Lately the weather around here has been improving ever so slightly and I am beginning to hope for an actual summer. Hopefully spent by the sea wearing lots of knits! Maybe that doesn’t sound like signs of a sunny, warm summer, but I am seeing so many amazing knitted tops everywhere just now and it’s probably my favourite thing. There are 90’s inspired halters, loads of cropped numbers and mostly just a lot of breezy feeling stitches. I want to get in on the action, so right now I am swatching for a raw silk top that me and my awesome friend Amalie came up with on a little impromptu knit retreat weekend we had a couple of weeks ago. If you’re curious you can check out the swatch on my very new Instragram account right here (or in the sidebar where I added an Instafeed). I also made a little Summery pinterest board if you want some more inspiration for warm weather knits. You can find that here.
What are your summer knitting plans? Do you knit with summery fibers or continue using wool? Do you stop knitting completely?
