In between re-doing the landscape, planning and planting the vegetable, running the household, and working full-time at the Voice of America, I managed to finish two summer tops, thanks to Summer Tweed. Here is a top I (sort of) designed.
Another quick knit is the Sunshine sweater from the Kasbah Collection everybody is knitting.
The original pattern is one that Penny uses in her beginner knitting class. Yes, at the Yarn Barn, you knit a sweater, with cable, in your beginner's class! I used the Rowan Summer Tweed, turned it into a sleeveless vest/shell, did it in stripes and changed the original horseshoe cable to braided cables. It was a quick knit.
I started early last week:
Lastly, the mailman delivered my Socks that Rock! that I wasn't able to get at the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival. The color way is Lunasea. I got three skeins of the medium weight. No I am not knitting three pairs of socks in the same colorway. This is going to be my first Charlotte's Web shawl.
