This lovely piece is knitted out of four balls of Classic Elite Firefly, the perfect summer weight yarn in a blend of viscose and linen, made in Italy. The yarn has a unique texture with a slightly slubby but soft texture and a beautiful, glowing sheen. The drape on Firefly is incredible and it blocks out wonderfully.
This shawl is the perfect size and weight to keep your shoulders warm on cool summer nights. This shawl begins at the long side and then decreases by four stitches every row, one on each edge and a double decrease down the center of the piece. I love the eyelet pattern paired with the rib on the edge adding interest and texture.
The pattern is easy to read and offers written instructions as well as a chart, perfect for every knitter. You can check out the free pattern by clicking here. -B
Usually we associate owls with intellectual wisdom or wisdom of the soul. They are often seen as mysterious, mostly because many owls are strictly nocturnal and we have always found night to be full of mystery and the unknown. I have just always loved anything owl; jewelry, clothing with owl print, and anything home decor.
When I saw this pattern on Ravelry, I knew Leslie or I had to make it. Of course with her speed of completing projects she beat me to the punch. She used 2 skeins of Cascade Eco Wool and a size M crochet hook. To get the large gauge you need to hold 4 strands together for this super thick sturdy fabric. It is perfect for holding anything, but I think mine would need to be filled with yarn The finished basket is sturdy enough to stand up on its own or for easy storage just lay it flat.

The Queen Anne’s Lace Scarf, as published by Khebhin Gibbons on his blog, 1craftyboy, is just about the perfect spring scarf, very open and airy. This clever chain of crochet motifs looks great in virtually any yarn weight, composition or color. It is especially fetching crocheted with Noro Silk Garden Sock because of how the yarn changes tones and colors as you are crocheting.
Leslie crocheted this one out of a single skein and used a size g hook. The scarf measures over 95 inches and with yarn left over, you could make it longer if you are wanting to wrap it several times. It’s fun to wear with jeans or as a dressy lace addition to your favorite summer dress.
In either case, it’s a very satisfying way to be complimented by perfect strangers. The delicate pattern reminds me of intricate Victorian lace very feminine and beautiful. -B
