It has been a hot summer, hasn't it? In southern Wisconsin, we're headed back up to the high 80s, and the humidity is off the charts!
The only good thing I can say about this weather is that it is perfect for iced coffee, which I love. My method: Set up a French press the night before; put it in the frig overnight with the plunger all the way up; then plunge in the morning and pour over ice.
Aprika Cowl. I saw a few samples at an LYS earlier this summer and then fell in love with the yarn, Rowan Softyak. It really is soft. And not as pricey as you might think at $13 per skein.
I've started reading White Trash, which got excellent reviews. It is fascinating, but also discouraging. This country has never offered opportunity for all, even going back before the Revolution. I am not shocked, but it is painful to read the details. It is well-written, but I'd say it's a book for history nerds.
