It's almost too hot to knit

Hooray for air conditioning - otherwise there would be no knitting around these parts from May through October.  I guess I have to expect that Houston will be terribly hot from now until the fall.  Ugh!

Good thing I usually knit with cotton!  My current project is Cherry knit in Svale.  I'm loving it!


The top picture shows the actual color.  The bottom picture is a close up of the stitch pattern.  It's so cute and keeps things from getting too boring!


I'm also very excited to be taking a few sewing classes this summer.  A sewing lounge opened up in Houston and I think this will be a great way to finally find out if I'm doing things correctly when I sew!  I'm betting that I'm not. :)


I love that Cherry pattern - can't wait to see yours! And thanks for the link to Sew Crafty - what a cool new business.

Cute sweater - love the color!

Did you happen to sign up for the (Saturday) June 7 Intro to Sewing class? That's the one I'm taking! I'm pretty excited too.

I love that texture! And color- and Svale too. That will be a great little sweater for our warm weather...

Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments. I am having fun :-)

Cherry is looking nice! A sewing class sounds like lots of fun. I really wish we had better sewing places around my area. It's either Joann fabrics or nothing.

Ha ha, I know what you mean about AC! And I don't knit with a lot of cotton as I prefer wool (which is pretty crazy).

Cherry is looking great so far.

Good luck with your sewing class! I'm jealous of your heat. It is just now getting to be 70 here.

The sweater looks great so far. I can't wait to see what you learn in your sewing classes!
