Jared Flood, who blogs over at Brooklyn Tweed, offered some great advice on how to knit with wool in the hot and humid summers of the Northeast in his guest post on Knitbot. He mentions his great love of wool and how he tried to knit other fibers but always came back to his first love. Yet, how does Jared knit in the hot summers? Well, he swatches. The knit never gets too heavy or hot in his hands since he’ s knitting such small samples. Brilliant!
Long have I had a cabled stole idea brewing that I would love to knit in this merino lace yarn by Yarn Chef.
Plus, I bought this hand-spun wool yarn two years ago from the Pottstown Knit Out with the intention of knitting Mommy and Me vests.
I think I shall knit this summer after all while I test out the patterns for these projects.
