I just joined the Spring into Summer Dishcloth Swap and will be putting together a package of nice soap and a dishcloth for a knitting pal. As part of the fun, there are a few contests going on, for one we are asked to describe our favorite summer activities. Mine are camping, hiking, swimming, knitting, going to concerts and music festivals (especially outdoors), drinking lemonade and iced tea, hanging out with friends and family, reading, shopping, gardening, playing badminton, driving in the country and learning new things. Summer is the best time to do just about anything. Whether it be reading, crafts or even cooking, you can take it outside and somehow, it’s even better.
