Hi friends! July has been HOT! I am grateful for air-conditioning! I think our sweet little pug is too. They have a harder time cooling off than most dogs since they have the smushed in noses. We have to wait until it's later in the evening and has cooled off some to take her out for walks. It's been a nice addition to our summer though, both Syd and Waddles (the pug) seem to enjoy it.
July's squares feature a triangle lace stitch pattern. This is one of the more unique stitch patterns out of all of the blocks this year. It's not particularly challenging, but pay close attention to the beginnings and endings of rows 5 & 6. In the picture below, triangle lace is combined with a basic trellis stitch in the Saffron Lace Infinity Scarf.
