Sometimes the heat can be a little easier to deal with when you have a knitting project just waiting for those moments when you need to slow down a little. Preferably near a fan.
This project was from my copy of Debbie Bliss' Ultimate Book of Baby Knits. In a happy, custardy yellow colour in pure new wool.
Yes, another project for Violet. I'm afraid there's a bit of knitting favourtism going on here.
Please don't look to closely. I'm not entirely happy with how it turned out, but I do believe this is more a reflection on myself (and school holiday distractions) than the pattern itself.
It is a little too big. But not to worry.
And of course right after this picture our shrug was ripped straight off by the little model. Afterall it is hard work modelling knitwear for Mum in Summer.
Do you knit in Summer?
