If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember the post I shared when I started this Summer JiJi way back on July 1. Here’s the pretty photoand the caption
I made a plan to finish the sweater by the end of the month, and I sewed on the buttons this morning (yay!) But there is no fun FO photo shoot. because this is the weather here today
I did try it on and take a few selfies in my closet … just to be sure it really fits (it does)
For now, though, my dress form is the better model. She never minds the weather
and I can get the up-close detail shots I love!
My next sweater is going to be a winter one. I ordered the yarn yesterday and hope to cast on next week. not that I’m wishing for winter … but a cool fall breeze would be really welcome right now!
And that’s a wrap for this month here on the blog … not quite for the month of July, though. I don’t have big plans for the one remaining day beyond a book and some journaling … and some much-needed time catching up with y’all. I’ll see you back here next month!

Such a pretty color. Hopefully you will be able to wear is soon – maybe to ward off the air conditioning at church! Happy Friday
That is a lovely sweater, a pretty color, and a perfect fit. I hope you get to wear it outside of your closet soon!
It’s perfect! I knew you would finish with no problems! Once the weather cooperates a bit more, I know you’ll get a ton of wear out of it, too.
That color reminds me of the zinnias blooming in my garden right now and it screams summer – I love it! We’ve got delightful weather here right now, no humidity and in the mid 60s. It’s a nice break from the excessive rain and high humidity we’ve had all month.
Temps here today were just glorious here in Pittsburgh! (But I think we are welcoming back those 90+ degree days next week… sigh) The sweater is gorgeous! Carole is right, it does scream summer! Well done!
What a sweet sweater! You made it right in time 😉 I can’t wait to see what finds its way to your needles next.
Stay cool, my friend!
Gorgeous colour which really suits you. Your weather is very hot indeed.
What a stunning cardigan. If we are going to an air-conditioned facility, I often take a lightweight cardigan. I wore one to church this morning. You knit such beautiful well-fitting sweaters and this one is no exception.
Such a lovely sweater, Mary. I love the way it looks with your stripes! 🙂
oh I do like that sweater! that is something I would wear daily.
Wonder sweater, Mary!
LOVE the color!
