“Vicky” and the “Happy List”

Yarn: Knit Pick’s “Bare” superwash wool, nylon, fingering weight

Needles: U.S. Size 10 straights

“THE HAPPY LIST” (Things I’m Loving Right Now From Pinterest) festival21_medium2//Summer Festival Pattern by Georgie Hallam. This is a top-down, seamless cardigan perfect for summer. It is also part of a four pattern series ebook of which can be bought separately or all together. I don’t know about you, but that sunshine yellow is making my day!

83cfd78b4a58f2f1b70bffaec50d14be//From Wool and The Gang, Summer Kits. This company has so much on the ball when it comes to knitting kits and it seems they have brought knitting to an even cooler level. They were recently featured in the Wall Street Journal about this sweater. In this kit, you can choose the main and stripe colors, choose your waistband ribbon color and buy knitting needles to go along with it.

This is for all of you Bohemian types who love a little bit of rusticity, elegance and neutrality all rolled into one. Be sure and check out the blog from whence this came. It is written by a London girl living in Sweden who loves  Scandinavian interiors. The photos are fantastic! 66fb587e9a1a4ec136dfadcac145b54e//Jellybean Giraffes Throw Pillow by Clara Nilles.

Happy trails and happy knitting!
