Summer report

It's already September and although I don't go to school anymore, I feel like evaluating my knitting this summer!  It certainly isn't an A, but the teacher would certainly mention that at least, this summer I knitted and made some good progress.  Yes, and I have to say that I don't understand why I had stopped knitting completely in the past in summer. 

So this summer, I've completed Thermal and I've also knitted a new pair of socks with yarn I had bought last summer.  I also finished the exterior of the Douglas Mittens and started the lining.  Since it starts in the inside, it does not show, but I'm already at the start of the thumb.

 
I've also started the Jaywalkers with the Super Bambou I bought at Biscotte & Cie last summer too.  They are a lot of fun to knit (the colors are nicer than in this photo)!

And I'm also planning for a secret baby knit (I have yet to choose the yarn) and my next sweater/cardigan.  For the latter, I change my mind all the time.  Will it be Featherweight Cardigan, Mountain View Cardigan, Tea LeavesCastelgar Cardigan or something else?  There are so many beautiful and wearable nice patterns out there!  I'm thinking about some nice yarn like Malabrigo or Madelintosh so that this loooong process is enjoyable!  I'm also thinking light gray.  We'll see!

Happy September!

Oh nice sweater candidates! I like them all too but I think the Mountain View Cardi is my favorite! and you can't go wrong with light gray.

i love your thermal sweater. i don't think i'll ever have the patience to make one, as much as i want to...
my fave of the sweaters is Tea Leaves. Castelgar is a close second.

Knitting in the summer is always hard for me. But you are great at it. Your projects are looking good.

Tes choix sont tous beaux mais le Tea Leaves ! En plein mon style ! :-)

Susan said...

Hm... Thats a tough choice! They are all so cute, tea leave is so popular right now, I see it at every knitting store, its beautiful. Love the pattern/color of your new sock project.

Thanks for posting, we miss you when you gone (guilt!)

This was the first summer my knitting slowed down dramatically (of course, my quilting speeded up, heh). Still, you knit a pair of socks!!! Go you! And I agree, there are so many great cardigan patterns out there, one hardly knows where to start!

Hmmm. I quite like the Castelgar cardi, but that Mountain View one is a stunner.

Hi, guapa!!!!!!
You did a good job this summer, love these jaywalker and of course, the mittens are really cute.
I guest I fail my summer knitting exam, three easy hats and a man cardigan (this one was supposed to be finished in march and still doesn't have the zipper!!!!!). I have been a lazy knitter!!!!
