So, what to do? My answer is usually: Cotton or small or quick or all of the above.

Some random tips for making yarn-crafting bearable during the warmer months:
- Drink more water! (basically my solution for everything)
- Put your project and/or yarn into a bag so they don't get fuzzies all over you
- invest in a spray bottle from the Dollar Store or something, mist yourself like an orchid when you get hot
- stick to smooth fibers like cotton, linen, hemp, bamboo, viscose
I'm getting ready to make a few pairs of cotton socks. Keepin' it cool and small.
Has summer crafting season reached you yet? Got any more tips? Because you know we're not just gonna stop just because it's hot!
