It's hot!

It's going to be another scorcher today. For the past week or so, the temperatures have been hovering in the mid 30's centigrade. That's mid 90's fahrenheit. Thankfully, we do have a small air conditioner and we've been running it a lot, so the apartment has been comfortable. Still, it's been too hot for knitting. 

What knitting I have been doing, has been on this little project. The pattern is Suzie by Annita Wollschut and is available for free on her website. I'm using some old Regia sock yarn that I had in my stash. It's taken me all week to get this far. I now have one arm left to do, then the ears. It's very cute!  A little fiddly, but cute. 

These little toys could become addictive. They're quick to knit up (when the weather's not working against you), they're cute, and everybody loves them. I've already got a small collection of patterns I'd like to make.

But I'll never stop knitting lace! 


  1. Thanks for the links to these adorable creatures! I went to the website and was astonished at the artistry of the designer. She is marvelous with color, dyeing, and spinning as well as knitting.

    Her website is going to be another one of my "inspiration" sites, and thanks for sharing it!


  2. I think the little toys are very sweet.
