We're a Practical People...

... so of course, given a Cool Day in the mid 80's and a predicted week of temps in the mid 90's and possibly up to 100 (with lots of humidity), and given no air conditioning, the Pirate and I decided that now would be an excellent time to spend with some nice, woolly Malabrigo yarn.

The good thing about this fit of insanity is that it turns out that the Pirate is a genius.

He not only caught on to purling very quickly (even though he announces that purling is Evil), but he also figured out the Long Tail Cast On in less two minutes.

(aren't you jealous? don't you wish YOU had a genius for a husband?)

The bad thing about this fit of insanity is that there is no way on earth that he's going to get any more practice in the coming week (being insane but not suicidal), and of course will have to learn both things all over again after this heat wave passes.

Sometime in the next century or two, then.

But really, isn't he clever?

Yay for Pirate! He is a quick learner. I agree that knitting in the heat isn't fun so I carry something a lot lighter around for summer days.

Long Tail Cast On?
Is that for the Willie Warmer he was going to knit?
