your knitting sitting in your lap.

One thing I was very pleased with last week though was I taught myself to Purl.  I've only ever been a very basic knitter of scarves in Garter stitch but now I can add Purl to my list of skills.  I actually like the way that the knitting curls up when you 'knit one purl one'.

One thing that is loving the hot weather though - the garden!  I'd given it a very savage pruning on one of our cooler days a few weeks ago.  Now after a weekend of rain the lavender is blooming beautifully.  Watched over by my little friend.

I love your scarfs, especially Little Guys!
Love the garden ornament!

I can't reply to you comment because you are "no-reply"! I have been to a few of the shops around Brissie, but I list would be great - you might know of some that I don't!
