Welcome to week seven of the Easy-Breezy Summer Stitch-Along. A simple craft project can be the perfect accompaniment to a summer road trip, an afternoon in the bleachers at a soccer game, or a relaxing few hours under your favourite tree. This is a low-key stitch-along with a focus on fun, not stressful deadlines! I am making slow but steady progress on Sweater #7. I must admit that the super-hot weather doesn't do much for my interest in knitting – or doing anything at all! But it's coming along. I did get some good (and blissfully air-conditioned!) knitting in over the past 24 hours, when I travelled to New York city to preview all the exciting things that Michaels has in store for Christmas 2012. This was just the beginning – it was very festive! I've got lots more good stuff to share with you next week. And I was extra lucky to have some spare time – enough for a pilgrimage to Purl Soho. And the timing was perfect to check out the launch party for the new Liberty of London lifestyle collection. More about that next week, too, but here's a sneak peek. It was great – a little breath of fresh air and inspiration that was just what I needed. Where have your summer travels taken you and your stitching lately?
