99% humidity. STUPID. I am over 2-3 changes of clothing a day and 2-3 showers and clothing that sticks to me. My life seems to revolve around this humidity and I'm becoming a hermit! (twas 35 degrees yesterday after school in my car! Then a silly women pranged into my car on a very busy motorway - I've never been in any car accident before. I just sat there in the lane on a huge bridge and the gap between me and the person in front got quite big while i sat there going OMG and then snapped out of it and motioned in my rear vision mirror for her to move over lanes and stop. Her car was dinged; the towbar on mine saved any damage to mine thankfully. I felt very stupid on the side of the motorway and it was very freaky getting out in front of everyone and checking cars / talking to the other driver).
BBQ with school staff good - small crowd but that is okay. Last people left at 11.20pm. Then we have had the cousin's 3rd birthday today but the big cousins working/at other parties/too cool to go to 3rd birthday party (they barely know the cousin who won't talk to them anyway).
I joined up to Vintage Purls latest club - The Lightfinger Club - where an exciting little surprise package arrives in my mail box each month for the next 3 months. All I know is that I will receive every month a skein of 100grm wool in either 2 or 4 ply and a newly released pattern designed by Morag. This is the February package (fudge in there too). A beautiful grey/bluey 2ply. I've started knitting the pattern - it has BEADS - this is a new adventure (adventure or nightmare??!!) - I've put 10 on so far in the 2nd row of 101 stitches and am taking a break for the night... took me a while how to figure it out, but I've learnt another new skill. 2 ply is so thin and new to me as well. And it took 25 minutes to wind up with the husband's kind help. I'm hoping this might be a good alongside university study pattern... (I started last week, although the official semester starts on Monday. I do all my study by distance so all by my little self.. I have the readings and past exam papers, but no study guide as yet, but have started making notes for the first assignment/exam stuff. The very first thing I always do for a new university paper is print off the exam papers.. this exam has remained pretty static for a few years... a good thing!)
Any new exciting knitting/knitting/stitching makes going on?
(OH - whew - cooler temps for wee bit...!)
