Spring Knits

Looking for spring knitting ideas? Here are a few of our shop favorites...
Above is the February Sweater from Elizabeth Zimmerman, perfect for that little one in your life. Another great baby knit is the Mac & Me Outer Baby Blanket, below, knit in Spud and Chloe. This is possibly the most requested pattern in the shop.

"Kermit", as Patricia calls him, below, is the perfect project for those looking for something different. If knitting makes you happy, knitting toys makes you especially happy - or should we say "hoppy"?
Scarves, shawls and cowls are always in style and Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend, below, in all of its gorgeous colors, is perfect for your next spring cowl.
Speaking of "neckware" Patricias pick is called Springtime Bandit, a pattern by Kate Osborne of the Fibre Co. This project is knit up in Alpaca with a Twist, doubled. No surprise that this pattern has also become a shop favorite.New to Patricia's Yarns is Schulana Sierra from Skacel. This cotton and silk blend is wonderful for baby booties.


Of course, if you still can't decide what to make, you can always choose a beautiful yarn for any warm weather project. May we suggest Blue Sky Cotton Worsted. It comes in an array of colors that even the Easter Bunny would be jealous of and did we mention it is also 15% off for the month of April? - It is the Yarn of the Month!Happy Knitting!
