Thoughts of Summer Knitting

Over the weekend I was able to pick up the summer issues of Interweave Knits and Knit.1 - and I didn't even have to leave town! I have already read the Knit.1 issue cover to cover. It's their green issue and I have to say it's a really excellent issue. There were lots of interesting articles on alternative fibers (not just wool!) and some great projects. I haven't gone through the Interweave issue as closely but I think I will end up making the Summertime Tunic.

It's also time for another Summer of Socks and I'm really excited to be participating this year. First off I have tons of wonderful sock yarn I've been wanting to work with and I feel much more confident in my sock knitting skills compared to last year. The KAL doesn't start until June 21st (THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER!!) but I plan to sit down this weekend and choose the patterns and yarns I plan to work with. I know I want to make a pair of Jaywalkers and several Knitty patterns I've printed off plus I have the great pattern I got from my Sock Kit pal last year that's been ready to go forever. I can't wait for the start date!
