Hot weather projects

We're having warmer weather now in Southern California and I'm just 2/3's of the way finished with a double-knit afghan using worsted weight wool yarn. I just couldn't bring myself to work on it last night.

I tried working on a scarf I am making with slightly heavier than fingering weight cotton yarn. The pattern I started with which is a dropped stitch wave pattern just wasn't working with this yarn. I ripped it back and put in some more rows of knit between the wrapped stitch rows and it still didn't look good. I'm guessing the cotton was just too heavy, but it could be that my needles (using US7) weren't big enough.

What are others doing as hot weather projects?
