Summer knitting


The Little Child’s Sock pattern from Nancy Bush’s Knitting Vintage Socks, in Jill Draper‘s marvelously soft sock yarn. I wanted to knit something more intricate because this yarn is special, but travel knitting needs to be easy or I’ll make lots of mistakes while I’m chatting with new friends. Finished sock #1 on the lawn at SolarFest last weekend. (Ravelry link.)


I have such a knack for finishing winter sweater projects in the middle of the summer! I started this one (the Lily of the Valley cardigan from Rowan 45, heavily modified–Ravelry link here) in February, and wearing it prompts happy memories of both knitting with my new friend Kate at an Edinburgh café and going to see Harry Potter at midnight last Friday. (You need a cozy sweater up here most nights, so I guess finishing it in June wasn’t so silly.) I’m going to blog about this one once I get more photos.

    Ah, beautiful! I want to take some credit since I saw both of these projects in progress… makes sense, doesn’t it? MWAH!

    That sweater is making me hot just looking at it 😉 They both look great!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
