In this issue, knit a luxurious beaded summer scarf that is really a necklace or knit a classic men’s tie or the boy’s rooster tie (designed by Nicky Epstein), for the special guy in your life. Also, let’s crochet a sun hat for everyone in the family. The Craft a Story column presents you with a snail puppet made out of wool, and Our Tribe features a story of women knitting on a reunion. In addition, you’ll learn the simple and easy art of mosaic, making stepping stones for your garden this summer. To add more finishing touches to your backyard, how about a fairy garden? Other projects include a nuno-felted bag, two beautiful versions of a child’s horse rein and harness for summer play, and much more.
