So, after five hours in the ridiculous heat watching my ten year old collapse from heat stroke at his Lacrosse tournament, I am sitting in front of my hard working window unit to shout my day to the world:
First, shopping and FO's...
Well looky, looky...
First there were these:
These are my little two-toned Felted Tote and my Simply Splendid Socks! using Lana Grossa Meilenweit Multieffekt. Aren't they bright and cheerful? Are they finished - no. They would be straggling kicking and screaming on the pins...but aren't they cheerful?
Oh, and then there is this:
This is my Brangelina hat - I'm sure it would be much more fetching on my head - but I have not perfected those photographs yet, and, it's a grillion degrees so not hats on my hot head please.
I would like to take a moment for this personal message:
Damn you Xcel Energy and your cursed Energy Miser! We are doing our thing for the environment and allowing You to brown out our air conditioner at peak times - and You have more of a tendency to shake Your collective finger at us then sympathize if we should complain. But today; today our Energy Miser decided that we have used our share of air conditioning for the summer and shut us down, even though You, Xcel Energy claim you are telling it to do no such thing. Xcel Energy, I am a 45 year old, close to mid-lifer and I DO NOT TOLERATE 90 DEGREE HOUSES! Holy cats! COME AND FIX OUR ENERGY MISER NOW! Oh please, not 36 to 52 hours from now....whimper...
Back to your regularly scheduled programming. Shopping!! Shall we see?
First there is this - Bam Boo - oh so pretty!

And this: Alchemy 50% during the Sidewalk Sale in Excelsior. Can you tell? I am a slut for color.
There is more...oh, there is a Rogue and a hand-dyed cotton stockinette shawl, which has already been gifted to my SIL, and a Nantasket Basket (oh so easy), and two little blue felted purses, I think my nieces must have these.... but I think it may take too long to download, oh so many photos - so I shall have more FO and in progress to show off...later.
I am off to sleep in a bean bag chair in front of the window unit.
