Still knitting with bulky wool in June, you ask?
Why yes, as a matter of fact, I am. One advantage of being a knitter is the ability to find some small measure of enjoyment in a crappy, cold, wet summer. I am doing my best - but it ain't easy.
Finished the body and started the first sleeve on Acer. Love it!
Btw, the Cascade Eco+ is much softer than the regular Eco - much less rustic as well.
And, speaking of Eco, I finally found a button (at Ewe'll Love It) for the Eco Vest:
I lurve this pattern - the shaping is really, really nice. It will be very wearable come fall and I definitely see another one in my future.
Now, for my next project, I'm finding myself torn between two great patterns: Bernhardt (see below), which I've already begun, but barely, and the Mondo Cable Vest/Shell from Bonnie Marie Burns, which I would do up in DIC Classy as a vest, like this. Oh, decisions, decisions...
Is your head also spinning from all the new patterns out there?? I think maybe I just need to stop looking.
So, what are you working this summer? Do you keep knitting or take a break for the heat? Or do you change the things you knit?
And PS More sexy Baktus to come. (Take it to the bridge!)
