The weather here is pretty unbearably hot, right now. It's been in the low 30s all week, and without air conditioning, there's been a lot of laying around and sweating, while wearing barely anything. Luckily I had enough foresight to buy a Fast Pop maker a couple of weeks ago, which actually freezes juice into popsicles in literally 10 minutes. Instant icy gratification, here I come.
In the meantime, I finished and blocked my stripey sweater, but it's far too hot to put it on, even for a simple photo. Ugh.
I'm also to the point of putting the binding on my quilt, but I don't relish the idea of sitting with it in my lap while I hand finish it.
Purple label yarn from TFA. I added a few rounds of stranded knitting to make a zigzag between the toe and foot (and then again between the leg and cuff) which I think adds to their overall cuteness. They're going to be a bit short, since I don't have quite enough of the Lilac to make them the length I generally would, but that's okay. Right now I can't stand the thought of tall socks on my sweaty ankles, anyway.
