I took this photo late at night on a street in Jerusalem.  At first glance I thought they were dogs, but when I got closer to the gallery window I realized they were sheep.  I couldn't see a signature so I don't know who the artist is and therefore can't give proper credit to the creator of this image, but I love it.

We set a record in Chicago today:  the only time in our record-keeping history that we've had a 37 degree jump in temperature.  Yesterday the heat was on and today we need air conditioning.  Here's the pathetic segue:  we have yarn for all temperatures!  Really, we do!  We just got some new colors of Shibui Linen; the palette is sublime with neutrals and brights.   I especially love linen for its season-spanning capability: wear it now, in the height of summer or in the fall.   There are some gorgeous designs from them as well, both accessories and garments.

We also just received the new Noro Magazine.  It's been awhile since I've liked a publication as much.  There are several lovely garments that would flatter all figures, plus some darling baby things.  Noro yarns really lend themselves to crochet and it's refreshing to see so many good crochet designs included in this magazine.

We cleared a space yesterday for a new yarn called Tee Cakes.  I never know what you all are going to like, but if you don't like it I'm just going to knit this all myself!  You have to see it!  I'm not telling you anymore.

So, here's a question:  What do you want to knit together?  We're talking about the next Knit Along and I'm stumped.  I spent some time today looking through Ravelry for some ideas and I thought I'd ask you.  So, let me know.  What's in your queue?  What's on your to-do list?  If it's something you want to tackle as a group, tell me.  Leave a comment here on the blog, I need your inspiration!

Thanks,
Lynn
