Summer Shrug

I have a few projects in progress but I did finish one! My summer shrug is in the process of being blocked. I think it will be a nice little sweater to have handy during the summer when air conditioning gets too cold. It was fairly easy to knit. Due to the loose fit, I didn't have to worry too much about proper fitting. I'm not very good at fitting knitted items. I'd rather knit a scarf or pair of socks where fitting isn't so crucial.

We've been watching the Boston Bruins during Stanley Cup finals. I finished this cute little hexagon last night while watching the game! I think hexagons are great projects during the summer. They're nice, small and not too hot! It's storming out so I think I'll stay in and find something else to sew!

    1. Thanks, Sally! Where have you been?? Haven't heard from you lately!!

  2. Love the shrug. I always like to have a lightweight sweater on hand when I go anywhere with air conditioning. (Gawd! I sound like such an old lady!)

    1. I must sound old too since I knit myself one! Haha!!

  3. Well done, love the bright colours in the hexie.

    Cheers Pauline


Starting Step Down Quilt

Here are my first 2 rows of Step Down Quilt. The directions are a little bit quirky but I'm catching on! There are 5 rows of blocks...
