Friday Round-UP

Need some project inspiration going into the weekend? I’ve collected some pretty pictures that have floated by on social media during the week.

Don’t you find that looking at other people’s projects often gets you fired up to work on your own?

There are a lot of small projects, which are great for summer knitting because they are so small and portable.

This eyecatching garment is the Swallowtail Vest by Yarns by HomePlace Farms, a local yarn store in Alabama. It created quite a sensation when I shared it on our Facebook page!

It uses a mix of yarns we represent and the store has kits in various colorways all ready to go. Or you can buy the pattern alone on Ravelry.

I spotted this great hat on the Cynthia’s Too! Facebook page. The pattern is the “Phoncible Hat” from Ravelry.

She used two skeins of Noro Silk Garden yarn, a 45% Silk, 45% Mohair, 10% Lambswool blend, and added the flowers for a bit of whimsy. Accessories like that are a great way to add extra interest to a project.
