Imagine my excitement yesterday when I walked into Harris Teeter and found sixers of Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale sitting in the beer aisle? I realize that's it's only August 15th. I can feel the sweat dripping off me as soon as I walk out the door in the morning (it's been in the 100s lately), but this was really the sign I needed (besides pre-season football, of course) to get me through the end of the summer.

It also made me feel better about spending the last few days on Natty. I started the scarf in March, on that one hectic week between terms at school, but never got a chance to finish it until this week. It took exactly 3 balls of Rowan RYC Soft Tweed, which can be got at WEBS on the cheap (Only a few colors left though, stock up now). Anyways, the hat took less than one ball, and the scarf took 2 and whatever was left from the hat. Not a scrap left.

Let's see, I used size 8 and 10 1/2 DPNS for the hat, and size 8 straights for the scarf. Perhaps, you're wondering where the action shots are, but let's be honest here...if you think I'm doning a wool hat and scarf in 100+ Carolina summer heat, you are crazy! Give me my big sunglasses and my pumpkin ale, and I'll see you in September.

It's Been a While

It's not that I haven't been knitting, I just went on a hiatus for a little while. Between school, moving out, and about a million other things that demanded my time, it's just taken me a while to get back to the needles. But rest assured. I am making up for it, and with all the yarn sales this time of year I am amidst a frenzy of new projects.
My arms are about to fall off, but really, who would have it any other way?
