Breezy Summer Knitting

The first day of summer is near and making your knitting as easy as a Summer breeze is what is all about. My June Special Offer is still in effect: Spend $25 or more on yarn, knitting needles & notions, paper patterns or magazines (any order charged shipping) and you'll receive a Complementary Skein of Yarn! Yarn will be selected for you while supplies last.

And one of these light weight lace projects is the perfect for relaxing with family and friends.

Schaefer Audrey

The Schaefer Yarn Company's Audrey
Lace weight Audrey is a luxurious blend of merino wool for softness with cultivated silk for luster and drape. Hand painted in a wide palette of variegated and semi solid shades, finding just the colorway is easy. And this exquisite yarn is featured in the latest HeartStrings FiberArts' shawl design!

Buds in the Breeze Stole

HeartStrings' Buds in the Breeze Stole is as enjoyable to knit as it is lovely to wear. This light-as-a-breeze stole features a field of flower-like medallions centered with nupp "buds" and is knit in only one skein of Audrey. And if you order the Buds in the Breeze Stole Kit Audrey is 15% Off!

Nelkin Designs' Eventide

For more project ideas with Audrey try one of these patterns by Nelkin Designs. The beaded Eventide scarf is one of designer Laura Nelkins favorite scarves ever! Eventide is based an incredibly easy 6 stitch "cross stitch" pattern and its made by working double yarnovers that add length to your stitches so they float and appear to be woven not knitted. Beads are used on each end of the scarf creating an arrow of bling.

Aventina is another sumptuous beaded scarf, its oversized so that you may wrap it around yourself more than once and still have fabric to hang down. Its worked in two halves and grafted at the middle.

Winterlude is worked from the bottom up with increases on each edge, this triangular shaped lace shawl incorporates both lace and cables on a ribbed base and can be worked with or without beads. As with all Nelkin Designs' pattern, its both charted and written out.

Heartstrings also brings you these two new desings, A Touch of Beaded Class Scarf which has a touch of beads in alternating light and dark accents colors adding sparkle and stylish class to this scarf that is wide enough to be worn as a shoulder shawl. And the Peek A Bead Scarf with bead accents nestled within a honeycomb of colorful knit fabric.

Peek A Bead Scarf

Since Lily Go has began designing lace she has brought you one beautiful design after another and her new Liliiflora shawl is stunning! Its namesake is the purple magnolia flower which Lily saw blooming beautifully in the early spring during her recent trip to southern China. Liliiflora is worked from the bottom up and the narrow curved shape of lace is created by short rows.
