Lazy Summer Days

July 11, 2007 § 1 Comment

Summer has arrived in the Pacific Northwest without any  slow, gentle, easing into it.  Temperatures are hitting the nineties this week.  Gasp.

A few months ago I joined a knitting for charity group. It has been so much fun! I am thoroughly enjoying it. Once a month we all get together and knit or crochet, chat about knitting or crocheting, compare knitting or crocheting projects and generally spare our spouses and non-crafty friends of all the knitting and crocheting chatter.  Last month a bunch of us finished up quite a pile of washcloths that will be given to a teen half-way house.

I’ve moved on from washcloths to baby blankets.  I am loving this pattern.  It’s simple but not boring.  Interesting enough without being too challenging.  I have knit other baby blankets where I can barely keep knitting after the half-way mark because of the monotony of it all.  This pattern is Prairie Blanket by Oat Couture and you can see it here.  They have a lot of other lovely patterns too.

 

Kiska thinks this is perfect napping weather and is saving her energy for another, cooler day.  Today, she has no interest in the yarn.

    Hard to have fur in the summer!
    I love the Prairie Blanket pattern! Simple yet effective. I have an Oat Couture cardi design which I have yet to knit, but I really like the look of their patterns.
