Staying Cool Posted on July 2, 2013 by Jen 27 I’m in need of Cool Blues . Triple digit temperatures in Northern California ! There’s just something about Emma sprawled out on the floor , sleeping out the heat, just makes me want to decorate her. I personally think that yarn towers have magical cooling powers.

All of my favorite colors!
Right ! Blue, blue-ish green, and blue-ish purple ! 🙂
Looking at your piles of blues makes me itch to knit!
As if you’re not???? 🙂 xx
Well, now that you mention it…! I’m almost done with the third baby sweater!!!!
Love those shades! I love blues and greens. Reminds me of the Mediterranean Sea. Can’t wait to see what you are going to make. Hope you are both staying cool! X
Hi hen ! Oh, I’m not making anything of *these* yarns… I was just photographing blue for the cooling affect! I know… strange. 🙂
Love the little blue cairns, or inukshuk’s as they are referred to in the Northwest.
Thems is trail blazes for Knit Walkers !!! 🙂
And how are you !!??? You’ve been gone for a long time hen. xx
That look on Emma’s face. I love it. “Good Lord, what is she doing now……and I haven’t even combed my hair.” Hugs
Oh yeah, it’s *just* like that too ! 🙂 I bet you miss her as much as she misses you.

Aaaah, I miss her bushels. I can’t believe how we were hunkered down together in that chilly wind…..and now it feels like we’re in a kiln! Holy Mackeral!
And to think only one week ago today, it was raining buckets !!!!
Ah, a dog’s life. Love the cool blues.
Hi Sharon… me too ! (not sure what Emma thinks of them though. 😉
Same here in Idaho, 100, 101, at least we haven’t topped 101 yet this year. Those colors are my favorites also. They are soothing! Love the photography 🙂
I’ve decided that blue is my summer color ! I was playing at a party outside upvalley in the late afternoon last Saturday ~~~ 108 degrees !!! Believe it ! I thought I was going to die….
Yes, I live in napa and its been hooot! Currently knitting on some cool blue myself 🙂
Howdy Sarah ! Nice to meet you. 🙂
These colours remind me of the seascapes when I was on the Isle of Tiree.
I remember those photos…. you were there only last year about this time, it seems.
It is hot here too (36c) and going to get hotter. One problem with Spain is that a lot of places do not have a/c. I have been taken siestas every afternoon, and I never nap!
Lots of ice water and park a fan in front of Emma. 🙂
Good advice about Emma, thank you Kay ! We sort of have some air conditioning, but nothing fancy , it still gets hot. I took a Siesta today too!
sending cool ocean breezes up your way jen! love emma and her blues.
Thanks SO MUCH Lori, for those ocean breezes !!! Here in the woods, there is a tiny breeze, but only ever-so-slight. Often this time of year everything becomes dead still, as though the whole of N.California is sleeping out the heat. So quiet that you can barely hear the thin red skin of bark of the madrone trees cracking and peeling, then falling with a whisper to the ground… its kind of spooky actually, 🙂 xx
