wish list: summer outfit

I found my perfect summer outfit, and it is a fully knitted one.
On my wishlist:

  • Loess : fresh out of the new Brooklyn Tweed Wool People collection, this stole has captured my heart. I’m a stole and wrap girl, and this simple design made of stockinette interrupted by a clever lace design is just perfect. It turns out I have the yarn for it too. My next project?
  • Thornett : from PomPom Summer collection – I want the whole magazine, please, and I would love to knit this cute little sleveless top. The deep V- neck is flattering, and the side detail adds a bit of sophistication.
  • Wrap Around Skirt: Add a lovely knitted wrap skirt (free pattern from Knit Picks). In fingering weight, it might take a while, but it would be a nice mindless knit, with just the right amount of lace to keep it interesting.
  • Hollis: To finish it all, this lovely knitted bag with leather straps, also in Pompom. Ideal for shopping on the farmers’ market, or go for a picnic by the lake or the beach.

What do you think? What are you planning to knit (or make) this summer?

J’ai trouvé ma tenue d’été idéale, toute en tricot.
Sur ma liste de souhaits:

  • Loess : Tout droit sortie de la dernière collection Brooklyn Tweed Wool People, cette étole m’appelle. Je raffole des grandes écharpes enveloppantes et de tout ce qui est rectangulaire, et ce modèle tout simple en jersey interrompu par des sections de dentelle au design moderne est parfait pour moi. Il se trouve que j’ai justement la laine qui convient. Mon prochain projet ?
  • Thornett : de la collection été PomPom – je veux tout le magazine, s’il vous plaît, merci, et je tricoterais en priorité ce petit top sans manches très mignon. Le col en V profond est très flatteur, et le détail sur le côté apporte une petite touche de sophistication.
  • Wrap Around Skirt: On ajoute une joli jupe portefeuille (patron gratuit Knit Picks). En laine chaussette, c’est un projet qui pourrait prendre un moment, mais pas besoin de trop réfléchir, et il y a juste la petite finition en dentelle à la fin pour briser la monotonie.
  • Hollis: Pour compléter le tout, ce charmant sac à lanières de cuir, toujours dans Pompom. Parfait pour le marché, ou le pique-nique au bord de l’eau.

Qu’en pensez-vous? Qu’avez-vous prévu de tricoter (ou coudre) cet été?

  1. such great picks! I agree, the new Pom Pom looks excellent, and I love your picks! I’ve always meant to knit a bag, but after knitting a shopping tote once years ago, it stretched out quadruple the size and it put me off bags. They look good, but I don’t see many knitters actually using one.

  2. My dear Agnès, to plan some summer garments, it would be very useful to have something similar to the summer 🙂 to be a serious girly knitter, I like the bag, the stole (but not the stockinette stitch, it’s too boring) and the top by pom pom. Have a good day my dear

    • You should visit Montreal, we had record heat these past few days. It is still spring, I’m sure you will have a bit of heat this summer in France. I hope so anyway, we’re moving back in a month. Take care !
