I have been taking it pretty slow lately (even though I have a few trips and things planned for the upcoming weeks) and have been trying to take in what is by far my favorite part of the year.
I have a pretty high tolerance for heat (within reasonable limits) so that hasn't been a problem, and I have been trying to really stop and enjoy that feeling of having warm wind blow in your face and on your arms. I miss it all winter and when this time of year comes around I want to really bask in that glorious feeling. Guess I'm in tune with the whole #mindfulness trend. Also, I tend to forget how green everything is in late spring/early summer. I know it sounds pretty obvious, yet during the winter months I forget how vibrant everything is when summer starts peeking around the corner...

F.O. : Off-white cotton top with lace detail

It has been warm and sunny with a glorious warm breeze around here lately and I finally have a new product up on the shop, this cotton summer top with a lacy deorative border (I did it again, I used rows of different stitches as decoration, I can't help it, I find it looks so interesting and pretty).
I actually had something completely different in mind while I started knitting it, but that is the beauty of handmade items that you make up as you go, sometimes it turns out exactly as planned and other times the result is unexpected but you love it anyways.

As always, details on my Etsy shop!
