Sweaty September Ending

Can you believe this?

My poor little weather pixie was completely unprepared - no sunscreen or shades, not even an emergency pint of Ben & Jerry's.  But can you blame her?  It's the last day of September.  I mean, living in Southern California you don't expect crisp fall weather or brilliantly colored autumn leaves.  But 90 degrees Fahrenheit just before 3pm?  Gimme a break! Please?

I had planned to walk down to the LYS this afternoon and share my progress on the hat I'm knitting with the yarn I purchased there.  But I've stepped outside twice in the past hour and each time the words, "holy crap" popped out and I popped back inside to boost the fan speed.

It's a good thing I decided to knit up this hat in cotton yarn, because it's really about the only thing I can stand to be working on today.  And in honor of this heat wave, I've dubbed it the "Sweaty September Tam".  But I think I'll wait till later in the week to visit the LYS.  They don't have air-conditioning either, but I think my fan is bigger!

wow, I'm amazed it's still that hot, 20++ miles out in the Pacific! we're having a "heat wave" up here in Seattle too - I think it might've got to a roaring 70F today.
