Oh, This Heat Is Killing Me

Usually I try to avoid talking about the weather, but I've spent the last three days in a game of ping pong between home, my parents, and the places I've been judging. The heat is stifling with the humidity. I'm miserable, the rabbits are miserable, and Dot is miserable. That's enough whining, you're here for the knitting.

I have the knucks done except for the embroidery. I need to buy the thread first. I'm trying to decide between putting an antler on each glove and putting "BUCK SHOT" across the knuckles as they are to be hunting gloves. I modified the pattern a bit and decreased sharply along the edge. I was using the 48 stitch size with the correct gauge. Brett needed the larger finger, but a slimmer palm, so I took it down 8 stitches and shaped the bottom of the palm more. I also used a K2P2 edging. Nothing like taking the pattern and "fixing it." lol

I've also decided to spin the silk or the soy silk with the intent of making a hat. Perhaps Grumperina's Odessa. I love the look, but without the beads for the two yarns that I have.

In other knitting news, I've started a new pair of socks. I'll post more later after I've had time to work on them.

I will never forget the reason why my husband bought a window A/C: "Bunnies get hot so easily, so we need to make sure the little one is happy." Yep, you heard me right, 2002 he bought it when we had (at the time) our only bun, Jessica Bunny. A grey Dutch, I might add, who is too smart for her own good!
