So I can't knit, cut fabric, or run the long-arm machine. Lucky for me, the doc at the Urgent Care had lots of experience treating burns while in the Army -- so I'm hoping I'll be healed up before Quilt Colorado next week!
Cooking is dangerous!
I do have some yummy, scrummy new yarn to show you, though. My friend and yarn-enabler, Deb, the Dishcloth Diva, posted a photo of this yarn on her Facebook page:
I instantly texted her and said "I want some!" Sadly, (ha ha ha) she had already placed her order with Expression Fiber Arts. So I had to make my own order! Only amateurs pay for shipping, so I ordered three skeins to qualify for free shipping.
Here is the other worsted weight skein I ordered:
It's called "Stonewash Sky." Both these skeins will be knit up into Hats for Sailors.
The third skein went to Deb for socks. I miss knitting socks, but my sore wrist just doesn't allow that anymore.

Because Cooking is Dangerous, I haven't been able to knit my three-rows-per-day on the My Year in Temperature Scarf. You can still see how the temps have been soaring, though, just by the June-July sections:
Two 90+ days so far. I'm thankful I haven't needed to use my Salmon for 100+ degrees yet!
No finish this week, but I have taken photos for Sunday's De-Stash offer. Come back and see what's available for free!
