Summer yarns

It’s hotter than August and it’s only the second week in June!  What gives?  Maybe it’s global warming, but the good news is that there’s still time to knit something cool – summer garments are terrific because they work up fast with short sleeves or no sleeves! Try this sweet little cardigan in shiny cool, Phoenix or Pertinio for a little sparkle.

or maybe this short-sleeved tee in Lindsey
Or this sweet little sleeveless shell in any number of dk weight yarns like Sublime Egyptian Cotton dk or Hempathy
These are all tried and true patterns from Knitting Pure and Simple.  We love this pattern line because they’re mainly worked up in one piece for smooth knitting in the round and minimal finishing.  It’s simple, relaxing knitting because it’s just too hot to think very hard!
