Recently, I put away my winter knits.
My fave black wool sweater, my grandma’s green button-down with the giant collar that still smells vaguely like her perfume, the head-warming hats and the rotating cadre of scarves I wear from October to April were all packed away and stored until next Autumn.
At the same time, I pulled out my summer knits. Knits in summer? Yes! Maybe it was because I wrote about Ambika’s gorgeous handknit bikinis the other day, but I love the juxtaposition of what is usually thought of as a “winter” material or texture when temps are hanging in the 70s and 80s. Still not convinced? Check out some of the pretty fab (and always sustainable) knitted wonders I found while doing some online window shopping.
What about a knit necklace? This one from Etsy seller Erica Hogenbirk is made from beach stones and neutral yarn.
These handmade knit shorts are just totally unexpected and fun. Via Robot Recenze on Etsy.
Or how about these handknit bangles from Knits by Vara on Etsy – work the summer neon trend in your own way!
This beautiful summer sweater by Eileen Fisher is a luxurious hemp knit. Perfect for layering over a swimsuit or sleeveless dress.
This Organic by John Patrick sweater is ideal for too-cold offices blasting with A/C.
