summer of stripes KAL part 3

Friday, June 03, 2022

Welcome to the accessory portion of the Stripes Inspiration for the KAL that will be starting on June 21!  Grab your scraps, your stash or head to your LYS and join Gina and I for some summer fun!  There will be fun prizes and you may even meet a new friend!  
I found a few stripy socks and accessories that caught my eye!

Top Left:  Weekend Shorty Socks by Summer Lee.  Are these the cutest or what!  I downloaded this free pattern immediately!  I think I need a pair of Weekend Shorty Socks!

Top Right:  Spotty Socks by Paintbox Yarns.  Another free pattern.   I mean, come on!  Aren't they just the cutest?

Bottom Left:  Trusy Toe up Socks by Tanis Lavallee.  Okay.... If you need a basic sock pattern with just enough instruction this is it!  And talk about a scrap buster!  If you need any inspiration just head to the project page.  SO many fun socks!  Again, a free pattern.  

Bottom Right:  Vanilla Latte Socks by Virginia Rose-Jeanes.  The name has me craving a latte every time I read it!  I've knit these socks as a solid version but have always been drawn to the detail and the stripes that are present in this recipe!  Again, head to the project page if in need of some inspiration! You guessed it, a free pattern.  

Top Left:  Stripe Study Shawl by Veera Valimaki.  I just adore Julie Hoover's version of this beauty.  Something I would love wrapped around me on a cool summer night!

Top Right:  Ashford Baby Blanket by Kaleidoscope Knits.  Looking for a fun baby gift that uses your stash?  This is it!

Bottom Left:  Agate Cowl by Nick Davis  This totally caught my eye.  There is just something about it.  Sort of like a updated Little Red Riding Hood!  This is made in a self striping yarn.  No need to weave in all those ends!

Bottom Right:  Stria Hat by Andrea Mowry.  This is Andrea's latest pattern which was knit during her latest KAL. A great pattern to try you Half Fisherman Rib skills.  I love it.  Another perfect scraps knit!  

Happy Weekend, friends!

    I love the Veera Valimaki shawl, it’s been on to knit list for ages. She has a lot of great striped sweater patterns as well. I’ve knit two Breathing Space sweaters, and am currently knitting a Sides and Stripes.
    I think I might try a second Sides and Stripes, but multi colored with skeincocaines Perfect Palette!

  2. I love the Stripe Study shawl. I knit one years ago and it is still one of my all-time favorites!

  3. Listen and show compassion to others. If people think they can talk to you about anything, they’ll invite you to hang out more often. Don’t monopolize the conversation. If you ignore people or always talk about yourself, they won’t invite you anymore.

  4. Offer advice if needed or wanted. Some people just want someone to listen to them. They need to get a load off of their chest. Be the person that listens. Give advice based on personal experience. Vidmate

  5. The rising number of patients with poor dental health along with the increasing consumer awareness about maintaining good oral hygiene is resulting in increased consumption of oral care products. The high cost of oral treatments has also led to an increase in preventative measures like oral care products. Oral cancer is the world’s eighth most prevalent cancer. Lip and oral cavity cancer are the 12th most prevalent cancer among men in the European Union. Such factors are invigorating the europe oral care market.
