Apparently the phrase "the dog days of summer" have to do with the appearance of the "dog star" Sirius, in the sky, not the fact that my dogs have little desire to move, in the 29 degree afternoons. I'd show you a picture, but they both hiding, somewhere cool.
I have to agree with the dogs, the hot weather makes moving a chore. After 42 days spent knitting on Alberta, I decided to go for something that required less mental capacity. (Thank you for all the lovely compliments on Alberta.)
I have made 3 of Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jackets (known in knitting circles as the BSJ). They are quite quick and simple to do, and make a lovely jacket for a baby of either gender, so they make a great shower gift.
I have some lovely bamboo yarn, sitting in my stash, just asking to be knit, so I started a BSJ.
Meanwhile, Layla has joined us at the Resort and spa, for a couple of weeks of R & R after 6 weeks in the shelter. She is Foster Cat # 160, at our house.
