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.
They used Ella Rae Classic Superwash Wool, a 100% wool yarn with 220 yards per ball that is available in a slew of colors.
They used one skein of Araucania Malipulli yarn, a soft 35% Cotton, 25% Bamboo, 30% Linen, 10% Silk blend available in eight hand painted colorways.
This is another great project from The Modern Eww. Cheryl is modeling her “Tie One On Shawl” from Knitty.com.
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.
Aren’t these Baby Surprise Jackets in such happy colors? They are a customer project from Juniper Place Yarn (Facebook page), a local yarn store in Pennsylvania.
She used Sirdar Summer Stripes yarn, an easy care 60% Cotton, 40% Acrylic blend with approximately 172 yards per 50g ball.
The Baby Surprise Jacket is a famous pattern by Elizabeth Zimmermann.
Nordlys is a fingering weight, self-striping 75% Superwash Wool, 25% Nylon blend that is great for garments and socks. Contact the store for more information about the scarf!
We’ve had so much rain in the Northeast, the closest we get to sunshine is a happy yellow yarn like this Droplet! This yarn is a cotton blend from Euro Yarns that has beads already attached so you can get to the fun of knitting.
This scarf in progress is at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop (Facebook page), a local yarn store in Oregon. Contact them for more pattern info!
If you are starting to think about knitting a transition piece for the fall weather, Woolstock Yarn Shop, a local yarn store in Maryland, has you covered.
Speaking of Noro, this beautiful Fair Isle hat is an original pattern at Rosemary’s Gift and Yarn Shop, a local yarn store in Maine. You can buy the pattern in the store or on her website.
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.
Contact the store for color information.
Isn’t it breathtaking?
It takes just one ball of Juniper Moon Farm Findley yarn. This luscious 50% Silk, 50% Merino blend lace weight comes in 798 yard balls. That’s a lot of yarn! Findley is available in 22 solid colors. The multi colored Findley Dappled is available in 16 colors.
I hope you enjoyed this project round up.
Which one is your favorite?
