Warning: Graphic Photo Ahead...

Help me....

They're here already! You're next... you're next...... you're next........
Kevin McCarthy, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, 1956

Yes, it's another fabulously steamy day here in summer vacationland, the place where you'll hear such phrases as: What's there to do today? But it's too hot to go outside! Oh, I'll read later... And a personal favourite: How come we always have to clean our room when there's nothing else to do?

I, on the other hand, am never bored,which I expect displeases those who are younger even more - just finished the sample shrug for Apple LaineAppleLaine Ruffled Shrug
I think the colours look like a watercolour painting, and I love the lace patterns. Being slightly perceptually challenged, however, it took me a LONG time to figure out how this would be worn - there's no head hole. Two armholes, but nowhere for your head to go. I did, finally, figure it out, even though it's not for me so it's not that important that I get it. But still, nice to have a visual of what's taken a couple of months of steady work to produce.

Got a little decadence in the mail today:New indulgence. Nothing like a little Fleece Artist to kickstart the morning. But wait, what's that with it?Stitch markers, or earrings??Matching stitch markers with freshwater pearls? Are you sure they're not jewellery? And how hard would it be for me to make them into jewellery, because frankly, I think my earlobes are just a little more deserving of such luxury...

This evening, I am planning to start something else, about which I am very excited, but very late: better late than... you know. I have been completely enjoying reading along thus far, and am looking forward to jumping into the fray -

as long as the ivy doesn't get me first...

Freshwater Pearl stitchmarkers! Gorgeous. What a fantastic surprise. The wool looks lovely too.

Knit and Tonic posted almost the same thing today -- stitch markers as jewellery.

Keep well back from that Ivy -- hilarious!

oh yes those stitch markers should definitely be earrings, would be really easy to do.
