Someone asked me the other day why I hadn’t posted in a while and it was honestly because I have been resting. So much of the last year has felt like I’m always trying to recover and when my summer break started I decided I needed to rest. I knit, I read books, I have been taking the dogs on long walks, visiting family, making ice cream…all at whatever pace works for me. I don’t often get to set my own pace, so I’ve been intentionally slowing down. So what have I knit so far?
I briefly mentioned my Lapponia sweater in my last post. I decided to knit this in Ritual Dyes Undine (linen and cotton blend fingering weight) and Birdie’s Knits fingering weight cotton yarns. I really do love cotton and linen knits because I can wear them all year. This is light and breezy and I’ve worn it over a slip dress or just on it’s own.
I also knit a newly released pattern, Phases by Jennifer Berg. I really loved knitting Sheep Camp so I scooped up her phases sweater and knew I had lots of leftover cotton yarns in my stash that I could use for this pattern and wear it immediately.
Kiwi has also been super helpful while I knit. She also makes me realize that sometimes you have to slow down just to snuggle your puppy, right? So what have you been working on this summer?
