There has been a long run of sock knitting, but now that I am home and family activity is slowing down, I've added a few rows to my Pelerine shawl. I can't have the the shawl laying across my lap because it has been HOT here. I'm talking heat indexes between 95 and 100 degrees F. The unspun Icelandic is light, but, boy, is it ever warm!
I'm cushioning the blow by having my parents and children over for Pastrami on Rye and a Jewish movie this evening. The movie is "Hava Nagila: The Movie." It streams on Netflix. It's a short funny but also informative film. Kitchy, I think, best describes it. It is actually part of American culture so I think it would appeal to people who don't identify as Jewish.

Tomorrow, I have a full day of crisis training for work. Summer is just about over for this teacher!
