Summer Accessories

When I think of the perfect summer accessory, I think of a white shawl- something that can be dressy or casual, something to provide a bit of warmth in air conditioning.

I crocheted this shawl from Freedom Cotton, using the "My Blue Jeans Shawl" pattern and adding a scallop edging. The shawl was originally intended for my Etsy shop, but I just couldn't give it up!

I've been wanting to find a project for Louisa Harding Fauve yarn. It's soft and slightly stretchy. Knit this garter stitch cowl- a quick and easy project that suited the yarn perfectly. The flower is knit from Harding's Kimono ribbon.
