This morning was the first day since I can remember, that I didn't make myself some tea for breakfast. It was just too hot. When I first walked outside with Denny at the and of the leash so he could do his business, my glasses fogged up right away. The difference of temperatures between inside and outside were great. It felt so uncomfortable, and I had trouble breathing. I don't know where the humidity comes from, since it hasn't rained in a long time.
Even the neighbors, who stay outside all day, acknowledged that this was an extra hot day, by putting up some canvas over half their backyard to get some shade. But shade or not, it still felt like almost 50C! I've never experienced temperatures like that.
Thankfully it's wonderful cool in the basement, and I could spin uninterrupted what I had planned.
I finished Petey Pete, superwash merino. I'm going to ply it later.
Yesterday I finished my purplish/blue fiber, plying took longer than I expected, but I wanted to get it into the dye pot at all costs. And I did.
Here it is: 2 skeins of sw merino, 2-plied, together a total of 739yds. It's very squishy, and poofed up quite a lot while drying in the hot air. It's also very soft.
first skein: 350yds
second skein: 389yds
We let the dogs out of course, but not as long as normally. They didn't want to stay outside anyway, and hurried to the door, when I gave the signal to retreat into our cool lodgings.
Inside they rested (Happy), and played (Denny & Maggie).
But mostly they slept the day away.
