What do you knit in the summer?
When it gets hot (especially in hot & HUMID S. TX), I just tend to want to put away the yarn. What do YOU knit in the summer?

In summer I like to use cotton a lot. Usualy tanks, smaller things for my DD ( she likes cotton knitted skirts) or pillows. I also crochet more during the summer

Am I the only one who realizes that if I don't start knitting Christmas presents and sweaters in the summer that no one will get gifts and I will be cold in the fall? :??

Susan (who is always trying to be a season ahead. I knit my cotton sweaters at the end of winter so I have stuff to wear in the spring and summer too.)

Lol I agree with you Susan! If I don't start soon I will be behind on the holiday knitting, etc.
Actually I am ALWAYS behind on that anyway lol.. (I get sidetracked by pretty yarn and potention projects easily :teehee: )

If you want to knit something "cooler," there's always socks and perhaps lovely lacy projects.

I am knitting year round now because I seem to always have something going. Why not try something that is not yarn, like the ribbon stuff. It might be more comfortable. I just finished a ribbon top for summer and it was nice and slippery! lol

I crank the AC up and knit away on whatever I like. Who cares how high the electricity bill may get - I'm enjoying myself :teehee:

This past summer I did alot of knitting with cotton and cotton blend yarns. But this summer i bet i will be knitting shawls that I didn't get to over the winter. Summer is like any other season as far as knitting goes with me...I knit whatever strikes my fancy :wink:
