Here I am in Canada as the first long weekend of our summer season begins. We look really forward to summer here in Canada. Summer weather is a very nice change from even a winter the weatherman characterizes as "mild" and its brief to say the least - maybe a couple of reliably hot months with a month or so either side of that better described as being "warm".
So technically, as this weekend marks what we think of as the start of the summer season (really when the "warm" can be relied upon to the degree that no further frost is expected!) and I plan to cast on my first cotton project of summer 2010 imagine my disgust and revulsion when I opened my email to find an "Early Fall Preview" from Vogue Knitting.
What!?! Ewwwww! That is a fully disgusting thought! Delete! Delete! Delete!
It is the first time I can honestly say a knitting related message came into my mailbox that made me shudder and turn away,
Sorry VK, nice gesture but not for this Northern Knitter, not in May, Nope.
