Summer Knits Free Patterns
Spring Is In The Air
I love the beginning of every season, but, I must say, spring is my favorite. It brings inspiration for new beginnings, creative urges, and life just starts to feel a little easier.
Something about the warmer temperatures and yet not too hot, just really motivates me.
Rather it be the mundane chores that need to be done around the house like spring cleaning, gardening or being creative. Spring just puts a bounce in my steps and makes working seem less of a chore.
Although the weather is warmer, the skies are brighter I still love to knit.
My knitting does not get put away and brought back out in colder weather.
Instead it changes and is geared more towards lighter clothing and smaller items. I do tend to put away the heavier items, like blankets, afghans, poncho's etc.,I save those for colder months., during the spring and summer months it is just too warm to be under a heavier knit item..
As for socks and hats, although I do not wear them at this time of year I always have one or the other on my needles, because they are so portable, they can easily go where ever I go.

Knitted Earbud Pouch
Say What ?
The designer ( Mary Keenan) has generously shared her pattern on how to make this wonderful earbud pouches.
I can say that everyone I know wants one of these....who wouldn't ?
They keep earbuds safe in your bag with out tangling or getting caught up in other items...They would also be a great item to help fill a Christmas stocking or Easter basket....Great way to get an early start on Christmas knitting.
This snug little pouch will keep earbuds safe, untangled, and easy to find in a bigger bag. The perfect gift either on its own or with a pair of earrings or some wrapped candies tucked inside, it knits up in the time it takes to watch a movie and uses up the remains of other projects.

A Koozie For Your Drink Of Choice
I love sweet ice tea.
My go to drink in spring and summer is ice tea.
When I am working in the garden, watering the plants or just sitting on the patio relaxing, you can be sure I have brought a glass of ice tea along.
But I hate it when the condensation drips from the glass , dripping on my bare legs . Shocks me to the core when that happens.
Perfect solution to this problem is a mason jar and an ice tea cozy.
Also works well for hot or iced coffee and smoothies. I also like the fact that, these jars also have lids . Good for keeping out the bugs, bees and wasp.
All you need is a pint size Ball or Mason jar, a few scraps of leftover yarn and this free Ravelry download ; Koozie For You
