What’s your favorite kind of project to craft in the summertime? Do any particular yarns feel ‘right’ for the warmer weather?
We love these brighter projects, because the colors and lightweight yarns inspire us to put aside heavier winter WIPs. Plus, it’s great to have something to do at the beach!
