Oscar and I have often thought about moving to a dryer, warmer climate to help reduce the pain of arthritis.
But I would miss the cool weather, I think, so I'd want to be at a higher elevation.
I would NOT miss the damp. I hate high humidity.
I like heat just fine, as I found out one July in San Antonio, Texas. Without humidity, the heat felt great.
But now it is fall. And I have good reason to snuggle under my lap quilt, and knit with wool, the larger the object the warmer.
I am still working on the burly zig, and pair of stranded socks for Oscar (30 rnds to go) but I might take today and play with some new yarn Lynn sent me.
There is a Bloom-style shawl in my book of Norwegian knitting. They have the short rows done from both directions. I want to try it, in stockinette
