A Mid Summer's Knit Dream-Confessions of a Knitter's Season

Medano Beach,Heidi Kirrmaier

A highway patrolman pulled alongside a speeding car on the freeway. Glancing
at the car, he was astounded to see that the blonde behind the wheel was
Realizing that she was oblivious to his flashing lights and siren, the
trooper cranked down his window, turned on his bullhorn and yelled, "PULL
"NO!" the blonde yelled back, "IT'S A SCARF!"

I dream in skeins of yarn. Knitting patterns dance in my head while I go about my day...they tap me on the shoulder in the middle of emails and meetings telling me to shorten the sleeve, knit in alpaca, use two strands... 24-7 I am a KNITTER. I have been known to fall asleep with a skein of yarn by my side, a knitting needle in my hair and a pile of patterns under my feet.

The knitting needles Never Rest, even in the Summer, but in the summertime I do approach my knitting a bit differently. The projects are quicker, smaller, leisurely, easy on the brain cells-perfect for kick off your shoes, put up your feet, grab a cool drink, a good book just and sit and knit!
