Summertime is for picnics, visiting the beach and for some it means hitting the road.  Had a customer in the other day and we had a great time matching this jacket for the perfect match in orange.  The yarn is Cascade 220 Superwash, a dk weight washable wool.  The colors that matched the Harley orange in their patched (not inked, but the actual Harley Davidson stitched patch) was #815 Black and #907 Tangerine.  At first I thought the tangerine was too neon, but to my surprise the Harley orange really is this bright.  It's just used in smaller patches, so it appears less intense.
Summertime is also great for simple projects that can be carried out to the garden and enjoyed during conversations with good friends.  These cute cover ups have great versitility.  A perfect jacket for when the evening sun sets.  Wear over swim suit or sleeveless top.  But in the winter, they are also perfect for laying over a long sleeve t-shirt, turtleneck or blouse.  The left 2 patterns are for children.  The pattern details can be see on my children's pattern page.  The right pattern is for us!   Ranging from measurements of 36-53, you can check more of the details on my women's jacket & cardigan page.
Summer is also when Lorna's Laces brings out new colors.  Above is Cummberbund (strong red-orange) and Waistcoat (beautiful deep dark cyan-green, or deep teal-picture looks really blue to me, but it is deep dark teal).  There are more shades to come!  These above are Helen's Lace.  You can see additional pictures, and maybe the color will be better on my Helen's Lace page.   Also check out the Shepherd Sock page, where you can see Waistcoat and a multi-color called Bow Tie. We are stocking most of the colors in Shepherd Sock, Sport, Worsted, Bulky and Helen's Lace.  As the new shipments arrive, we will be making them available on the web site.
