How to hold onto knitters’ interest over the steamy months of summer–the critical and perennial challenge for anyone in the yarn/knitting business. Linen pieces, definitely. (See Sparrow.) After that, things in a lightweight wool–Chickadee, say, or Tern?
I’m thinking that shrugs are good. And little cardigans. Thinking, too, because of a request–that I’ll ask Cecily Glowick to adapt the lovely Judith shrug (above) to a small cardi. I wouldn’t mind it with a few buttons. Maybe 3/4 sleeves. Thoughts?
Me? I’m in a cotton tank top most of the time, but once the sun goes down, I’m looking for sleeves and buttons. And unsexy as they are, a pair of socks.
