Beautiful Projects – Sunshine!

Here in Scotland its pretty cold, damp and dreich but the days are starting to get longer so spring does seem like its on the way, even if it seems far off. It can’t be surprising that bright and cheery projects keep catching my eye so for this week I thought I’d share some knitted sunshine. It’s a reminder that I should plan some gorgeous yellow projects to knit next winter!

Using the Arisaig pattern to create a short sleeved, cropped cardigan is such a great idea. Perfect for covering your shoulders during warmer evenings, and vintagenettles as written lots of helpful notes on making her fantastic version in case you’re inspired to try the same!

There’s so much to love about this stunning Laika, knit by cherieasaurus. Turning the cardigan design into a pullover is a great idea, and that colour would make anyone smile…

A bright and sunny shawl is a great way to brighten up dreary days, and something I’ve realised is missing from my own wardrobe! This lovely Ishbel was knit by unraveling.

Some of you might recognise this knitter as Tasia of Sewaholic, and this gorgeous Lauriel that she knit in Madelinetosh tosk dk. I love the details and ribbon behind the buttonbands, and there are some helpful tips on her project page here.
