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!
