Kamloops is in the midst of a heat wave. Yesterday it got up to 37.4°C (99.4°F), and it looks like it might go even higher today. This is not the kind of weather you want to be knitting a super bulky weight sweater in, so I was very happy to cast this off the day before the hot weather arrived. The problem was the sweater needed to be washed and blocked before I could get pictures, which meant modelling it after the heat wave got here.
On Sunday morning, before things heated up too much, Rebekah and I went outside to get these shots.
It seemed a bit strange to be wearing such a heavy sweater along with shorts and my Crocs, but the thought of putting on jeans for the picture made me feel faint.
I knit this with Spud & Chloe Outer. After knitting a couple of hats with the Spud & Chloe I was hooked. I searched Ravelry for a pattern and found Polly Pullover, which is written specifically for this yarn. I love its simplicity! I think it will be perfect for the milder climate we are moving to. Yes, it is a super bulky yarn, but the short sleeves should keep it from being too warm. One thing I can say for certain - it won't keep me as warm as it did the day this picture was taken!
Fergus doesn't seem to mind the heat, which might have something to do with the fact he spends most of the day inside our air conditioned house.
Ravelry details here. Enough procrastinating...I need to go do some more packing.
