Too hot to knit?

Here in the UK we are in the middle of a heatwave, it has been HOT, and us Brits really are not used to weather like this! I’ve always been of the opinion that it’s never too hot to knit, but I’m not sure that the big bulky jumper that I’m currently working on is the best choice of project for this weather.

Laceweight projects definitely have to be a better choice, right?

This is my latest new pattern the Cymopoleia Shawl which is available exclusively from Knit Picks, its a large circular shawl knit in Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud, which is a wonderfully soft laceweight yarn. This is an intermediate level project, worked in the round from the centre out with a knitted on border (which you can see below).

Fox Sake: a fun shawl

Have you seen my latest pattern… this is Fox Sake, a wonderfully fun shawl that is also really quick to knit.  Why is it called fox sake? Well I make a little animation to demonstrate:

The entire shawl is knit in garter stitch, with the centre V being shaped with short rows and if you’ve never tried out German short rows before then this is a great project to try them out.  You can find all the information about this pattern and also purchase it here.
