What time of year is your favorite time to knit?  When the weather turns cold a knitter's fancy turns to warm cozy sweaters and afghans, but don't let a single season limit your love of hand crafting!  Lace, socks and children's projects are just right for the warmer months we're heading into.  And like the Pied Pipers of knitting Oblivious Knits, HeartStrings, Purl Bumps and Lisa Ellis Designs lead us into perfect warm weather projects with the style and grace we've come to expect from these accomplished knitwear artists.

Maple Leaf Scarf

Lace is always in season.  HeartStrings' Maple Leaves Scarf is easy to knit on just a few stitches and enjoyable to wear in a variety of ways. This delicate lace scarf is designed with a knitted lace pattern stitch where the silhouette of yarn over eyelets reminds us of maple leaves.

Memoria is memory, technical memory, and it is also a beautiful triangular shawl by Oblivious Knits.  Knit from the top neck down to the bottom edges the main body of Memoria is knit in diagonal lines that dissolve into lace hearts before ending in a stacked, scalloped edge.
