it's hot.

just call me captain obvious. it's too hot to work on any long-term or large projects. so i've been knitting dishcloths from mason-dixon knitting.

I knit a baby genius burp cloth in cream knitpicks shine. i made it washcloth sized. i also made a bobble washcloth in pink knitpicks crayon. the OFFICIAL official start of xmas knitting. i plan to make a bunch of these for gifts. might as well start now. in the gift-giving vein, i also started the counterpane accessories pouch from handknit holidays in knitpicks merino style. i plan to modify it a bit to make a clutch bag. i am racking my brain, trying to figure out who to gift it to, but i can't think of anyone besides me who likes this color. so i might have to keep it, wouldn't that be terrible? the yarn was an sp present from bronwyn. and finally, i can show the ballband washcloths i made in pakucho organic cotton, one for my summer fling secret pal, the bitter knitter, and a matching one for me.

which brings me to the grand finale. i got my summer fling pkg yesterday. whoopee!
Summer Fling SP pkg
Here we have: Birthday Cake whole bean coffee (belated birthday greetings, excellent), a mix cd and an audio cd of vonnegut's breakfast of champions (i can't wait to listen to both but i forgot to bring them this morning to upload them to my ipod), a pretty wooden bangle, a handknit bag filled with my favorite starlight mints, a little recycled paper sketchbook, 3 hanks of my favorite favorite blue sky cotton, AND a length of orange print thai silk. it's so beautiful--i can't decide if i want to make a tunic top or a skirt. wyatt even found something for him...

Thank you, summer fling secret pal! just one problem: i have no idea who you are. i didn't see a note or anything, and i'm sure i am incapable of venturing a guess. hope you reveal yourself soon, so i can thank you properly.
