The British summer is well and truly with us. In the UK we have been in the throws of a heatwave. But however warm it may be, it is never too hot to knit.
One particularly welcome aspect of the summer is the arrival of the tennis grass court season. I love to watch tennis at any time of year, but there is nothing to challenge the supremacy of Wimbledon and the grass court tournaments which lead up to it.
I am a very happy bunny when I can knit in front of the tennis, as I was doing with the Aegon Championship last week at London’s Queen’s Club.
I took this opportunity to start a new knitting project. I seem to have been working on scarves/shawls/wraps forever. So I decided to cast on a little cotton bolero in this beautiful cornflower-blue yarn, which I bought from WoolWarehouse – I love the fact that the yarn arrives in this handy organza project bag (and yes, I know, I am easily pleased!).
