Welcome to the Midwest. It’s halfway through June, and I’m still wearing jeans and sweatshirts. I went to a bonfire last night, and the host let the (tiny) fire go out around 11:00. We stayed outside until midnight, and it was COLD.
I’ve also just started a new job! I’m working as a graphic designer at an engineering firm, and I love it. The office is especially gorgeous: it has high wooden ceilings, exposed brick walls, and a lovely sage color throughout. However, it is drafty. Since it’s been rather chilly outside, and office buildings always seem to have the air on, I’ve been miserable. That’s why I’m working on this in the middle of June:
Jocelyn Tunney’s RittenhouseTown Wrap found on Ravelry.
I wanted something that I could just throw on the back of my chair and make my cubicle feel a little more homey. I chose a light dusty blue, and it’s very pretty so far. The best part was that I got a pair of circular needles and four skeins of worsted weight for less than $15!
I’m hoping this project will go quick, because I’m very cold in my office. I’m so set on this shawl that I refuse to bring any kind of extra sweater. I will suffer until my dream is finished.
What do you like knitting in the summer?
