Project highlights:

Lana Jois’ Slide pullover combines modular knitting and asymmetrical color blocking for a modern take on an otherwise simple garment. With drop shoulders and a nice wide scoop neck, this sweater looks very wearable. This would be amazing knit up in a squishy, soft yarn like Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed Yarn; if it’s more about the colors for you, I would opt for Jo Sharp Classic DK Wool Yarn. Either yarn would give you a long lasting piece that would keep you warm and comfortable for many seasons.

The adorable A-line Coastal Dress by Amy Gunderson is my idea of a summer wardrobe staple. Knit up in a fingering weight yarn with some linen or cotton such as Block Island Blend Yarn, this piece would only get softer and better with every wear.
