Summer Knitting…

So, here we are in the middle of summer, and soaring temperatures that are a little too much for us British.  Not complaining, as I would rather have hot than cold.  Anyway, I digress, “yet again” I hear you all say rolling your eyes.

Because of the heat and not being able to take the dogs out all the time I have become a little bored with day to day life and feel I need to do something to keep myself entertained whilst the pooches snooze in front of the fans.  I thought about doing some educational courses, but then I am not sure if that is what I really want to do, and if so, which of the thousands of courses do I go for.  I then thought I would concentrate on my reading and read more, but I get so comfortable I start to fall asleep, and it is not conducive to read with blaring lights and other stimuli so I don’t sleep, again!

Yesterday I printed out the Great American Afghan and thought to hell with it and I would start that, but then I thought I need to think about the yarn I want to use and what colourways I fancy.  But with all that comes the cost, which seems to mount up each time I find a yarn I love.  Also doing a large project like a blanket in this heat could be a a bit much, but it is a passion I have with large projects.  I think I want and need to do some knitting, but really do not know what the hell to do.  Over the last few years, well, three to be exact I had collected a knitting magazine (120 issues) which gave away yarn each issue and a pattern and I thought should I do them, but again, I cannot decide.  The yarn is acrylic, which is okay, but I prefer to use wool, alpaca etc as it is nice to work with, so back to square one.

I need inspiration from somewhere, or someone…
