Lakeside Anniversary Wrap by CYNTHIA CUSHING

lakeside_anniversary4

We love the simple construction of the Lakeside Anniversary Wrap by Cynthia Cushing. Although this is essentially a rectangle (folded in half and then partially seamed along one edge), the designer thoughtfully addressed the tendency of stockinette to roll by knitting it  on the bias and incorporating an I-cord edge. Our version combines a glowing strand of Berroco Captiva with a strand of Shibui Silk Cloud (silk and mohair) for a luxurious wrap  that is open and airy and so very soft.

 Ship to Shore Shawl by Katie Rempie

The Ship to Shore Shawl by Katie Rempie combines different stitch patterns and a larger needle size for a beautifully textured and lightweight accessory. This is our second version of this shawl; our first was knit with cashmere but we were curious to see how this would work with Sparrow from Quince & Co. As expected, the linen gives the shawl a crisp structure, lovely drape, and a cool, dry hand – all wonderful qualities in a summertime accessory.
