Sweet Heat

 There is only one way to survive a 109 heat index day.

 A friend gifted me this yesterday and it was a real life saver. There is nothing better than a margarita on a hot day.

I can't complain too much because I am just sitting in the AC, watching the Olympics and knitting through the weekend. I've got another mini skein of that ply of the fly stuff done and the second mitt is in production.

The real star here is this amazing spindle. This thing just spins and spins and spins. I love it and I am really fussy about spindles. I bought it from Michigan Spinner on Etsy in 2010 and never really used it until now. I am sorry to say she doesn't have any more in her shop exactly like this one but she does have other spindles. I just may be tempted.


  1. A margarita (or two) will set just about any day right! LOL

  2. Good 'emergency' tactics to survive the heat index like that! That yarn is working up beautifully. Nothing like a great spindle to make it magical!

  3. I love the yarn too! Keep spinnin lady and keep those cool drinks handy
