Summer......what can I say. It's been incredibly hot here in Melbourne, well Australia all over for that matter. We broke another weather record here in Melbourne last week....4 consecutive days over 41c. I can't begin to tell you how awful it was. Normally we get one 40+ day and then we drop down in temperature and we may get another one a month or so later....maybe 4 over the course of the whole Summer, not 4 in a row......this felt relentless.
Hopefully the remainder of the Summer will just stay balmy, sunny with the odd thunder storm and a little bit of rain, that would be nice....and maybe just moderate temperatures.
I've been doing some baby blankets again. I don't know what it is that inspires me to crochet in hot weather.....I think it has something to do with the wool moving a little more quickly through my hands than what knitting would, therefore I don't feel it sticks as much.....sticky wool, sticky hands, not one of my favourite combinations.
Anyway I've just been moving through the days, back at work, walking, catching up with friends, seeing a few movies, going to the tennis and generally just being a little lazy.....oh and I had my hair cut off, that was a momentous moment, all 25cm of it.....I think the hot weather played a big part in that!
Anyway I'm going to sneak back and do another hour or so of crochet time, before I head out for the afternoon.
