Oy vey, Its May...and Schvitzing

Its only May, the sun is burning and Im schvitzing hot. How am I going to cope with the weather on our Floriday? Wide brimmed hat and a hand held fan that spritzes water I think!

I went to a friends house today, a knitting pal. She is the person responsible for me picking up two sticks and a ball of yarn...thanks Michelle! She is making the Zoe Mellor dots & stripes blanket, its gorgeous. In fact, I quite like the Zoe Mellor book it came out of. I've used it a number of times.

Now, onto something not so great. The Simply Knitting mag has really disappointed me. I think I've been spoilt with the Rowan and Vogue mags. It doesn't touch the surface of either of them. Will I buy it next month, hmmmm probably! This baby blanket was cute. blankrt A gorgeous keepsake present. Hmmm, a number of potential recipients flooding through my head!

(hrsitinac, I'm pleased you are enjoying the yiddish. I grew up always hearing it around me.

Schvitzing comes from the word Schvitz. Translated it's steam bath, and schvitzing derives from that. So, to say its hot like the schvitz, is to say its schvitzing!
