Second summer here in Seattle (though, just barely over a year of living here), and I'm still weirded out by how cool it still is and that it can still be routinely raining. Today is one of those gray days. The temperature is comfortable, not cold, but still cool. Back in Austin, it's already up into the 90s, and in some ways I miss that. While it's not fun days on end, like it typically is there, the warmth and sun out do remind you that it really is summer.
However, these rainy days in the PNW aren't all gloom and doom. I do feel like the knitting spirit is maybe not stronger here, but definitely more often found. The weather probably has a lot to do with it, as it's cooler and milder here most of the year around. The idea of "seasonal knitters" are fewer between.
In addition, I am loving all the tea I can have out here without feeling like I'm being silly. Today has been a good day for green tea. And, yes, I have both a Chococat mug and a cat shaped mug. ;op
These recent days have been filled with secret deadline knitting, and somehow my coffee table just exploded with knitting related things! Does anyone else's living space look like this?
