Creative Knitting - - CONTENTS -

Oh, sum­mer. For some folks, it’s the sea­son they look for­ward to all year long. For me, liv­ing in Florida we have sum­mer about nine months of the year. So I am al­ways look­ing for those per­fect sum­mer knits. You know the ones—they are light and lovely in your lap, but they turn into some­thing won­der­fully wear­able for warm weather. Do you have some fab­u­lous travel plans for this sum­mer? We have per­fect projects to take with you on the train, plane or au­to­mo­bile. And just in case you were won­der­ing, you can take your knit­ting on pretty much any air­plane nowa­days—which is good be­cause we knit­ters need to keep our hands busy while sit­ting still for that long! But even if you are just soak­ing up the air con­di­tion­ing, you need some light­weight knits in your life.

In this is­sue of Cre­ative Knit­ting, we ex­plore some clever con­struc­tions. Tack­ling some mo­du­lar knit­ting will teach you to put all the pieces to­gether, and in­clud­ing di­ag­o­nal lines makes for very flat­ter­ing knits that fit. We have a sec­tion just for all those lit­tle cuties in your life—plus you will learn some nifty smooth edg­ings for your knit­ting. And fi­nally, the finest yarns make for feath­erlight knit­ting that you can wear and work on even on the hottest of days.

What’s on your sum­mer knit­ting nee­dles? I’d love to hear from you!

Learn the magic of miters and work up this rav­ish­ing ruana that you can wear year-round!
