Here in the Pacific Northwest we’ve had our first burst of warm weather and we’ve decided it’s high time we talk about warm weather knitting. Whether you’re thinking of garments to WEAR or projects to MAKE during our upcoming heatwaves, we’ve got you covered. Listen along as we talk about the ins and outs of our favorite knitting season: SUMMER!
First up, Stacey and Hannah share their favorite projects. We’ll get you thinking about your own knitting queue and wardrobe. And if you’re wondering if summer is blanket-knitting season, the answer is YES! Modular blankets are easy to knit in small sections while sitting in the sun, and then pieced together in the cool evenings. Stay tuned for more tips and tricks.
Next, Lee and Erica do a deep dive on plant fiber yarns. From cotton to linen and everything in between, you’ll learn about the ins and outs of each fiber and their blends. If you’ve never dipped into the world of plant fibers, this episode is for you!
