One of the greatest pleasures about summer is knitting outdoors!
I love having a breeze in my hair, smelling the flowers, hearing the birds while the needles work at more or less high speed. This summer in particular it has been a joy knitting outdoors - in the SHADOW! In half a lifetime (or a little bit more to be precise:)) I have seen few summers like this in Scandinavia. For weeks on end we have had the sunniest, warmest weather possible - and it has been a necessity to find shade. Happily I found the perfect place under a large pine-tree - and I was not the only one to find the place to be perfect. During my knitting-hours I had the pleasure of sharing some time with a squirrel in the top of the pine. He was so busy - chewing out kernels and seeds from the pine-cones - making a stock for the coming winter. From time to time he sent me a glance - I wonder what he was thinking!
I would have loved staying on! But my top was a fast knit - and I had to move on!
Photos are taken in Malmö later this summer. Still a little bit hot for wearing my new top - but I look so much forward to wearing this relaxed, comfortable sweater!
Great things about my new design # seamless
# could be worked top-down OR bottom-up
# length of sleeves could be adjusted to your liking
# long lines to give a maximum of flattering lines
# a Classic, relaxed, comfortable piece that can be worn for ages
# a fast result

Wishing you all a great last part of summer!
