I like to switch from wool to lighter fibers like cotton, silk, soy or bamboo.

Summer is a great time to do some stash busting. You can take some of your odd balls and knit them together on big needles to make interesting shawls or scarves to give as gifts (or keep for yourself).

There are many books on stash busting:
