Hot, HOT, Darned HOT!

Oh man, what stinky hot, soupy weather we've been having. I have to walk the dog in the morning or it won't get done. Even so, you can see the humidity in the air and I return just slick with sweat. The dog flops on to the cold floor, six inches of tongue dragging out, not even bothering with the cool water I immediately set out for him.

What's a knitter to knit?  Not much, but silk works:
This is a Baktus scarf, knit in Fleece Artist Sea Silk. It was a fun little knit and about the only pattern that the brightly dyed yarn could handle. I will confess though, it's been on the needles a while. It was just its turn to get finished up.

I love the drape of the fabric, and the colors are much richer in a softer light.

Hot colors for hot weather. I hope it rains tonight.


  1. Looks great! Since this is the second finished baktus I have seen today, I am taking it as a sign that I need to start mine. I have the yarn sitting out just waiting for me to finish my garter st vest. Stay cool!

  2. Lovely colors. And your cottage stay looked wonderful. I'll remind you of the heat complaints in January! Ha!!

  3. Love this scarf! I hope to make it for a Christmas gift. It would be yummy in a silk blend!
