MINDFUL MAKING #40 – Breezy Summer Tee

Welcome and welcome back to the mindfulmaking YouTube channel. Episode 40 is a celebration of the upcoming release of the Breezy Summer Tee pattern. A simple top knitted top down in the round in a luxurious lace weight yarn, gives you not only a satisfying knitting experience, but also a sophisticated and elegant summer top that weighs absolutely nothing.

Pattern to be released 25 May 2022 and there will be a release discount code offered to subscribers of the mindfulmaking mailing list. If you have not yet subscribed, head over to www.mindfulmaking.com.au and sign up. This also the place to be, if you want to hear more about test knits for the Gum Nut Tee and other future design.

But that’s not all. 2 additional summer tops have jumped off the needles and we follow up on the challenging neckline on my husband’s jumper. If you don’t know what I am talking about check out episode 39 for more details. Grab a cuppa and settle in.

Knitting is my mindfulness practice. That is where I set down to breathe to relax and to focus. Knitting nourishes our built-in desire to create and beyond all the mental and health benefits of knitting we even get beautiful wearable garments.
