I hope I'm not planning too many cotton sweaters. After all, the saying here about summer is: "Summer came last Thursday, and I had to work, so I missed it." Coming from a climate with at least 6 months of summer, I find this funny.
I have a cotton camisole to knit this summer, and that Vogue summer top, but I don't like to knit cotton exclusively. I'm hoping to make some headway on the crocheted afghan. Yes, I'm still plodding along on it, turning out a few squares now and then. I'm not going to stop until I run out of one of the colors of yarn. I hope that will produce no more than 77 squares. Time will tell. I'm also considering a knitted afghan. I've swatched for it:
Something else that is going away with the cold weather is the Shavano Angel. This is a snow figure that is visible on Mount Shavano when conditions are right. If it has snowed on the mountain, (which is what it does, mostly) and then the snow melts (or blows, brrr) off the higher spots, but stays in the shadowy crevasses, you see her.
This close up will help--upraised arms, a head and a torso. There is the suggestion of wings under the arms, and a halo above the head. (Actually, it looks more like a funny hairdo to me. Who does that call to mind? Tina Turner?)She is much photographed, and has been painted. She's a popular lady. I actually took these photos a couple of months ago, when the conditions were right.
