These are a few of my favorite things… for spring!

If you live anywhere near the northwestern United States, you know that spring has come later than normal this year.  Fortunately, over the past couple of weeks, the sun has decided to shine a little bit and the flowers have (hesitantly) started to bloom.  In honor of these little breaks from the dreary gray skies, I have decided to share a few spring pattern ideas with you that will brighten up any day – sunny or not!

The Rachel’s Bag pattern by Cassidy Clark definitely tops my list of fun, fashionable must-haves this spring.  The bag is fashionable, practical, and adds a certain flair to any outfit.  In other words, it’s the perfect accessory!

The pattern uses just two skeins of CotLin in Tomato and two skeins in Chartreuse.  Tomato and Chartreuse are two of our newest cotton colors and we think they look fantastic together!

Next on my list of perfect-for-spring projects is the Thundercloud Cowl from Snowden Becker.  What an amazing project!  As you can see in the image below, this cowl is the perfect addition to a light t-shirt and cardigan combo and, being that it is made with Aloft, it is super fantastic to wear. 

Next, I just love the Fleurette Cardigan by Melissa Dominguez.  This cardigan is light, super wearable and is so versatile that it can be worn (as shown) with a simple white tee and jeans, or dressed up with a sun dress.  As shown, this is knit up in Comfy Fingering’s beautiful Sea Foam color. 

We have several new colors available in our cotton lines, just in time for spring! Some of my favorite picks for the sunny months are:
Dandelion in Shine Sport and Worsted

Whisper in CotLin DK

and Macaw in Comfy Worsted, Shine Worsted, and Shine Sport.  What an amazing green!
