Last summer I knit my sister a lace cardigan out of a cotton sock weight yarn and my dad a grocery bag out of a thick hemp. The cardigan was a fabulous project but I don't actually recommend knitting with hemp. It's rather unforgiving and harsh on the hands.
This summer I have plans for a couple of lace projects, some projects in cotton, and perhaps even little projects out of wool. Definitely no sweaters until the temperature cools again!
The one thing that I haven't mastered is beach knitting. Any ideas for something that I can knit in the bright sun and sand?
In other news, I matted and framed this photo for my grandma's birthday this weekend! Hope she likes it.
