8 Quick Weekend Projects

Spring & Summer knitting is all about being on the go, these quick projects are easy to tote and relaxing to knit at home.

Hats & Cowls
It may be warm outside but one of these hat or cowl projects will help you use up the left over yarn from your latest sweater or afghan project.

JOJI's Fourinone

JOJI's Fourinone includes two knitting designs that can be styled as hats or cowls and all four look equally good on men and women.

French Press Knits Montebello

Inspired by the Swiss architecture French Press Knits' quick to knit Montebello Texture Cowl gives you instant gratification and it knits up almost instantly in Cascade's soft & bulky Magnum. And her cabled Breckenridge Cowl also comes together quickly in only 80 yards of your favorite super bulky yarn.

Knotsewcute's crocheted Soft Squares Hat & Scarf

Knotsewcute's child sized Soft Squares Hat and Scarf Set is crocheted in a fine washable wool and the stitch, unique tassels and slouch look make it a hit.

Slippers & Socks
It doesn't have to be cold out to enjoy a pair of slippers and Knotsewcute has done it again with these two new crocheted designs, the adorable Simply Felted Ballet Flats and for men, the Felted Men's Slip-Ons.

HeartStrings FiberArts Rainy Day Socks

And of course a pair of socks are a cool knit on a hot day and you'll have HeartStrings FiberArts' Rainy Day Socks on and off your needles faster than an April Shower.

Feeling lucky? My first April Blog Giveaway is for Lily Go's new Metropolitan Shawl and a skein of Dream In Color Smooshy to knit it in. Visit my blog post, to enter. No purchase necessary and the winner will be announced April 12, 2011.

Lily Go Sage Cardigan

And Lily Go's new Sage Cardigan may take a few weekends to finish but you'll love the results! Worked in a worsted weight, the front is singled breasted and the collar is a different style from her original Sage cardi.
