As mentioned in me post the other day, the weather in Charleston is creating a big impact on what I am choosing to knit & wear. My wardrobe is seriously lacking in warm weather apparel, and most of the fiber in my stash is wool-based. While it does get cold in Charleston during winter, there are about 5 months of high heat and humidity. This makes wearing and using wool quite impractical.
I have limited quantities of cotton & linen yarns in my stash, and I don’t exactly want to go out and spend a lot of money on random skeins. I’ve taken a page from the Fringe Association handbook and creating a thought out plan for knit projects that will truly enhance the items in my closet. I determined that I would need a few sleeveless tops, two tees, one top with longer sleeves, and perhaps a bright layering cowl for AC exposure.
This will be my working list:
– Basic crew neck shell: Klever Knits Design
– Cowl neck tank: Gretel by CocoKnits
– A-line swing tank: Klever Knits Design
– White cotton tee: Klever Knits Design
– Simple Tee: Churchmouse Yarns
– Siena Pullover: Erika Knight
– Simple Tee (longer sleeve version): Churchmouse Yarns
– Capri: Erika Knight
– McCallum Cowl: Lisa R. Myers
