Summer means sitting by a body of water larger than a kiddie pool and sipping some sort of iced beverage while I knit. If I wasn’t a knitter I’d probably be a fisherman. Both require patience though one requires you to be a little more still than the other. I try to keep my Summer projects small and I like working on things that are light and airy like lace or things made with sport or DK weight cotton or bamboo. It’s nice to have fiber projects that are cool to the touch on those hot and sticky days where you’d prefer gazpacho over fried chicken. I’ve even considered putting my knitting in the freezer for a bit just so it was cool enough to the touch that it feel refreshing to touch.
