Holla Knits Summer Blog Tour Part One

Summertime is hot time.
And outside time.
And travel time.

An often heard refrain amongst knitters is that these warm months pose us issues. What to knit? How do we fit the square peg of our heat-retaining craft into the round hole of the blazing hell heat of summer?

I'm on board with you there, my friends. I find summer challenging. But, I put my thinking cap on and came up with a list of tips and tricks to allow you to engage in this wondiferous craft of ours while still (suffering? enjoying?) the heat.

You'll find tips on:

knitting on a boat
knitting while camping
knitting while travelling
And much more!

This issue of Holla Knits is filled with other fantastic articles and patterns, all with the pop of fun that you know HK will bring. Want to get your hands on your own copy?

I'll be GIVING AWAY a free pdf of the entire magazine to one lucky knitter. All you have to do is comment on this post and tell me what you're up to this summer! REMEMBER to leave me a way to contact you. You can enter until Wednesday June 24. Winner announced June 25.

Good luck!

To kick off summer, I'm going to Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene tomorrow. Otherwise, I'm enjoying the Oregon berries from my farmers market and hoping to get out and do some hiking and camping.

I'm working a lot this summer. We just got back from a vacation in Seattle, and now it's back to the grind for the summer! I do a lot more music work over the summer in addition to my day job, so that's a nice creative outlet - I'm probably playing in the pit orchestra for two or three musicals before the summer ends. I'm ShadowAP on Rav if you need to contact me =)

Since stopping knitting is not an option I will be visiting Iceland for some volcano and Lopi knitting time. We will be road tripping in a camper van for two weeks and knit knit knit.

This is the year I get my yard in shape and garage tidy and organized. That should do it for me - with a few small knitting project rewards thrown in to keep my spirits up.

This summer I'm working on knitting my oldest daughter a new wardrobe for preschool, which she'll be starting this fall. It's bittersweet!

I'm vernalequinox on Ravelry.
