You might think it’s the possibility of sand in your projects. Or maybe overheating while knitting something. No, for me the downside to knitting during the summer is that I have to choose am I going to swim with everyone or am I going to sit poolside and knit?
Sometimes this isn’t even a question (obviously I will sit poolside and knit!), but other days it’s an absolute quandary. I love swimming. In fact, one of the best things about living in Florida is that you can swim 9 months out of the year WITHOUT needing a heated pool. I’m sure there were times when I was younger my parents were convinced that I was growing gills.
I’m so close to being done with this shawl, though! Only 28 rows to go! (And that includes the bind off, even!) So I will bring my knitting (shocker!) and knit in the car. And once I’m completely waterlogged I will dry off and knit poolside. Because if there’s anything you should have this July 4th weekend, it’s the freedom to do what you want!
