Community Eye Candy: Linen

Posted by oharethey on

Lately I am obsessed with linen. After years of seeing my coworkers make beautiful eye candy posts about linen and summer tops, I finally made myself one this year and now I know what all the fuss was about. Linen garments are wonderfully suited to my climate so I already have my second on the needles. Today I wanted to share recently finished projects from other Ravelers who have seen the light of linen.

The sturdiness of linen makes it an excellent choice for homeware projects like justanotherbrick’s Woven Table Runner, SabinePe’s Citrus Coaster, and PetraMar’s Linen Placements (done in linen stitch!).

These Ravelers will be staying cool like me in their summery tops! Check out dorablu’s Paulina, Kiyomibee’s Maarled Vaara, and tizerlina’s Walk the line.

Summery tops are not the only way to wear linen. Look at nikwik’s Sand Davis, suzu306’s Blooming Shawl #3, Norbertine’s Sparkling Rain, and Kerpena’s Mano Dalia :).
