Got the Blues
July is blueberry month and they are very tasty this year! Last weekend our happy little family of 3 went Blueberry picking! The picking was quick and easy, which was good because the weather was HOT – almost 100 degrees! The berries were juicy and sweet with a touch of tartness – just right!
In honor of blueberry month, I have a new blue project on the needles! The pattern is called Chance of Showers and I am thinking that this will be just the right sweater to grab on days where they predict a chance of showers, but even more importantly I think this will be just the right sweater to grab on just about any day!
One of my favorite things about it is the shaping on the back. It adds a really interesting detail to otherwise simple stockinette. So far the pattern is easy, but if you’re a very new knitter you may want to save this project for later.
Overall, it’s going surprisingly fast. I’ve given myself a deadline of July 31 to finish it and I think it’s going to happen. Each night I knit as I put Brooklyn down to sleep and sometimes when it’s time for a nap. She likes to play with the cord of the needles and lets the yarn slip through her fingers and toes. It’s becoming one of my favorite times of day. I hope she loves to knit someday.
