Sounds like my preferred way of doing things, Ingrid. It wouldn't hurt my feelings if I didn't need to use the new fangled contraption again this year. I expect it will get hot enough that I will though. These apartments heat up like ovens, then kilns. If there were a window on the north end of the building it would help. Here in Western Washington lots of us don't do heat well, anything above 80F is hot.
You can't knit the left sock first. Ever.
