I decided to enter the summer contest the Ravelry - For Me - group has. The challenge is to knit a pair of socks or leggings between May 1 and Aug 31. They request some photos of the progress with a newspaper showing the date during that time frame. Yesterday while I waited at the dentist for R to get his teeth cleaned I grabbed the Abilene newspaper and took a picture of the first sock progress. The yarn is 75% wool, 25 % nylon but with the small size of the object I am not suffering from knitting in the heat! I can't imagine knitting on any afghan right now. Or even on a large sweater.
