So what am I doing to keep myself busy inside? Aside from drinking buckets of iced tea (oh, Republic of Tea Blackberry Sage, you are delicious), I have finally started working on the Midsummer Morning sampler by Alicia Paulson. I prepped the floss for this back in May, but only got around to starting it this past week. It is lovely, but it is stitched on black linen. The going is rather slow. I don't think I'll be making anything else on black linen any time soon.

I'm also working on two pair of socks, both of which were supposed to be gifts. One pair, I think, is going to stay with me. Not because I love it too much, but rather the opposite. Although it will end up being fine, it certainly will not be gift-worthy. The other pair will get to the recipient, rather later than I had hoped. I'm losing my sock knitting mojo, though, and am really itching to start a bigger project. But 110 degrees makes me feel like it will never be cool enough for wool, ever again. Ever. I guess I'll just work on some cotton pants for Camden.
