Summer Knitting

sweatprog

I have been making a bit of progress on my Fave Cardi.I find summer knitting super hard. It’s hot, and I don’t feel like knitting. I find that lately, most of my knitting (besides one afternoon at my parents pool) has been only at my weekly knit nights. And even that, I missed last week because of the Alouettes game, so I didn’t get much knitting done last week at all. It’s also super hard to knit while hanging out with the boys, since I’m constantly getting Quentin out of the trouble he’s in, or chasing after him (19 months is a tough age!) and so not much knitting gets done during the day. We’ll see how long it takes me to get this cardigan done. Maybe I’ll have to challenge myself to the Ravolympics? During the last Olympics, I knit a sweater in 16 days was it? The Olympics are coming up… so maybe that will be a push! I blame it on the weather.

I've been making dish cloths the last couple years ... that's all I have the patience for these days.

That look like a great sweater... Summers are harder to knit, but I still couldn't be without it .
We r getting ready to go on vacation and I already have 4 projects lined up... Can't be in a plane without knitting...
Anyways...love the sweater and love the color. It's fab!

I love the color of that sweater, it will be amazing. It will be a pretty expensive sweater in the end...and so nice!

Ooh, great colour. I agree, knitting in summer is harder. Maybe it's time to bust out the sewing machine again? :)

The sweater is going to be gorgeous! I'm working on a red cardi right now as well. It's definitely harder to knit on heavier projects in the summer. I've brought socks out to the pool last night and didn't even complete much on that.

Q is 19 months??? When on earth did that happen???

Girl! Knitting with a toddler. Not an easy task.

I haven't knit too much either. I'm SOOO behind on my shawl challenge too.
