Slice of Summer

3 Jun

Although the calendar doesn’t say that it’s officially summer yet, last week we hit the triple digits here in Arizona, which means that summer is well under way in our books. Luckily the weekend cooled off just a little bit, so I was able to wear this beauty to church on Sunday (air conditioning is wonderful for wearing summery hand-knits inside that would otherwise be useless in Arizona).

Pattern: Citron
Yarn: The Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors Merino Sport
in color “Avocado”
Needles: US Size 6

This pattern was simple, easy-to-follow, quick and produced a finished project that has a nice understated beauty.
I only had 400 yards of yarn, which was a little less than the pattern, so I shortened it a bit by leaving off the last repeat and shortening the ruffle. It turned out a great size, just enough to drape over the tops of my shoulders and just enough to be fastened with a pin at my neck. During the winter I’ll be able to bundle it up around my neck to look like a cozy green cowl.
