Knit in Public

Where do you knit? I love to have a small knitting project with me wherever I go. You never know when you'll have the chance to squeeze in a few stitches and actually that is my favorite time to knit! I knit at the mall, the library, doctor's office, dentist, school car pickup line, in restaurants, movies, and anywhere I may have to wait more than a minute!

Today I'm knitting at Barnes and Noble Bookstore while my teen searches for a new book to read. Guess who ended up buying a book? Me! A knitting book, of course!

What to Knit: Ideas for Spring Knitting!

I love springtime knitting! The knits are light, airy, and usually use bright happy colors that put me in a good mood. Also, it's my favorite time of year to sit outside and knit a few rows while taking in the fresh air.

Here are some of our newest knitting project ideas for spring:

Classic Elite Pear Blossom Bag Knitting Pattern - this little cotton Bag uses just 2 skeins of Classic Elite Mesa Yarn

Star Lily Top Knitting Pattern - this versatile little wrap top is perfect for layering and can be worn 3 different ways! It features Classic Elite Canyon Yarn.

From Shibui's Mix Collection, the Mix No. 14 Striped Scarf Knitting Pattern has lovely drape and is large enough to also be worn as a wrap. It features Shibui Cima Yarn.

From Knit One Crochet Too, the Sea Lettuce Shawl Knitting Pattern has quickly become one of their most popular patterns, ever! This triangle wrap has a wavy stitch pattern throughout then a beautiful lace edging. It knits up with just 2 skeins of Knit One Crochet Too Crock-O-Dye Yarn!

Happy knitting!
