I must confess, I'm really not much of a summer knitter. Although I have knit more this summer than I have in the last couple years, the needles still seem to be picked up less often in order to do more "summer-night" things - like going outside when it's dark and quiet and watering plants and looking at the stars.
I've also been poring over online fabric shops and have finally come up with a sort of mood/inspiration mix for the boys' bedroom. This animal print from Braemore is my favourite. The various shades of blue and brown are beautiful and the pattern is a little bit paisley, a teensy bit floral and graphic all at the same time! I'll do a couple throw pillows with it - not floor-length drapes or anything (although the venetian blinds have got to go). I really like it combined with the greek key or zig zag pattern.
Stay tuned...as I find time to squeeze in some sewing while my little boys are off to preschool and kindergarten (the knitting will return in good time).
