OK. Fair warning. I’m going to complain about something that I probably shouldn’t. If you want to skip this post, I totally understand.
That being said, here goes:
It needs to rain more.
I know, I know! I live in Seattle, and I’m complaining because the weather’s been too nice? Give me a break!
Summer started extra early this year, and it has been sunny and warm for months. We had a few blissful weeks of rain and clouds, but now it’s back to being summery- I even had the windows open yesterday! I thought I lived in Seattle, and not Los Angeles!
Where is my rain? Where are my clouds? Where are my days spent curled up beneath an afghan, watching the rain drip through the cherry tree outside my window, a cup of tea on the end table and a half-finished sweater in my lap? Where is my rain!
Maybe there’s some kind of knitter’s rain dance I can do?
I could make this gorgeous shawl in lovely rainy colors.

I could knit up these socks with their raindrops, waves and cloud patterns.

Or, if worst comes to worst, I could always just make my own raincloud.

How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?
