Now that it’s officially Fall it feels like the perfect time to finally blog about this summer knit! My timing is impeccable… My Sunshine Coast is definitely my most worn summer knit so I thought I’d give another one of Heidi’s summer patterns a try and Flex did not disappoint. I still favour my Sunshine Coast, that pattern is perfection, but I think it’s the yarn selection, not the pattern that I’m less crazy about this time around. I came across this yarn online on super sale and thought I’d give it a try. It’s totally fine, just turns out that I prefer the 100% linen I used for my last summer knit. I’m a newbie when it comes to cellulose fibers and I’m glad that I tried out this new-to-me yarn so now I know more about what I like and don’t like.

I took these FO shots during a walk in the woods with my family last June. They’re just quick snaps with my phone and I feel like you can really tell. The phone’s camera had a really hard time dealing with the lush green foliage and the colours as well as the focus are both kinda off. Somedays I have time to plan real camera photo shoots sans-kids but most of the time I’m just trying to do the best with what I’ve got. Such is life!

Next on my list is patching those jeans! I bought the jeans with ripped knees because I like the fit and cut though I hate the rips. I don’t know when it happened to me but I am no longer a ripped jeans kinda gal apparently. These may be too far gone to patch well but I’m gonna give it my best shot. I’ll report back with the results!
