Since I learned how to sew at my mother's knee and since I have forgone sewing for knitting for many years I am joining the sew along over at sew i knit.
The item to be made is a top. I have chosen a simple top (it says easy on the pattern) and the fabric . The fabric is a lovely embroidered summer weight cotton blend. Should I get it done on time I will have another cool top to wear this summer.
I will not be putting aside the knitting. No, that I could probably never do. I still have quite a few projects to get started on. I also have several projects still on the go too (surprise, surprise).
Today has been the 2nd day of the southern Ontario heat wave. It was about 30 degrees C today. In the Greater Toronto Area we also have humidexes because of being on Lake Ontario. With the humidex yesterday it was equal to about 45 degrees C. It is so completely oppressive. It is hard to breathe with the heat and humidity but then there is also the pollution index that sky rockets in the city areas so we also get air quality warnings. It was because of the air quality warnings that I finally broke down and agreed to have central air in our house. I didn't put it on last night but you can bet it is on now. Poor Kessie yesterday! She was experiencing her very first heat wave and I don't think she liked it at all. She is much happier with the AC on. Well, the whole family is happier with it on. We all may actually sleep through the whole night tonight!
I am going to have some ice cream now!!
