Fun Knit and Crochet in the Summertime!!

Summer is nearly upon us and there is no need to put down your needles!  I have been working on some light and fun projects to welcome the warm weather.20170519_120531

I was so inspired by the Summer 2017 issue of Knitscene Magazine! The cover tank top called my name, as did Queensland Savannah Yarn in minty green and black.  The yarn is made of a yummy combo of linen and silk.  It has a beautiful drape and feels great against my skin!20170519_120506

So, we’ve had Katia’s Washi  and Washi Print yarn (a bamboo, polyester machine washable tape) in the store and I’ve been dying to make a summer hat.

It crocheted up in a couple of hours and I was so surprised by how pliable the brim came out!  Word got out and everyone at the store started making one for themselves.

Bonus:  The pattern is free with purchase of yarn (we’ll send it with an online order, or come in the store)!

Enjoy your lazy, hazy, breezy fiber filled summer!
