Summer’s around the corner…does that mark the end of knitting season for the year? No way! It might be time to put aside the chunky sweaters and afghans, but I love knitting small things in the warmer months, because it can be so portable. You can toss a sock project or small scarf in your beach bag, and work while you catch some rays. And summer is particularly good for adding bright accent pieces and non-wool fibers to your wardrobe, like this:
This scarf is a quick knit that is a lot of fun to make and even more to wear, with its bright hue and delicate sparkles running throughout. Its one-row lace pattern is simple enough to be TV knitting, but looks impressive. Need a Mother’s Day gift for Mom or Grandma? There’s still plenty of time to give the gift of something handmade!
