During this past summer I found myself regularly reaching for my light down vest to throw on foggy days. When I realized that it was the same “go to” piece that I wear all winter long, I wondered why I had never designed or knit a vest! So I set out to do just that.

I designed summer fog to be the perfect layering piece for the cool nights at my summer house in Maine or the chilly winter days in my studio in New Jersey. I wanted just the right amount of ease, classic lines, my favorite textured pattern and, of course, a pocket for my phone. Finally I picked a simply stunning hand-dyed DK weight yarn from Eden Cottage Yarns. The result is a vest which I have worn more that any other since piece I have knit.
