My mom lives in Houston, where I hear it's hot and humid most of the year. But that doesn't stop her from knitting—a lot. True, my kids are the lucky recipients of a good number of her handmade sweaters, but she does knit for herself too.
For a while after she moved to Texas (from the Midwest) she seemed to adjust her knitting style to the climate, focusing mostly on lightweight fibers and straying towards wool jackets only occasionally.
But I think sometimes she just can't resist a pattern—even if it means that she'll only be able to wear the finished sweater when she's visiting me or one of my brothers.
Chambord Truffle by Army of Knitters. And let me tell you, it's seriously gorgeous.
I think it's so great that she made such a lovely sweater for herself—something we should all do more often I imagine.
