I don't know if you know what I'm talking about, but have you ever seen a lone, skinny hair on your arm or wherever and marvel at how long it is and that you never noticed it? Well, the past few days I've had a fan on me while I work (it's hot) and I could swear that there is a lone skinny hair tickling my chin area. It is driving me bonkers. I have checked and checked in every super-duper magnifier mirror to no avail. No hair. Not even a long, skinny one.
I can't even see anything on the ultra magnifying light-up mirror my MIL so heartily gave me for Christmas a few years back. On that thing I can see the dang mitochondria of my skin cells, yet I cannot, for the life of me, find whatever is teasing my chin.
Whatever is there, was there this past weekend. We went to the beach along with just about every other person within a 60-mile radius of here. The good news is, we have a big, big coastline. Even when there are crowds, there is plenty of room for everyone. We have nice, sandy beaches, so we spent the whole day.
I knit. And I wore a knit when the light started to fade and the wind picked up (and that hair, or whatever, started to tease me).
Then, when we came home, we were invited to an impromptu Labor Day party up the street. So, I made cake.
What did you do?
Do you like back-to-school?
Do you freak out at the idea of knits on the beach (other than the bikini kind)?
(Because, if the knit is the bikini kind, I can say, from first-hand experience, that it is not a good idea whether that knit bikini is cotton, wool, wool blend, cotton blend, bamboo--esp. bamboo!--milk fiber, soy, hemp--ouch--linen--oy--alpaca, viscose or . . . drum roll . . . eyelash [sad trombone].)
BTW: That sweater I'm wearing is Madagascar. I just realeased the pattern. As you can see there are *gasp*, seams. But they're just on the Body. The Sleeves are knit in the round from the top down.
