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?

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 )

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

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

I like to knit tank tops, short sleaves, socks, benies, little animals, bags, headbdns and... anything that strikes my fancy. Even if you're not going to use it, it's still fun to knit an afgan durring summer
Are you alive? Good. You can still do something

FO's: Just finished both of my pink socks. Nothing fancy, but alright.
WIP: Nothing. It's so depressing
Up Next: Purse for my friend (still need to get yarn)
