Warm Weather Projects

Warmer weather calls for light-weight yarny projects. It's not pleasant to be working on a full-sized afghan, sweater or shawl, sitting on your lap when the weather is warm! Of course, if you're making an afghan from squares or strips, that's much better.
I like to make dishcloths, spa cloths and doilies and/or place mats in warmer weather. These are smaller projects, usually in cotton or light-weight yarn that are easy to transport.
Here are three spring and summer projects that caught my eye:
The Kaleidoscope Mandala would make an excellent hot pad or one side of a potholder. This is also a good project for using up small bits of leftover fiber.

I saw this pattern on Ravelry and was enchanted!  I admire relief decoration in a piece.  I do love how a photograph of the trees, mountains and clouds inspired this washcloth, called 3 Sisters Mountains Cloth.  The 3 Sisters Mountains are in Oregon!

My friend, Faith, is a beekeeper.  I saw this filet crochet chart online for a Bee Trapped in Filet Netting. Multiple squares would make an excellent veil for Faith's beekeeper hat!

The Bee Square could also be paired with some floral squares for a wonderful afghan or table runner!
Has Spring inspired your yarny life?
