Summer Knittin', Had Me A Blast!

Sale the Seven Seas

Holy ship, this week marks the last week of our Seven Seas Summer Sale! We've traveled far and wide, and we're ready to head back to good, ol' Reno, but before we do, we have one last sea to explore. This week, we visit the Arctic, and put 4 new brands that we love on sale for up to 25%-60% off!

Captain's Log, Week 7, Final Leg. Position, Arctic Ocean. Escaped the wrath of the Amity Island Great White, unscathed. Full steam ahead. Stopped at Swans Island in Maine, to stock up on supplies. Continued sale-ing north. Angling for the Hudson Bay, and our last stop - Koigu, in Ontario, Canada, where we'll continue the final leg of our journey on foot.

'Berg maneuvering proving difficult. Stuck in the ice off the coast of Greenland. We've held onto our most precious cargo until the bitter end, but we must lighten our load, in order to break free of the ice's frigid grasp. Must off-load remaining stash. The crew is hard at work, while I'm secured in my cabin. Can't bear to watch my beloved Madelinetosh and Plymouth plunge to the depths of the unforgiving sea. While I don't recommend a visit, if you hurry, you might be able to save some of this fiber. Sale on, me hearties, yo ho!

Here Comes the Sun!

After our chilly visit to the Arctic, we're ready for some sun! Summer is the perfect time to knock out a few lighter-weight projects, because, let's face it. Who wants to be knitting a blanket or a sweater in the midst of this summer heat?! Nope, not today wooly blanket - I'll turn you into a FO in the fall! Here are some of the projects inspiring our summer knitting!

My Favorite Cardigan Cascade

Cascade's My Favorite Cardigan

Cascade recently sent us some of their newest trunk show pieces, and we fell in love... to say the least! This adorable cardigan is seamlessly knit in the round, from the top-down, and is wonderfully drapey - perfect for cozying up! Knit in Venezia Worsted, you can easily dress it up, or dress it down, making it perfect for any time of day! We are picturing ourselves rockin' this beauty at the beach this summer, either as a cover-up, or to keep warm as it gets chillier in the evenings!
