I can’t believe it’s almost the end of August. Time is flying around here – my wedding is in less than 2 months, I’ve been at my new job for almost 3 weeks, and our air conditioning has been broken for exactly 2 hours. Two sweaty hours. Dear Lord. This weather is CRAZY. Twice this week, I got in my car at the end of the day and my temperature gauge said 108. I’ve lived in Georgia my whole life, and this is the hottest summer we’ve ever had.
Did I mention that our air. conditioning. is not. working?
So, I’m sitting here with a very hot laptop on my lap, under a ceiling fan, thinking about knitting, but it’s almost too hot to knit. I was working on a lovely camisole from Knitting Lingerie Style – but it makes me hot just to think about knitting with a wool alpaca blend right now. So, I’ve been working mostly on my never-ending Chevron Scarf:
I’ve decided to just knit it until I have the yarn runs out. I’m using two skeins of Socks That Rock, alternating the skeins every two rows…like probably a million other Chevron scarves that you’ve seen in KnitBlogLand. I was inspired by Dogged Knits Ashley and Domesticat. I’m too hot to link (edited to add: AC at work = adding links in the morning.) SO HOT. I’m a hot, lazy blogger.
This is gonna be a super long, pretty scarf, if I can persevere to the end of the skeins.
Sorry I’m Grumpy Complainypants. The temperature hasn’t been below 100 in days. Weeks. I’ve just been working hard at the new job and working on wedding stuff. Invitations have gone out, and we’ve even been working on the centerpieces…
This is what we have to wear to work on centerpieces.
We are so serious about centerpieces.
I even got a veil. Not gonna post a picture of that because the Pants is not to be trusted. (the Pants are not to be trusted? Hee.)
So. how’s that for a lame catch-up post? I miss blogging frequently. I need to make more time in my schedule for it. I can’t complain too much though – my busy schedule is mostly due to a job I love and an upcoming wedding. Things are good.
I’m a tad sweaty, but I can still smile in pictures.
