All that glitters…

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!
