All Eyes on Eyelet 

We literally just showed you the Easy Eyelet Poncho a month ago. Because it's quite possibly the simplest lace pattern that exists, y'all went nuts for it, especially in Creative Linen's Stormy (pictured). We sold out of Stormy in a hot minute the last time around, but it's back in stock, baby!

And when we say it's simple, we mean it: just a one-row repeat (!) where you'll work that one row until the desired length is achieved. Then you just fold it in half, seam it up a bit along one of the edges and you'll have created a classic, breezy, multi-season layer. Quick to knit, it’s got more holes than yarn!

With a crisp look but a soft feel, Creative Linen is a winner for spring and summer knits. Great stitch definition means that lace and textured patterns really shine. It comes in a fresh color palette of brights and tonals. With a mixture of 50% linen and 50% cotton, Creative Linen will wear and wash beautifully, making it an essential choice for warmer days.

Shop Creative Linen HERE! You'll need three skeins to complete the Easy Eyelet Poncho, along with a 24" circular needle in a US 8. If you need one, we like this one.

WoolAddict's Footprints

New in the Haus: Footprints from WoolAddicts! Footprints is a fingering weight yarn, spun from a breathable blend of cotton, wool and nylon. While perfect for a pair of summer socks, we can just as easily see this being used for shawls and warmer weather sweaters when a flurry of color is what you're after. This rapid color-changing yarn uses a unique dye technique creating a painterly, paintbox effect. 

If you need a cute, teensy, perfect-for-packing small project, take a look at the Tropical Getaway sock pattern! This shortie sock pattern features toe-up construction with a short row heel.
