It's heating up again!
Whew! It is hot again. Not as bad as the last heat wave but summer is still hanging on. I got to do something really cool. I was asked to make a replica of a vintage Ken sweater called Hiking Holiday. I was sent the original and had a great time working out the stitches and pattern. I found some fantastic hemp blend yarn in a nice weight and used size 0 needles. I'm waiting to hear from the buyer so I can get it sent back. Here are the photos I took of the sweater I made and the original, as well as a pair of leather sandals I made for the order too.
