I like openwork shawls to carry with me as I find many restaurants and movie theatres over air conditioned.... dishcloths are always a big hit and a great way to practice new stitches......socks...........felted bowls .........a stash of baby blankets so when you friends become factories all at the same time you don't have to knit every spare second of every day at hyperspeed......

I like making afghans with blocks mostly. Also make dishcloths. I made some dishcloths but they were too nice to use, so I put them together and made a small cover to display.

Last summer, I made a pair of footsies. Very easy and wearable, given the heat. I also like to knit lace patterns...stuff that's not too heavy.

I tend to knit with cotton yarn during the warmer months. I do doilies, kitchen items, bags, purses, and things like that. I even crochet so when its warmer I mostly crochet doilies with crochet thread.

I don't knit much in the summer. But if I do, it's usually baby stuff or socks. Hats work too. Anything that won't sit in your lap.

tank tops, skirts, and t-shirts

Lacy scarves, shawls, cotton chenille washcloths are good for summer, although I tend not to pay too much attention to the seasons while knitting.

Socks, purses, a vest for a Christmas gift, a sweater for me for the fall, and stuff for the kids.
