I'd like to use unusual patterns, yarns and techniques and I really have enough yarn already in my stash to complete this challenge, so it will be a way to use that up too. I particularly like the many summer yarns, which are now made with many kinds of materials. I have linen, rayon, bamboo, milk protein , stainless steel and soy yarns and hope to use some of each.
Here is a portion of my stash with summer yarns only:
So, without further ado here is my project #1, a crocheted overtop made with Louet Euroflax linen.
I love linen yarn as much as I do linen fabric. It takes dyes wonderfully and is cool to wear in summer. The holes in the fabric made it too bare to wear alone, so for modesty's sake I sewed a simple tee to go underneathe. The denim pants were sewn by me too, and overlayed with crocheted motifs and sprayed with bleach, thus the tie-dye look.
So 1 down and 30 to go! On to the next project!
