Here ths Stash Enhancers share a little of what we’ve been knitting (and finishing) this summer. No matter the weather, we are always clicking our needles. Some of us finish things faster than others, but that just keeps the rest of us motivated!
The minute our last shipment of Hazel Knits DK arrived, I snatched up the colorway Heartthrob to CO for Neon. Featuring an all over lace pattern, Neon keeps the knitting interesting, but not too complicated. I don’t want to wish away summer, but I can’t wait to start wearing this cheerful cardigan this fall!
It doesn’t look like much yet, but hopefully this sweet little summer top will be finished in time to get some wear this summer! The Riverine Pullover is from the most recent Pom Pom Quarterly and I’m knitting it some top-secret yarn that will be hitting the shelves at Stash this fall!
The summer heat hit with full force this year, so I have stuck to small fingering weight projects until I can shut myself in a dark, air-conditioned room and pretend it’s winter in Iceland. This pair of socks is knit from a beautiful hand-dyed merino yarn that our very own Kathryn dyed! The pattern is from Knitting Vintage Socks and is the first of many that I will knit from this book.
As far as works in progress, I have a few vintage blouses going at the moment that all seem to be at a stopping point. This one, knit in Knitted Wit fingering, is one of those oops-I-should-have-bought-more-yarn projects. I’m currently awaiting a skein of white fingering weight to use as a contrast color so I can get it finished!
I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but… I haven’t finished any knitting projects this summer. Yet!
These two projects are so close to being finished. I just need to spend some quality knitting time with each of them and we’ll be in good shape. I especially want to finish this red Lobelia cardigan. It’s been on my needles since April! I started it intending to layer over dresses and skirts, so the sooner I finish the more wear it will get.
This little number is the Sweet Bunting cardigan. I just joined the sleeves to the yoke and am poised to being knitting some sweet pink bunting flags. I am loving working with the slightly rustic texture of this very luxurious yarn from The Fibre Company.
So, that’s what’s on and off our needles! Now it’s your turn. What have you been knitting (and finishing) this summer?
