Then between last night and this afternoon, I finished the knitting part of the Baby Kimono and blocked it:OK, I realize that variegated yarn on a flowered comforter is not the best combo, but you get the idea. Once it's ready, all I'll have left to do is sew the side/sleeve seams, and add the ties. The construction of this was really a neat technique to learn, so I'm glad I took the class, even if there isn't anyone immediately to receive it as a gift.
I was also able to get the blog set up for the Second Wave Clapotis KAL, and get everyone's name on the list. We may have more people join, but at least as of tonight, it's up to date. I think we have a good group of knitters, at different levels, so I think it will work out really well.
So far, 25 of you have left comments, and been entered in the contest I'm having to celebrate the one-year anniversary of my blog. Remember, you have until midnight on Sunday, August 19 (a week from today), so there is still time, if you want to have a chance to win the $20 Barnes & Noble gift card. It may amuse you to know that The Tim was aghast at my statement that I would use a random number generator to choose the winner - he was certain that I was just saying that, and was going to throw pieces of paper on the floor, and let one of the cats choose. He was amazed when I told him there were online random number generators. HA - for once (quite possibly the only time), I knew about something online that he didn't!
And just so you know ...
If one more person tells me it's not the heat, it's the humidity, I'm going to lose it. Yes, the heat is made worse when the humidity is high also, but I'm sorry, when the temperature goes to 90 degrees or above, it's the HEAT. It has been, to use one of my mother's expressions, "hotter than Billy be damned."
And that's hot.
