My current work in progress:

Summer in Washington

The weather report for the foreseeable future:

It’s thunderstorm season!

And here is Girasole, being worn as a hat.

It’s looking pretty much the same as it did yesterday — just a few more rounds done. (The color is off because of the lighting in the room.)

Meanwhile, check out this yummy yarn I got in the mail yesterday:

This is Tilli Tomas Elsie, which is a silk/wool/milk protein blend. I purchased it last week at kpixie — they had it on sale. Isn’t the color yummy?

I’m toying with the idea of putting together a circular shawl design. This is a worsted weight yarn, so it’ll be more of a blanket or throw than a shawl. I’ve got ten skeins of the yarn — 1350 yards, so it’s enough to make something fairly large.

And here is Lucy, looking somewhat Sphinx-like:

She reiterates that she loves the a/c!
