Optional Opportunities Abound...

Your knit and crochet patterns for Spring don't have to limit you or your wardrobe options.  Remember to consider the weight and color of your yarn, embellishments like buttons, or any trim that you might add whenever you start a new project.  Look at what is already in your closet and the items that you will be using in the coming months for inspiration.  Think of ways you can incorporate your projects into Autumn and possibly Winter, depending on your climate.

I recently finished a project called Sea Breeze Top (crochet pattern available as a free download from LionBrand) that I had put on hold for a few months. It gave me time to think about possibilities for this top beyond the beach and hot summer days.  The Sea Breeze top is made with durable, yet comfortable, Cotton Ease in Violet (color 191).  I considered adding a lightweight shrug or longsleeved wrap  to change it up a bit and allow for some flexibility on when and where this top could be worn.  It would also look cute over a lightweight longsleeved tee or turtleneck for cooler days.

Hopefully, today's blog will spark an idea or two and help you stay creative, consider all of your options and enjoy each and every project you make.
