Ribbed, For Her Pleasure

My next Vintage KnitALong project is a 1942 Ribbed Blouse. So far I've done about 5 1/2-6 inches. I'm using a shiny cotton/rayon blend yarn with a slightly nubby texture that I got in a 3 lb cone off eBay. The weight and drape is a lot like silk yarn. I don't think I'll have to make any changes to the pattern for my size except I'll knit it a little longer from armhole to waist. The yarn I'm using won't be as clingy as wool and it'll hang a bit better.

There was no way in hell I would be fooling with anything wool in this heat. We've got almost an entire week of temps over 100 degrees to look foreward to. I've started hearing about blackouts in some parts of the state so I'm fully expecting to be sitting, and sweating, in the dark sometime this week. Just like those poor slobs in California.

My apartment is swarming with fruit flies, which I supect came in with the bags of veg I got from my parents' garden and they keep landing on my sweaty, sweaty arms. I'm sitting at the computer trying to type while I windmill my arms at nasty flying things so they won't take a nosedive into my glass of ice water.

So I'm cranky.

I hate fruit flies theyre evil I think theyre synonomous with the fucking heat though?

We get the fruit fly problem at least once every summer. Annoying boogers. This year we have ants. Those little black "piss" ants. Well, that is what we call them. They climb in from my patio door. I vacuumed them suckers up the other afternoon. And squirted them with my lemon-scented cleaner. hehehe...

Oh, I can't wait to see the ribbed top. The color looks kind of purple in the photo. Pretty.

Alright, I hope it cools down for you and life can resume to normal. I hate being hot too.

Hey we have pissants too!

For some reason my shiny black yarn photographed as purple. I've got my shutter speed too slow right now.

This weekend should be cooler so I can get some knitting done.
