My little sister has been visiting us from Tennessee for the past week. (Whoopie!) Along with her awesome sense of humor, she brought some good ol Tennessee weather with her. Namely the heat. (Booooooo!) It has been scorching hot here in Portland since the day she arrived. How RUDE I say. How rude.
Since has been deemed anti-social to go down into my nice cool basement to sew, leaving my poor sister with nothing to do…I managed to resurrect my knitting mojo.
All it took was a nice cold beer, half of my Wollmeise stash, and the super sweet and popular knitting pattern by Ysolda Teague, Ishbel. (Which is only one of the many darling patterns in her self published book, Whimsical Little Knits.) A winning combination for knitters block! Needless to say, i finished the beer, and am already halfway done with the shawl.
Monday, the whole family is heading out to the coast. Cannon Beach to be exact. I cannot wait! (I hope to pop into Coastal Yarns while we are there too.)
