As Lisa Minnelli sang "Life is a Cabaret" - Life does not work according to plan. Recent weather cancelled plans for many, such as washed out bridges causing long delays and detours. I especially sympathize for those who have changed their plans and now have "bored" children under foot. When I was growing up, we went out and played in the rain, came into a fire and a warm drink (read hot chocolate), thinking we were so lucky. In the summers. we were in a cabin, with no heat, insulation and the plumbing was the outhouse. My mother did not complain about the wet clothes or boots, as she had quiet/productive time while we were all out.
Dress code for playing in the rain: shorts, jacket and rubber boots with hand knit socks. Our feet were warm and dry. Our legs dried more quickly than slacks or jeans AND easier to wash. children are not made of sugar - they do not melt in the rain.
One of the really special joys of working at The Crafty Lady - we get some very interesting questions. We can not always have "the" perfect answer, we do have fun assisting, or pointing people in a different direction. Life is a cabaret - you often do not know how your day is going to go.
Summer knitting can be a challenge if you are not comfortable with working on the afghan or bulky-weight sweater. Lighter weight yarns can be easier and more fun. Summer projects can be smaller and more portable. You can take your knitting to the beach, out in the boat or camping. Weekend projects can create escape time for you.
