Summer Little Seasonals!

PhotobucketBack in February, Hannah, aka Mousewife and I published the first in our four-part eBook collaboration, Little Seasonals.

I'm here to announce the unveiling of issue two,
Summer Little Seasonals!

(click on this link to download now)

We're both very keen on this issue; I went in thinking it would be rather challenging to design for the warm weather, and have come out very impressed with the results.

Hannah and I had some kind of mind-meld going on: we spontaneously and entirely serendipitously came up with the same mesh lace stitch pattern for our separate patterns.

OoooooOOOooooo! (spooky mind-meld noise...)

Beach Bailado
Pattern: Beach Bailado
Source: Little Seasonals Summer eBook
Yarn: Butterfly Mercerized Cotton
Needles: 5 mm circs

This cute little wrap is done entirely in one piece and in one mesh pattern; it was based on my ballet wrap, which I love and wish I could just wear around.
So, this is my summertime, beachy solution to that wish!

Beach Bailado Footies
Pattern: Beach Bailado Footies
Source: Little Seasonals Summer eBook
Yarn: Butterfly Mercerized Cotton
Needles: 5 mm circs

And here be my second contribution to the eBook, footies to match the Beach Bailado wrap. They're really kind of cool; I need to produce numerous reasons to sport these decorative pieces. They are (incredibly) fast to knit, and take up very little yarn - the perfect "what do I do with these ends?!" kind of project!

You'll also be getting two mousewife patterns in this eBook; both of them rule school. They're a matching mesh bag/cell phone case set, which also, as it happily happens, match the Beach Bailado set. You could be the coolest kid on the waterfront!
