Summer Breeze cover up


I knit this cutie on the fly. I didn’t have a pattern but I knew I wanted a mesh like pattern. It was definitely free form knitting. I cast on what I thought would be wide enough and just knit away. IMG_4662  The yarn is a lace weight Pima Cotton/Silk blend from Wildwood Yarns. It has a wonderful drape and isn’t too heavy. It’s perfect to throw on over my bathing suit to go to the beach or pool.

Summer Knitting and Crocheting


June and July are my favorite months. Our label business slows down a bit and I have time to breathe and be creative. Here are a few of the projects I have been working on.

I have had my eye on some crocheted wire jewelry kits from  Yoola design for a while. I finally purchased one and  I am addicted. She uses a technique called ISK (Invisible Spool Knitting). It reminds me of the spool knitting I did when I was a kid except you use a crochet hook and the technique is brilliant. It does take some practice but by the 3rd bracelet my stitches were coming out even.  It’s very relaxing and portable so I can take it anywhere and work on it. It’s a great summertime hobby.

This is the first bracelet which I made for a graduation gift.
It’s made from silver filled wire and I purchased the charm from Amazon.









This necklace is also made from silver filled wire. After my mother passed away,  I was going through her jewelry and found my favorite earrings except one was missing. I looked everywhere but never found it.  I added the single earring as a charm to this necklace and creIMG_4665 IMG_4666ated  heirloom keepsake.








This is my third bracelet and I am keeping it for myself.
