Knitting in Croatia, Montenegro and Albania2:20 PM
Summer vacation is over, and it's back to cold Finnish summer. Holiday travels in the Balkans were a success. After freezing in Finland in June and July, the heat in Dubrovnik was almost unbearable. First day of +38'C made my 4-year-old ask: "Mom, why did we come to Croatia where our blood melts?!" Well, our blood didn't melt and we got a bit more accustomed to the heat, so vacation turned out great. Swimming every day, visiting interesting places and eating delicious food. And, of course, knitting every day.
Before the trip I was having a hard time trying to decide which project to take with me. I had just finished the Lemon top, and I would have liked to have a pattern to follow for easy holiday knitting. Unfortunately, everything in my yarn stash was dedicated to my own designs, so I had to pick one and start swatching in the airplane. The yarn I chose was Quince Sparrow. I thought a linen yarn would be nice to knit even if it's hot, and it turned out to be a good decision!
