I am proud to say that even though it has been over 90 degrees every day for the past week with not one whisper of a breeze, I have continued to knit. Granted, I wasn't too keen to pick up a scarf or Twizzler (merino wook isn't what I want to touch right now), but I did pick up the potholder loop rug. The cotton loops are breathable and I don't break into a sweat knitting it. I might be getting tennis/knitter's elbow using the huge needles, but everything else is hunky doory. I am planning to use it in my office at school, so I will have a nice and cozy handknit to keep me sane. The cotton loops are soft and squishy, so my feet will stay happy when I am stressing about clients, theses (both the master's and doctoral), and classes.
