The local news just posted this on Facebook: ”100 degrees — new record high for Denver, beating out records from 1990 and 1936.” Seriously? (No wonder I don’t feel much like knitting or crocheting today.)
On June 6 we were buried in ice-cold hail …
A local tree trimming service did some dead-tree removal and overgrowth pruning in our yard this morning and were amazed at the hail damage to the trees and plants. I have been raking up debris for two weeks now, and at last count there were 16 large trash bags full of shreds & shingle shards collected from throughout the yard. Seriously?
Since it’s 100 degrees outside in normally comfortable-climate Colorado, I am spending more time indoors. This Bunny-Ear Blankie (for charity) was completed today. I had discovered, hidden in stash, several balls of a vintage yarn (Phentex “Fingering Tricot Fin”) and tried crocheting with it on a size H hook. It was perfect for this design. For simplicity I decided to finish it off with a basic shell border rather than the original “bunny-ear” border:
Earlier this week DD and her fiance became ”aunt and uncle” and showed us photos of them holding the sweet newborn girl, so I guess that’s why baby things are currently in mind (and I suppose since they both now have a touch of “baby fever” that means some day DH and I are likely to become grandparents.) Seriously?

There are a lot more project ideas and photos in the DBKN collection on Ravelry for all seasons and climates … be they hot as fire or cold as ice. Seriously.
