Feelin' hot, hot, HOT!

It is hot. WAAAAAAAY hot. Hotter than it has any right to be, even though it is August in New York. It's so hot that there's a Heat Emergency in effect. I don't know what this means for sure, but it can't be good.

And so, with the temperature at a record high, what should I work on but the bathmat that is quickly turning into the Biggest Ballband Ever!


This bathmat is quickly taking on the proportions of a blanket, with weight to match. It'll make a super bathmat, but for now it's an exercise in knitterly zen (not to mention knitterly determination and knitterly nuttiness) just to sit under it and do a few rows.

I never thought I'd hear myself say I wish it were winter, but right about now I almost do.

I'm glad you're still posting on the MDK KAL, even after being chided (*wink*). Your ballband bathmat looks great and I want to see the finished product. I don't think it was anything personal.

Love your ballband bathmat...there just might be one in my future. I hear you about all the strands tangling. WHen I made my absorba I wound 2 strands together on my ball winder so I only had 2 actual balls to worry about tangling. I only used 4 strands total but maybe if you wound 2 or 3 strands together into one ball then there wouldn't be so many to tangle? Just a thought :-)
