Summer Fun Wear...

A new week, a new theme... This week: "Summer Fun Wear", bringing you various designs from the Etsy Knitters Street Team to wear for summer.

What prompted this week's theme? Well, last week I finished a new pattern for a Corset-Laced Halter Top for summer and I posted it in my etsy shop: Fuzzy Bunny Knits . It's been so popular! Everyone is looking forward to summer and getting ready for their summer wardrobe. This pattern is so easy you can make one in every color and have an entire wardrobe!

Here it is:
What have the other Etsy Knitters been up to?? Well.. they have some fabulous options for summer as well.

Fiberworks is offering this delicate, Taupe Lace Scarf, knit in 100% baby alpaca. It would be lovely wrapped as a big bow or draped to show off the lace work and would work well dressed up for business with a suit or draped over a cocktail dress for evening. Isn't it gorgeous?

And Lindercella has created this Hot Pink Summer Wave Scarf that is just amazing! 60" long in 100% acrylic, this summer weight scarf is perfect for day or night time wear.

And what about these cute little wrist warmers perfect for spring and summer? Hand knit in a very soft silk/wool blend yarn hand dyed by Norske.

To finish with some fun... I couldn't resist including these great knitters "Knit Love" notecards by LocalGringos. I own a set of these notecards and I absolutely love them! From her "kNotes for kNitters© series of collages", ruminations on the theme of kNitting in particular, and Fiber Arts in general, a profession of "Knit Love".

These notecards are a collage design, hand & digitally colored, and are the third in LocalGringos' series honoring knitters past, craft connected-ness, and the Art of Knitting "handed" down from one pair of hands to the next. You've got to love them!!

Well, that's my offerings for today... I look forward to seeing what other fabulous Summer Fun Wear is posted throughout the week! Happy Knitting!

Thank you, Rachel! And thank you FuzzyBunny for including me in this week's theme! It's chilly and wet up here in the Northeast - let's hope our summer vibe can work some mojo on the weather! Have a great week!

It's funny to see how many beautiful things you can make out of yarn!
I do like to see these collections every week!
