This is a lovely summer. It’s warm and sunny and just lovely. The only tiny problem with that is that it’s too warm to knit sometimes. The hands are sweaty and the wool gets sticky and it’s not pleasant at all. Luckily I am a lady with many crafts in my repertoire. I just switch to something else. Today, since I was going to be out all day and didn’t want to bring a bobbin lace pillow, I chose a small cross-stitch kit and left and when I got back I had made a flower. There are a few more flowers before this is done but I’d say it’s good progress and – most importantly – it was neither sweaty nor sticky.
