OH where of where as this summer gone to??
As every other blogger was having heat waves I'm sitting waiting for summer to arrive. We've had some nice days but NOTHING compared to what summer usually is here. August is usually the warmest month and the one I look forward to the most.... this year I feel like we got jipped on summer, August is here and it feels like FALL. Ummm pardon me weather but I think you forgot SUMMER!!!!!
All this fall weather have got me craving fall knits, hats, scarves, mittens big wooly sweaters.... am I crazy??? Thats not the worst of it, I was looking at winter pictures the other day and actually MISSED the snow, I definatley must have been on crack that day because I can't possibly miss winter. I do love fall though, I can wear my sweaters and cosy turtlenecks and be snug as a bug and still do things outside without my butt falling off from frostbite. One thing I will look forward to again is sitting by the fire knitting...... *ahhhhh* warm fire!!!
I've got my first hat pattern ready to go, just need the yarn and I'll be off to the races. I think a few pairs of hand warms will be at the start of the line up as well, I could have used them a few nights ago.
Remember the Frog Sweater pattern Amy sent me?? Well I'm gonna use KnitPicks Merino Style yarn for it but can't decide on the main colour. I'll be using Asparagus for the frog but as for the background colour do you think I should go with storm, dusk,or frost... or even a different colour?? Its for a little boy and it would be a size two I'm making. Here's the site for colour reference.
