This week London has been sweltering in the heat. Noel Coward had a point and we’ve all been out in the midday sun a little too much lately. So it’s time for Britain’s favourite pastime, as we talk about the weather and what to knit when it’s hot. Plus another crazy knitted ensemble, courtesy of Sacha Baron Cohen; a fantastic animated short film featuring a knitter with whom I’m sure you’ll empathise; and the Rowan sweater that’s becoming the Sheep’s nemesis.
Of course by the time of going to press, the temperature’s back to normal and the rain has started up again, but I guess that only proves the unpredictability of the English climate…
