New Choices Keep Springing Up

Slowly but surely, the weather is warming. Our new spring yarns have arrived at LYS and the shelves are stocked with our tried and true favorites, and the spring issues of knitting magazines are appearing on shelves everywhere.

Let's take a look at the new patterns that designers have come up with for this new season.

If you've seen the latest issue of Love Of Knitting, you've seen Melissa Leapman's Chloe Cardigan. It's on the cover spotlighting this Bay Blue colorway. The cheerful shades of Cerro make me think of spring and this is a great transitional piece you can have ready to wear as the weather warms.

The Natalia Sweater, by Leah Coccari-Swift, is such a great use of Liberty Wool. With one solid and a second variegated colorway, this self-striping yarn makes the multi-hued colorwork a breeze. Knitscene really captured the the ease of transitioning from cooler to warmer weather in their spring issue.

We hear time and again, how much you love Mohawk Wool, so we were pleased to see Amanda Scheuzger's latest topper in the new Spring Issue of the returning knit.wear. The clean lines and simple texture really make the stitch definition of Mohawk shine through.

Marty Miller uses Liberty Wool in her remake of the 'Rufflier Scarf' in the Spring Issue of Interweave Crochet.This airy scarf allows the yarn to show its colors in interesting and varied ways.

Lastly, Vogue Knitting has what may be the perfect sweater to bring on vacation. Deborah Newton's #17 Deep V-Neck Duster can be worn over a flowery dress to a nice dinner, or with shorts and flip-flops for a quiet stroll. Soft Linen's versatility adds to this piece's ability to be a good fit for both casual and dressy attire.
