Saturday snippets

in which our plucky heroine braces for the return of hot weather

Though hopefully not as bad as earlier this year! NOAA has us forecast for not only an incoming heat wave, warm nighttime temperatures, but also the return of "patchy smoke" by Sunday night. I know it is much worse in the fire zones, but I am still not happy about this...

In the middle of the week, Farbjorn came down here from Blue Cedar House to help with a long delayed housey project, the building of a sculptural lighting fixture to bring more ambient light to the living room, which, with no overhead fixture, sorely needed it. Here he is attaching the panel to the ceiling between the front door and the living room; the lights will end up helping to define an entryway space, as well as making the whole room a lot brighter.


There has been slow if steady progress on my first autumn 6PAC garment, the knitted mini-poncho that I am calling Tweedledee, since the combination of three colors is a warm greyed-turquoise tweedy combination. I have finished the back half, and am now well into the front half. I find it hard to believe that no one has ever posted this pattern to Ravelry before, and that it was so unpopular as to then be discontinued entirely. I guess that the current trend in knitting is everything from the top down, and all in one, while this is knit in pieces and then seamed together. When I finish, I will send a message to the designer, to let her know how much I have enjoyed knitting it. I am certain that it will prove a most useful garment when it cools down again, as it must... eventually...

earlier this week, I forgot the name of the fridge, and called it the "cold room"... apparently I am not the only one who does things like this:
