I'm particularly excited to be house-bound today, because it's 108°F (42°C) today! This weather is more suitable for iced tea than hot tea, but both are acceptable beverages for knitting.
I used to be much more a yarn snob, but lately I've found the cheap craft store acrylic perfectly useful for household items that I expect to get a lot of wear. Perhaps this is due to lately finding a few brands which are of a rather high quality, with a rich and interesting color palette. Or, I've been converted because most of my recent projects have been intended for babies, and goodness knows that wool is wasted on them. Still, I am a lover all of animal-based fibers, and I'm planning on using pure wool for my next sweater project.
I hope that next week, I'll have some photos of the squares being sewn together. What are you working on this Wednesday?
