It’s still winter here in New England, but we can start to think spring and look forward to getting out of heavy coats and warm boots. And have you noticed that the days are getting longer?! It's time to pick some favorites from our new spring collections, and cast on now so you'll be ready when the temperatures start to climb.
In January we introduced WOODED GLEN, a collection of pieces made in our favorite trans-seasonal yarns. The pieces are great on their own or for layering - which you might need with spring's fickle temps.
Looking for something new? How about CALISTA, just hitting stores now in early February. It's an elegant mercerized cotton in a chainette construction. The exclusive "Calista" book has nine designs (7 knit, 2 crochet), including a favorite in our office, the Charlette 2-color top.

FORTUNA will be arriving in March. It has the same gorgeous drape, fiber and weight as our best selling linen blend Bella Lino but with a fantastic tone on tone dye effect. Fortuna’s palette of clear colors have a washed out look perfect for summer.

For April we have another collection in favorite summery yarns, HIGHLAND SUMMER. Designs span the seasons and include BONNIE, a stunning lightweight stripe and chevron top with fringed edge short sleeves.

Our designers really outdid themselves this season, and we couldn't fit everything into our pattern books. That means we will be introducing eight downloadable patterns from now through April as part of our weekly Web-letter.
Cast on today! And while you knit or crochet additions to your spring wardrobe, remember there are balmy days not too far away. [And if you hurry, there is a 48-hour Flash Sale on Ravelry. Buy one, get one free! Expires 2/4/2016 at 3:00pm EST!]
