1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What size to make baby sweater? on: March 07, 2011 12:19:53 PM
Another thing to consider (though it sounds like you've already done a good bit of the knitting) would be to wait until the baby is born and then you'll know whether he/she is larger than average.  I have actually had friends whose kids were into 9 month sizes by a few months, in those cases even a 12 month size might not see much wear for a June baby.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Spring and Summer knitting; Do you put up your needles? on: March 07, 2011 12:16:14 PM
I absolutely knit all year long, though I may go at a slower pace in the summer...the long evenings make outdoor activities MUCH more appealing than in the winter.  I am lucky that the summer temperatures here are usually pretty mild.  If the daytime high hits 80 people start talking about heat waves.  I used to live in NC, where the summers were much much hotter (and more humid!) and my knitting definitely suffered for it.

I do tend to do projects in lighter weights or that can be worked on in small pieces during the summer more.  My biggest summer project ever was completing (and sewing together) 100 afghan squares.
