Memorial Day Weekend Projects

Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner, which means lots of long car rides to the beach or the mountains-- the perfect time to start a new small project. This year I am planning on treating myself to Vireo Cowl in Cardiff Classic Cashmere Single in the Piombo (light grey color). I have been wanting to knit it all winter long after feeling the sample knit we have in store (so luxurious and soft). I am still debating on what I want as my pop of color on the edging. I am thinking of diving into my stash and see what colors I have to see what would look good with the grey.

Here are some other great small projects for knitting in the car:

Envoy is a fabulous one skein project knit up in Shibui Knits newest yarn, Lunar. It’s the kind of accessory you’ll want to knit up in every color. It’s the perfect accessory for breezy summer nights. Best part is it’s a free with purchase pattern. If you buy a skein of Shibui Knits Lunar we will throw in Envoy pattern for free.

Another travel project I recommend is Churchmouse’s new hat pattern, Thinking Cap.  “Inspired by a ready-to-wear Italian cashmere cap” , it is a fine luxurious fabric that, knit on smaller needles, looks like something you could buy at Nordstrom. Everyone will be asking you where you bought it. Thinking Cap takes two skeins of Shibui Knits Pebble (which if you haven’t knit with you should -- it’s a staff favorite.  Not to mention the fiber content is a dream… silk, merino, and cashmere, your fingers will be thanking you.

What are your favorite small projects to work on during weekend trips?
