I like to knit tank top or sundresses for my little girl..along with socks and dish rags... I really don't change to much I don't guess.. cause I only do baby afghans get bored with anything larger... and then I only do them for showers so not that many...
I actually usually switch to crochet in the summer, you can made lovely lacy crochet tops to where over tank tops, very popular. I understand that you can convert crochet patterns to knit patterns though I have never tried. I usually do my summer things in a very light cotton or cotton acrylic. I made a darling crochet dress for my niece last year. You could look in the crochet magazines and then see if you can covert the patterns!
Lace is the best thing to knit in summer! Light weight and very airy.
ooooh! Good idea!
I've noticed that I don't actually knit much during the summer. I guess I find the wool too hot to knit. I keep going through spring with cotton yarn, but just stop complete once it gets really hot. It must be a "comfort" connection for me.
I actually enjoy summer knitting more than winter, I make a BUNCH of summer tops, tanks, short sleeves, etc. And sometimes some purses. I've always preferred cotton, silk and linen knitting to wool though
