Good morning all,
I also have a brother that lives near Phoenix. I'm with Arugula, the Summers are sweltering! My brother seems to have gotten used to it though, and he was a whinny little bugger growing up, so if he can get used to it anyone can.
It's grey and misting here in the Bay Area, still in the 40's and will stay there all day long. Had to break out the winter coat this week. Need to make myself a new scarf. Some of those fingerless gloves would be nice, but I'll have to get a little beter before I take those on
Hope your day goes well and happy knitting
