All right! It’s officially summer, friends! For some, that means their knitting and crochet work is on hiatus,* but there is so much that can be made for warm weather. Yes, with yarn! Featured this week you can see some late spring-appropriate ideas to try your hands at this June. Why not try something new?

On my podcast, Very Serious Crafts: On season 2, episode 10, the Very Serious Crafters get excited about Mollie’s antique spinning wheel, weigh in on pre-washing fabric, and tell you why you really should be blocking your finished knitting and crochet projects. We also go on a rather unexpected stripper cat tangent (which either will or won’t make much more sense when you actually hear the episode).
Recently on the blog: I’ve recently shared two posts in our new Handmade Wardrobe series, one about my experiences sewing Simplicity pattern 1803 and the ESP Dress from Decades of Style. I also dug in to the basics of using the app knitCompanion, one of my favorite new tools for working with charted patterns of all kinds.
