Summer Yarns & Free Patterns!

Posted on July 15 2015

Summer is in full effect, especially here in Petaluma. Hot and humid! With everything in bloom, I am constantly inspired to create... even knit on a 90 degree day. Knitting is not only for making winter things. So many lovely yarns that lend themselves to light weight projects. Habu yarn, Twirl yarn, Be Sweet, Classic Elite, and so many more.

And projects... tank tops, loose knit shawls, lacy pullovers, even a crochet bathing suit! IMG_9915
