I dropped Bobbi off at his new home this weekend (sigh). The good news is that I had a chance to sit, knit and chat with some of my favorite knitting friends including Mary Heather and Julia. I also made a new friend, Marnie who I felt that I already knew since I frequently read her blog. Julia was wearing one of Marnie's beautiful designs, Deciduous Cami which I immediately added to my list of Summer Sweaters. I already have some Rowan Calmer in my stash so it was obviously meant to be.
So far, my Summer Sweaters knitting is going well. The Roundabout Leaf Tank is coming along nicely and is fun to knit. Tivoli is knitting up rather quickly and I am loving Cathay. I made a silly mistake at the armholes though. I was supposed to cast on 20 stitches but I only cast on 17 stitches under the arms. However, I tried it on and it fits so I'm moving on. Too often I fail to pay close enough attention to the pattern instructions and end up making careless mistakes.
Now all I need is a cute boy and tropical island to visit to wear all of my summer knits.
