It’s Hot Here!By Veronica Smith – 13 Comments
It’s hot here in sunny Queensland Australia. The travel agents do advertise Queensland as the “Sunshine State”. More Specifically I am in Jimboomba – South East Queensland for any of you with some strange interest and a map.
When I am out in the heat, or anywhere in the house that is not air-conditioned then the whole idea of picking up hook and thread makes my skin prickle with anticipation of a heat rash. However, when I sneak into one of our air-conditioned areas then it’s back to my normal enthusiasm, possibly even more excited. Maybe because I am deprived in the rest of the environment that the air-conditioned hidey holes make crochet seem decadent.
I have taken advice from my own ramblings about “Crocheting in the Summer…When You’re Hot”, and make the most of my time hiding from the heat. By the way it is 39° C (102° F) here at the moment and it is 3:15 in the afternoon and it is very humid. Supposedly we are getting some rain but they have been promising that for ages now. Humidity seems to make the heat more horrid.
So anyway, what have I got on the go in my cool haven? I am crocheting covers for Christmas baubles in preparation for next year’s festivities and I am making a coat – details of that will be coming soon, I am not sure how it will turn out.
Anyway, even though a large number of you reading this are freezing now remember that there is hope for crocheting in summer. For those of you sweating away and wondering if you can fit in the freezer, maybe you can find a haven somewhere, even if it is the local library or air-conditioned shopping center.
