Summer 2011

 

Summer knitting – let me count the ways…..

 

To me, summer knitting is looking through the new spring/summer copies of all my favorite knitting magazines

 

And choosing a new pastel shade to knit my favorite cotton cardigan

 

And picking a challenging stitch for that summer shawl, especially needed for those chilly summer evenings in the garden

 

 

To me, summer knitting is all about small light projects. The kind you can carry with you everywhere, even on vacation

 

Like baby garments, and hats, and especially socks. Lots of socks

 

Summer knitting is also for catching up. On all those unfinished projects lying around and cluttering my closet

 

Summer knitting means lots of knitting time

 

In the kitchen over my first cup of coffee

On the train, or in the bus, on my way to work

On my lunch break, on my coffee break

In the doctors office, waiting for my turn

In the airport, on the plane

On the boat trip, or at the beach

At the concert in the park

In the classroom, during the lecture

Watching TV, or relaxing in the garden

Summer knitting means vacation knitting

 

Because, in the summer, the days are longer, which give me more knitting hours

 

I love summer knitting

 

So if you aren’t a summer knitter, try it. You may even love it. Like me

 

And if you are a summer knitter, spread the word. Spread our love of knitting

 

Happy Summer Knitting

 

A special thanks  to our wonderful knitters, Shmulik, Naomi, and Olga for lending us their projects.

Don’t forget to come visit us before your summer vacation, and grab a pair of birch knitting needles or a palmwood crochet hook for knitting on the plane!
