This is how I’ve been spending time of late… Yes, that’s right. I’m knitting hats. In the summer.
Hats are ideal summer knitting, for a number of reasons: they are small and very portable, easy to throw into your beach bag or suitcase. And hats are mostly plain and simple knitting, which means they are well suited to knitting in the car on a roadtrip, or by the soft light of an evening campfire, or while distracted talking to friends or enjoying a frosty beverage.
Hats are also excellent summer knitting because you know you will be ready the moment the weather takes a turn for the worse.
