Currently, it’s really hot in my part of the world … so hot, in fact, that I really don’t feel like knitting, especially not something like scarfs, cowls, fingerless gloves or other things that I usually like.
One of the few yarns that can be knitted comfortably in high summer is cotton … and a project that is sufficently “summery” is a doily or coaster. For this one, I tried to do a bit of shaping to get rectangle. This was actually a test knit for a bath rug I wanted to make out of t-shirt yarn, but I didn’t like the shaping for that purpose. However, the piece can be used as a doily, as a washcloth or as a potholder.
