New Fridge

The lovely Yarn Botanika just left after a visit where she showed me all of her gorgeous hand dyed fiber & yarn. She makes me very tempted to want to spin! ;)

After she left the delivery company called to say our new refrigerator is on its way. However, that means I had to clean everything out of our current fridge which is also 26 cubic feet.

I did a bit of a clean out of both the refrigerator and freezer but I still have 3 big coolers along with 1 small one. Thank goodness the neighbor had two coolers.

Our fridge has been dying for about 4 months. I keep turning it higher & higher trying to keep it cool but it is on the highest setting and although it is cooling, it is still not keeping things really very cold.

I am HOT. Gotta love Arizona when it is 110 F!

I have made a decision. I am going to rip out the Mystery Stole and either start over or use the yarn for something else. Even if I block it REALLY well, it is going to be a wee bit small for my frame....more like a scarf.

I think I am going to go back to my original plan for that yarn, the KnitPicks Candle Flame Shawl and add a couple of repeats to it so it is wide enough for me.

Congrats on the new fridge -- Have you considered not putting food in it and living in there until winter :)

Not that I'm any better off, it is in the 90's today and I've got NO AC --- so thinking about moving into my fridge.

Nice Fridge. I feel sorry for the guys who have to carry the new one into your house in this crazy heat! I'm hot just sitting still.

Yay for the new fridge! Really sorry for the delivery guys. We (I) made the decision that after swim lesson we were not going out at all! We were out yesterday and Tuesday and it was just horrible. Sorry about the mystery stole. If you chose a heavier yarn would the width be better? I like your new name!
