What's your summer knitting project? I'm on my way back home to Norway for my summer holiday and just popped by the shop to make sure I have enough yarn for my summer knits. It seems like I've got sleeves issues these days, as this is what's left to do on several of my projects, and now I hope to finish them while on holiday. Something I made sure to pick up from the shop is the Lantern Moon 'Stitch Red' Square Clip Knitting Bag
, which is brilliant for travelling. It is spacious, which allows for several projects and yarn balls, and all bits and pieces are easily stored in practical pockets.
I'm completely addicted to tote bags and seriously have no idea of how many different ones I've got already, but when spotting the Will Flirt for Gin tote at Of Cabbages & Kings
I just fell so in love with it that I had to have it. Not only is it really cool, it is sturdy to, so that I can easily bring my project with me when we're out and about.
This is Larch by Amy Christoffers
, which I'm doing on 3mm needles in Scrumptious 4 Ply - Jen's Green
. The large Stockinette Stitch sections have been a huge test for my patience, but as you can see the body is done and I've started the sleeves. I love love love this design and how it comes out in my chosen yarn, I really can't wait to have it done and to wrap myself in it!
When travelling I try to bring varied projects to prevent me from getting bored, and since Larch is done with thin yarn and needles, I want to bring a quick knit too. This is my Make-it-up-as-I-go-Cardi. It is done on 5mm needles in the softest Pima cotton, Shiny Happy Cotton from Wool and the Gang
, in Yellow Brick Road and Jog Grey. This is definitely my favourite project this summer. Look at that yellow! Every time I start a yellow round the brightness of this colour makes me so happy!
As I was taking these pictures to show you my summer knits I had this idea. I really want to see your projects, and where you are bringing them too. Lets share our summer knits with each other, and why not make an Instagram Give Away out of it as well! Follow my Instagram
and use hashtag #kwasummer to show off your summer knits, when I return to London in two weeks time I'll make a little gallery here on the blog for us all to admire. We'll do a draw and three of you will receive a summery goody bag from Knit with attitude. Now go grab those smart phones and start snapping some pics, I can't wait to see what you are up to this summer!
