Plucky Love and a Heat Wave

Just in time for Miss Plucky coming to visit in AZ, we are having record breaking temps. It's supposed to be 93 degrees today. HELP ME. Someone save me! AHHHHHHHH! It makes it hard to really get into Christmas knitting, but I'm plugging along.

Case in point: Triple Cable Muffler for my dad for Christmas. The pattern is from One Skein and I'm knitting it out of heaven....oh, I mean...buttah....uh, clouds of marshmallow fluffiness that is The Plucky Knitter Merino Worsted in Earnshaw. This mother is hard to photo...I tried several different lights and rooms in the house and these were the best I got. I think this might be better photo'ed outside next time. These pics don't do this yarn justice...it is gorgeous!


I did finish one Kaffe Fassett sock after settling on the flat toe from Knitting Vintage Socks and also finished knitting and steeking Melody. Pics soon.

I don't know whether to curse you or thank you for telling me about Plucky Knitter! I can't help but scoop up her colorways, they certainly are delicious! I can imagine that your scarf will be well received. If not, SEND IT MY WAY! :-)

Can I tell you how incredibly angry I was when I stepped outside to put the recycling in the bin this morning? It's getting rediculous!
