Knitting for Summer!

When you think of a blanket, garment or scarf that has been knitted, what first comes to mind? Maybe cold weather? Or wool? Well that is what most of us associate with knitting - wooly mittens and scarves or large throws that keep us warm in winter. But did you know there are fun knitting ideas for Summer?! Here are just a few I came across online this week.

I hope these images and ideas from Lion Brand Yarn inspire you to knit this summer. I plan to try my hand at the Felted Sea Scarf (last image) so I can enjoy it during the chilly NW nights.
