After having a terrible Springtime with rain and cold weather we now have real summer, with temperatures near 40°C/100°F. And we are not really used to such temperatures in Germany, but I loooooove it.
As you are able to see, Pierre needs a little bit of finishing.
Here a detail of the stripe pattern
I used Creative Linen last year to knit Crete a design by Martin Storey.
Ok, and I knitted it and I unraveled it and I knitted it and I unraveled it and I knitted it and here is the actual result. Vidal also needs a little bit of finishing:
And I changed the back of Vidal, see here the “side seams”:
As you see I have to do a lot before Summer 2013 is over. But we are expecting more hot weather the next days. So I will be surely able to wear Pierre and Vidal this Summer.
At the end of July many of us knitters (and crocheters or crafters) already are thinking about Autumn and Winter (maybe Christmas).
What are you going to knit for this season?
Here are some inspirations from my fellow Rowan Yarns Ambassadors:
Anja aka IamSnowFox is knitting the Gap-Tastic Cowl a design by Rowan Yarns Ambassador Jen Geigley aka MakeXDo using new Rowan Yarn Thick’n Thin. And it is a free pattern to download on Ravelry. Check it out!
Maria is knitting Ashridge also with Rowan Alpaca Colour a design by Lisa Richardson.
Linda has played with Rowan Angora Haze and has knitted some cute beaded cuffs. Check it out!
So what’s on your needles for the autumnal season?
