A couple of nights ago, I finished this very simple summery shawl. It is made of a rayon boucle by Fiesta in the colorway Safari. I love the coppery colors and misty blue.
It is a simple garter stitch with increases on every row until you run out of yarn (with enough to bind off). Just cast on 40 and take off! Knitting every row is mindless (and cheap) therapy. LOL. I used a size 15 circular needle.
I really like the drapiness (is that a word?) of this and the versatility. It can be worn as a shawl or a scarf. And, it is cool.
We passed 21 days of temperatures over 100 yesterday and the forecast looks like we will be making it at least 28 days. This little rescue succulent from last year is hanging in there along with the rest of us!
I have started another Christmas in July stocking. Anybody think I am trying to hypnotize myself into believing it it cooler than it is? You might be right!
Stay cool. If you are outside in this heat, be sure to drink plenty of fluids!
