Summer is here and it shows in the yarns and projects that you are choosing. I'm still knitting with wool because I have to finish some things before I succumb to starting anything else. The Knit Kimono book has really got my attention, but that isn't an overnight project for me. Yesterday, a customer chose fingering weight Lyndon Hill Silk and Cotton from Plymouth to knit the Modular Quilt Scarf!!! I think that is a fabulous idea, and I may have to copy her.

Below are two things I finished on my days off this week. The Garter Stitch Vest, from Folk Vests, was the easiest vest I knit until I tried to do something different with the collar and lapels. For me, by the book is the way to go everytime. I bet I tore it out three times....

Folk Vests Garter Stitch Vest. What shall my next project out of this great book be????

Shop number three Silk and Wool; easy, fast, satisfying, and what a great baby gift!!!

Below is a detail of Anne's second clapotis ofWoolbearers hand dyed worsted weight cotton. It will be perfect for a cool, summer night!
