Summer Cast Ons . . . .

The opening summer themes for volume two of my Kalendar Kidz pattern book publication are all complete!
Working on these themes whilst basking or should I say baking, in hotter than normal temperatures that we endured these past weeks was tough going.

Thankfully, cooler conditions have returned, perfect timing too as I now rearrange my knitting basket to accommodate the continuation of this second series with stunning, vivid colors of Fall.

In the meantime, please enjoy these sneak peeks of the August theme,
entitled Set Sail
where my Kidz got to enjoy some beautiful vistas and relief from the heat. 

Cast off colorwork intimidation by casting on these jaunty takings 
Columbia a unisex summer essential jacket perfect for keeping the chill at bay from those off shore breezes.

 For the girls, pair with a stylish tunic top


Nantucket a jaunty chevron stitched tunic with a touch of lace
complete with a Mini Kidz version, a snappy match shore  to delight
