Easy breezy summer tanks

It always amazes us when customers mention that their knitting is a seasonal affair, a passion that they tuck away during the spring and summer, seemingly unaware that there is an alternate universe brimming with exquisite fibres and beautiful patterns designed specifically for the warmer months.  We derive so much pleasure from our knitting that we could never envision a scenario in which we didn’t have something (something!) on our needles, maintaining our equilibrium, at all times. That said, and because it is our duty to enable and inspire, we are sharing patterns over the next weeks perfect for keeping your needles moving from April through August! 🙂

Today, a focus on tank tops…
