Red, hot and yellow

When you have all the possible colors on your stash it is only natural just to use one or two of them to create? Seems so. And when you only have very little stash (a rare situation I admit but been there though) it feels that you would love to use any other color than currently available? Check. Oh, the pain of creativeness!

I am quite happy with the blue&red together though. And to be honest, I have something in bright orange on my needles and something turquoise in drying. So I am enjoying my stash in whole. I was a bit overwhelmed for a moment though when I really took a look at all my new wools, there are quite a few. But it is lovely to have many to choose from.

It still is very, very hot in here, and I have had some strange looks when knitting outside. What, it is not normal to knit pure wool when it´s +30c? Just in case I took my work inside, and it really is not that much cooler here either. But nope, I am not complaining after last summers disastrous weather, and two previous ones and... You got the point.

My favorites made into finals (and I knew it before him). I´ll be camping in front of telly on Sunday and cheering them to the victory. Maybe I´ll knit something in yellow and red just to make sure they´ll nail it?

Hasta luego, amigos!

Well it looks like you're making the most of your time off by being very productive!
Enjoy the weather, all too soon it will be that horrible wet and cold again! I wish I hadn't thought of that, I've depressed myself!!! Let's hope it's a long way off.
Keep knitting,

Thank you, Vivienne, I definitely am knitting (and eyeing Fernando T. every now and then too) and loving the hot weather. And you´re right, it will too soon be winter again so we´re not going to loose a second of this happiness, right :) ?

Wonderful day!

Thank you so much, Yarnsnob! I wish to see you here again soon!

Many greetings from hot and still almost sunny (it´s 10 at the evening, hooray for summer!) Finland!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
