What I Knit This Summer

You'd think that the hot, dry summer wouldn't bring out the knitter in a person.  Au contraire.   It's been much more like ...

The beastly heat keeps us inside as much as possible.  Might as well knit.  Here's the tally from June and July:


One Cornelia Mee design from 1846, updated as a beach bag in Lilly Pulitzer-y colors.  The yarn is Rowan Amy Butler Belle Organic Aran (50% Wool, 50% Cotton).  Easy, fun, quick, and the yarn's composition keeps it from being too heavy but with the hand of cotton.

One Bermuda Scarf, a great way to practice short rows.  The yarn is Handmaiden Swiss Mountain Sea Sock, a heavenly mix of 51% Silk, 29% Superwash Merino, 20% Seacell.  






One Kysmik Vest in dark blue Mmmmmmalabrigo, hold the runes, Viking good luck symbol instead.


Two pairs of Crowley socks by Socktopus, my new favorite sock pattern for summer mansocks.
