Stitch It For Your Summer Shades!

The sun is out and you should be wearing your sunglasses!  You should also give your shades a hand-stitched home by stitching up an eyeglass case needlepoint project!  These projects are straightforward and quick; small and easy to take to the pool or on a summer getaway.

Come and Sample Them!

We have some new samples at knitting samples at Wool & Grace, and it just so happens that they are great summer knitting projects!

Patty recently finished Simone (pictured above), a Shibui design featuring their yarns Rain and Reed.  Patty describes this as a perfect vacation knitting project, with wide bands of stockinette stitch worked in Reed, Rain and Reed once again.  It's a stylish finished object that requires very little technique - just some nice, relaxing time spent stitching.  The Simone pattern is free with purchase.  The wrap size (as sampled) requires 3 skeins of Reed and 4 skeins of Rain.  Each skein of Reed is 246 yards and $20.  Each skein of Rain is 135 yards and $19.50.

Margot just finished Découverte (pictured below), a stylish and simple vest designed by Julie Hoover.  Our Découverte sample is knit up in Anzula Squishy.  It's incredibly soft and these semi-solid hand-dyes give depth to this luscious fabric.  Découverte is a simple knit, made in pieces and seamed together.  A few simple techniques are easy to master and give this garment a finished look.  You'll need 3 -5 skeins of Squishy to complete this project.  Each skein of Squishy is $36 and 385 delicious yards.  Click here to buy your Squishy online!  Découverte is a paid pattern available through Ravelry for $8.50 or from Wool & Grace (via Ravelry in-store sales).
