The problem with summer

Now, there are lots of things I like about summer. Mainly I like the way it isn’t winter. I like not having to bundle up in 47 layers. I like not having to put on even more layers to walk out the door. And I love all the flowers, and seeing all the wildlife that comes to my garden.

The problem with summer though is it’s too damn hot. Don’t tell me sweat evaporates and cools the body. Sweat dripping into my eyes is not cooling me off.

Anyway. Now that I’ve labeled and inventoried all my stuff for Art Fair and gone and walked on the surface of the sun dropped it off at the Ann Arbor Fiberarts Guild booth, I have time to tell you about my trunk show Saturday at Artisan Knitworks. Or maybe I should let Sandra tell you about it, and the sweater she’s going to make out of a bunch of my yarn along with some of Terrie Voigt‘s buttons.

It was a good day. It was nice to see some familiar faces again and meet some new yarn addicts, and I’m looking forward to seeing how Sandra’s project progresses. She makes beautiful things.

Oh, and the fun thing about the semi-solid Michigan Romney x Finn yarn Sandra refers to? I’ve met the sheep.

Cutest and most pampered sheep ever. Seriously.

Now I need to do some serious resting so I’m better able to handle the heat tomorrow. Extreme heat makes me sort of wilt, so I want to be as rested as I can. (According to my neurologist, there’s some correlation between migraine and heat intolerance, so I’m not just being a wuss.)

Oh, and one last request to the universe I’ll throw out there before I go. Does anyone have a mid-gauge or bulky knitting machine and ribber that they’d be willing to trade for yarn and/or fiber?

    The sheep are cute, ohhh. Did they’ve been shaved lately?
