If This is Global Warming...

Here's a sneak peak pic of my new easy-peasy wrist and legwarmer pattern featuring Spud & Chloe's Sweater. I'll get the free pdf put together as soon after TNNA as I can manage.
Highs in the mid-50s in June? What's up with that? This week we're looking at mid-60s. This is definitely not going to make the sad looking peppers or tomatoes in the garden very happy, but it does give the girls an excuse to wear their legwarmers. And I was worried about the heat exhaustion that could come from the photo shoot on a hot sunny day and kids covered in wool...

I've got 2 sets done, the 3rd set is fighting with a vest and a couple hats for my attention. I've never been one for project monogamy.

I have no idea how I'm going to capture decent pics with all of the girls (they can wiggle and squirm with the best of 'em), but the youngest was sure cute running around Saturday morning in her bloomers (come on, bloomers on little girls are too cute, you know it) and her wrist and legwarmers, an admittedly odd mix of old-fashioned and funky that perhaps only a 2 yr old can pull off...
Working on organizing my life this week, so I guess that makes it like almost any other week, except that I'm trying to be a bit more intentional about it. Decluttering, making lists, looking at the calender, menu planning, cleaning, filing, school planning, it's never-ending, and the work doesn't get up and do itself. Grrr...

And knitting, there's always knitting, and getting caught up with the rest of life enables more knitting with less guilt... So, off for another 15 minutes of real work, then some down time with yarn and needles (I am enjoying playing with all of the new yarns from Spud & Chloe!), and since the weather is cooperating (50.4 degrees outside at this very moment), maybe some cookies?
Happy knitting-
ali
