    Summer knitting is relaxed and easy.  Short sleeves or no sleeves means you're not on sleeve island - at least not for very long, anyway. I love summer fibers too.  In this latitude, summer garments are actually seasonless.  I wear my blue Triton all year long - it looks as nice with cropped linen trousers as  with slim wool trousers. It’s always perfect. Same with various shells and tanks I’ve knit - like my new favorite, the Staple Linen Top in Queen City Coleman

    I’m anxious to see the garments from the current Noro Knitting Magazine - that trunk show will be here early next month. I’m especially interested in the garments knit in Asaginu, the lovely new linen and paper yarn from Noro that I featured on a recent podcast, The garments in the magazine are knit at the gauge recommended on the yarn label (18 stitches per 4 inches), but I like Asaginu much better at a tighter gauge.  My goal is a fabric that’s open enough for a breeze but not so open that you need another layer under it. 

    I’ve decided on ELAN, by Shellie Anderson. I like it for  the same reasons I like Triton - easy to knit, easy to wear, and perfectly appropriate for every occasion all year long.  And it will be perfect in Asaginu. And I’m super excited to have Shellie joining me for the kickoff which we’ll do live on YouTube, Saturday, August 6th at 4 pm Eastern time.
