So, some progress photos of Hourglass Sweater:
Here's the hem, which is a nice edge, I think.
And I'm pretty pleased with how neatly I sewed the hem (generally, my sewing is pretty tacky looking). Here's the wrong side:
And the Candle Flame Shawl:
It doesn't look that different from last time, but I love the pattern. So pretty. Mazhalai, I'm using a fingering weight yarn, and getting 5 inches per repeat, which is a total of 14 for the whole shawl. If you're using the Shimmer, it may have a different row gauge.
In other news, both the a/c and the internet are working. Apparently, our a/c unit was nearly out of freon, so they had to come recharge it, which is quite a long process. But it's fine now. Tim, Comcast sounds fabulous. The few times I've had to call Charter, it's been an ordeal. They do have an automated system, but most of the time it hangs up on you before you get to talk to a person. Whenever there's a big problem, it has a busy signal. I guess it's that or SBC around here, and SBC isn't any better.

Writing: Still at 28,000. I'm hung up on a chapter 4 scene at the moment.
Cooking: Ha! It's too darn hot. I think I may make Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream today, though.
Tomorrow: Kitty pictures!
