Summer Knitting Ideas: Part 2

A Diet of Small Acessories & House Projects

● lacy silk scarf for the first days of fall
I know it sounds prosaic, but it's a great opportunity to enjoy a skein of luxurious silk guilt free. Just one skein of a gorgeous silk like Fleece Artist Italian Silk or Handmaiden Silken or Silk Rumple will do the trick. All you have to do is find a lace pattern you like (flip through your books & magazines or roam the web for something you like - goodge dishcloth patterns and you'll uncover scads!) cast on a few stitches and you're off to the races! Keep in mind that laces stretches like crazy, so you can make your scarf shorter & wider than normal.

● Cotton Shopping Bags
Make some grocery bags to help save the environment. I recomend using Super10 Cotton - it's affordable, sturdy, machine washable and comes in every colour you could ever want. Shopping bags also make GREAT gifts, we've found that people LOVE them and use them constantly.
