I've been feeling the heat here, for a good 5 days! I resorted to a nice cold foot bath, and my hands were still free to stitch, crochet, or read!! It definitely helped! The weather is finally cooling down today, so I hope it is where you are too! Have a great weekend! ~tina

I've been buying my little Knit-wit Emma the cotton yarn. Not so itchy as the other yarn. She'll love the foot bath!
