10 Ways to Knit Through the Summer


Yesterday we went to the ballgame; Minor League Major Fun.  Awesome weather...and it got me thinking...

I love to knit all year round and here are 10 Ways to Knit All Summer Long .  (started a sock at the game) 
*Plan on Socks.  They are portable and you can give them as winter gifts.  You'll be so ahead of the game. (pun intended) 

*Don't put away your crock pot.  Crock pot meals for summer are one easy way to keep your kitchen cooler.  Crockpot cooking isn't rocket science....
and everything tastes moist.  Try a pork shoulder in root beer!

*Pack your bag for the car.  Rrrrrroadtrip!!!!  Have your travel bag ready for all those drives.  Keep a scissors, a stitch marker, a crochet hook for dropped stitches, and your sunglasses baby!

*Find a Stitch and Pitch game in your area..or organize one......
(bring your knit group to the local little league games and wow that new generation)

*Enter the State Fair.....this is on my bucket list

*Nothing says summer like COTTON.  Knit dishcloths for the Brides to Be.  

*Knit squares for a baby blanket.  No need to have anything heavy on your lap all summer long.  

*Mulching now means less weeding later = More time to knit while your garden grows.  

*Knit for those graduates in your life: college colors are always a hit.  

*Join Dee and me ...we are trying to be more fit.  Im off to the ICKY liptical as I call it now.

Memorial Day is just 25 days away...

SUMMER.. I LIVE FOR THIS.

Really? Crock pot for summer? Hmmm... I could do that.

Baby blanket squares are a good idea for not getting hot. I'm almost done with the blanket I am making now. It's roasting me out.

I never understand when people stop playing with yarn during the summer, it is year round for me, now if I could only get more time off work.

I usually put the crock pot away for the summer...I'm going to have to re-think this!!

I like to knit all year around too...and knitting with cotton is a good way to do it.

Great ideas. My crockpot will continue to get good use over summer.

Summer is SO long here.

BUT, today is simply gorgeous! There is a beautiful cool breeze and I'm going to take advantage by knitting on the porch.

This post is chock-full of great ideas! I will definitely mix in some dishcloths this summer between shawls. And baseball. Knitting + Baseball is just the best.

I just got a new Ninja crock pot thing, I"m anxious to try it out! You reminded me to pull out the cotton yanrn for dishcloths. Those are great for traveling too.

Nancy said...

A great list of tips.

I always have a pair of socks on the needles for a grab and go project.

Glad you had fun at the game.

It's been so cold that I am not sure if summer will ever get here. The planet must have shifted on its axis or something. By now it is usually steaming hot. Our heat is still on and I am writing this wearing wool socks and flannel pj's. Brrrr....

Love your knitting list. I'm a big fan of socks! I use my crock pot all year - and big salads for dinner too. Tonight we had a black and blue salad. I'm joining you on being more fit.

I'm not a bridge but I'd like a dishcloth- in beachy colors maybe? Turquoise and yellow?

That was supposed to say "bride" but Minion was trying to help by crawling on the keyboard
