It is also a great therapy. It keeps your hands, feet, eyes and mind coordinated and focus on the yarn in front of you. Yet is is magically relaxing.
It has been so hot. We are in the middle of a heat wave here on the East Coast. My garden looks so sad.
I won't get a good crop this year. Oh well, there is always next season. Global warming, I guess.
The pee gee hydrangea fares a little better. But even the heat-loving, drought-tolerant coneflowers look pathetic.
The mercury is supposed to reach 100 today. With the Washington humidity, the heat index will make you feel like it is 114.
Let's go inside.
I spun up some blue roving that I dyed.
And started a mobius bowl. The pattern is from Cat Bordhi's Second Treasury of Magical Knitting.
First you start with a mobius rim.
Then you keep kintting downward.
Runty came over to inspect. Of course he think it's his.
But Mommy took it away and actually finished knitting. Here is the before picture:
And presto! The magical mobius bowl... Nested inside yet another Mobius bowl.
And if I ever finish all the second socks, everybody on my list will get a bowl of socks this Christmas!
