That's the way I kind of feel.  Not too many projects going on right now.  I
do have a hat I machine knitted from a hand knit pattern.  I just need to
learn the "smiles and frowns" cast off to get it finished.

Hallo Lynne , in former years we used ti knit in winter and embroider
in summer , after all we live in a warm land.
Now with all the A/C in public transport, i find i can easily knit
even wool. But i am also pleased with the Wonderful cottons one can
find now in the shops, and the A/C makes people wear cotton shawls.
some years ago i knitted myself a Cotton vest which i carry with me to
wear in Transport and lecture halls [ i can`t concentrate on a lecture
when i freeze ]
What is this nice sounding `cast off` like.
Ps the last years i enjoy finishing my knits with ` little tooth`

I do have A/C, but I think it's just a frame of mind.  I'm learning though
to push through it and enjoy my needle crafts. :)

Where do you live, Lynne?  I live in North Dakota and we've had a very
cool, wet spring!  This 2nd day of summer we're expecting a "high" of
62. :(

I *just* finished last night a baptism gown for my granddaughter which
is made out of alpaca/silk yarn.  It's soooo soft!  I loved working
with it.

Thanks, Mirjam.  I need to transfer pictures from my camera to the
computer to free up some space on the memory card and then I'll be
able to take pictures of it and her in it to put on my webshots
album.  Will keep you posted.

Would love to see the baptism gown.  It sounds just lovely.

I'm in Northern California and we also had a cool wet spring.  Unusual for
me not to turn the A/C on in March or April.  The first time it came on was
middle of June.  Loved the lower electrical bill.
