Maschenfein summer favorites

We at Maschenfein consider the common opinion that knitting is only something for the cold season to have been disproved long ago. So many beautiful summer designs and numerous matching yarns make our favorite hobby in and for the vacations also irresistible. Are you still at a loss as to what to put on your needles and in your project bag in such hot months as August? Then you will find everything you need in terms of ideas and inspiration in this inspiration!

Long car ride? How convenient!

We all know them: endless long drives to the vacation destination. And often garnished with one or the other traffic jam. On top of that, there are bickering children. Here's our fine knitting tip: DVD player or tablet for the little ones (pedagogy must be handled flexibly) and a mindless knitting project for you. Simple stockinette stitch in rounds can be so wonderful! And at the end you are rewarded with the Lola Kjole from Sandnes, for example. Yes, it takes time. But if it doesn't work out this vacation with the completion, then at the latest in the next!

In general: dresses. They simply have to be! Because whether it's a walk on the beach, a nightcap at the hotel bar or reading with an alpine panorama in the background - it can always be light and airy. And not just for you, but also for your little fellow travelers. Who - you guessed it - are still very much inspired by binge watching in the car. And such a mommy-daughter look is just always wonderful. Goes perfectly in this case with the mini edition of the Lola Kjole.

Time is short? No problem either.

Of course we understand if you are pressed for time. The vacation is literally on the doorstep. Or is already over and you need very, very urgently a reminder of all the sunny hours away from everyday life. So curtain up for all the beautiful summer tops and shirts that are just waiting to be knitted by you this season:

In the Maschenfein store you will find a variety of designs. From round to V-neck, with stripes or without, in rib pattern or in brioche - it's all there. And also in terms of needle size, everything is on offer.

Endurance knitters simply take their feel-good needle size 3 mm and knit, for example, the Shore Tee by Anne Ventzel from Tynn Line by Sandnes. 4 mm needles are used for the maschenfein top Cosima from Cosma by Lamana and 5 mm needles for all friends of a neat sprint for the Alice Top by PetiteKnit. Here you knit with Tykk Line from Sandnes. As always, of course, check your gauge! But you need a reference point and a rough direction. Otherwise you will not get to the goal or on vacation!

Pretty little things do not matter at all in terms of luggage ...

Of course, the knitting time on vacation is always such a thing. In the head you have veeeeery much of it. In reality, however, it looks different. The pile of books still needs to be read and - oops - the family also needs some attention.

Our tip here: Knit little things! At the top of our to-knit list is the Sophie Scarf from PetiteKnit. You just can't show it often enough. And knit. Several copies also provide you with emergency gifts. Or just with the right scarf for every outfit. And yes, knit it with Cashmere 6/28 from Pascuali. It's a warm yarn in principle, but we'll tell you something: the first crisp mornings of fall aren't that far away ...

Bags also always convey summer feelings

You can also hold on to summer with knitted and crocheted bags. With the many great designs you have unfortunately the agony of choice. For example, the new Florence Bag from PetiteKnit is small and delicate. The Riviera Bag by Paula_m holds everything you need for a day at the beach and the Hosta Bag by Sidsel Sangild holds everything you need for a stroll through town. So, which bag would you like?

No more time for knitting and crocheting?

Who is now project-technically supplied, but still needs a (finished) bag for the vacations: No problem! Our project bags and pouches are not only great for wool and accessories, but also for towel, swimsuit and Co.

A great color selection you will find, for example, the shoppers from Minuk. The small label is based in Hamburg and makes all its bags by hand from colorful, sturdy canvas. So you can easily take the bags with you to the beach or to the city. The same goes for the Minuk Bucket Bag, which features a circular bottom and great stability.

One of our favorites: Minuk shopper in sage.

Of course, you can't forget the right needles for your project. We now have so many beautiful manufacturers in the store - everyone should find the right set. Of course, we are happy to help you if you have questions about the different systems. Our advice: If necessary, first try out a single pair of needles to see if you like the feel before investing in a whole set. And: We have found that some yarns knit better on metal - and vice versa. So it pays to have one or the other needle in both versions in stock. This works especially well with the manufacturer Chiagoo.

Have a great summer!

But now we wish you a nice (remaining) summer! Here on the blog it continues on August 19. There we will introduce you again a designer in more detail. The next Saturday Coffee will be on August 26th. Until then, you can browse through our old blog posts and get inspired. Until then: Have a good time!
