I never thought I'd say this, but ...

It's too hot to crochet!
Yesterday was 104.
Today we're closing in on 100.

No, no, it can't be ... not crocheting? Hmmmm, I know, I think I will pack up my yarn and grannie ripple and head out to Barnes and Noble Cafe ... one Java Chip coming up ... for a few hours of sipping and hooking...and cooling.

Where there's yarn, there's a way.

update: temperature hit 103 today ... cooler! (oh yeah!) and had a wonderful Soy Strawberry and Creme Frappucino at B&N, it was luscious ... move over Java Chip, you've got competition.


  1. I'm with you, Gloria. It is so stinking hot and humid. I don't handle either one very well, and the two combined are just awful for me. :p I haven't done much of anything while it's been this hot. Well, I do the necessities, but otherwise things will have to wait. I did do some crocheting yesterday, but it was with thread and I was sitting in front of a fan. I think that's how this afternoon is going to be spent too.

    Btw, your granny ripple is gorgeous! :D

  2. Lovin' your granny ripple glor. Stay cool. :)

  3. What lovely colours you've chosen for your granny ripple - very pretty indeed!

  4. the ripple is so pretty!
    The rains have started, thank goodness! so, the temperature has gone down for us. (sigh of relief!)

  5. Lol...I've been feeling a little out of sorts the last couple of days so I've not done one drop of crochet...uuuggghhh! Your Granny Ripple is turning out GORGEOUS! I have to say again just how much I love those colors.

    Warm hugs my friend,

  6. I have been crocheting a lot because it's too hot to go outside, so I hibernate in here where it's cool with the A/C running...your blanket's turning out so pretty...I really love that pattern :-)

  7. Well its so cold here I'm crocheting so I don't have to turn the heater on.
    Love the colours in the granny ripple

  8. Hola guapa!!

  9. This is just beautiful, also in the way you crochet!
