So I decided to take part in this year’s Historical Monthly Challenge, hosted by the ever lovely Dreamstress and her band of merry (wo)men. So far I have hit a few snags, the first being not remembering to check it until finals were scarily approaching. As such, I decided to take part in the May challenge of Practicality. I have cut and mostly sewn a lovely chemise, because what else is one of the most practical of garments?
Here is snag number two: Our A/C is out. Not too horrible, but in the 80+ degree Fahrenheit weather plus ridiculous humidity, I just cannot bring myself to turn on my iron, and an unpressed garment is something I am not willing to try and finagle my way out of. I had the repairmen over today, and while they fixed (replaced) my ancient thermostat, a piece is broken and I have to wait for the property manager to OK it before they can repair it. *sarcasm* Yay!
Knitting, however, is something I will always do and although I mostly use wool, it really hasn’t been too bad (lack of air conditioning not withstanding). As a result, and the time I have between making my apartment look semi-decent for the ac guys and the 5 week condensed online course I am taking, I am almost done with my Snowflake sweater.
I’m about to pass out with the heat coming off of the computer, so cross your fingers for me to get the A/C fixed this week!
