You might think that during this heat wave, I’d be knitting with cotton or laceweight silk. It would make sense to avoid wool, especially in heavier weights. But, sadly, I’m not a very bright girl.
Instead, I’ve been visiting Goodwill searching for wool vests or sweaters! And I found this little lovely, a Banana Republic Wool Vest:
It’s time to Up-cycle!
I made Misti Alpaca Ribs & Ruffles Scarf from this beautiful wool!
You say that I may be suffering from heat stroke.
Yes, I’ve lost my mind. But come Fall, when the rest of you are scrambling to knit warm woolens, I’ll just curl up in my new scarf and I’ll smile.
