A few Spring accessories for you to consider

We have several new samples in the shop that are gathering attention.  They are fun to knit and  great to wear!First up is a cowl designed by Hilary Smith Callis, created with a single skein of fingering weight Anzula Cloud: Luna Viridis.Luna ViridisThis wonderfully textured cowl "begins as a semi-circular shawl with a Stockinette Stitch center worked flat, and is then joined and worked in the round to create a circular piece that mimics a shawlette wrapped around the neck."This cowl provides a pop of brilliant Anzula color to any outfit without bulk, weight, or ends that may come unwrapped as you move.  We love it!  It is a pleasure to wear.boneyardFor a great beginner's project, we have Stephen West's Boneyard Shawl.  It is easy to see why this FREE pattern has been a huge hit with Ravelers since its publication in 2009.  Always a classic, it has been knit up and documented almost 7,000 times.Our shawl was created with two skeins of Shibui Rain (which is quickly becoming our favorite yarn of the season).  Knit up on a US 8 needle, this shawl is quickly finished, to give you a great layering piece that has beautiful drape and fluid movement that looks fantastic when casually tossed around your neck.  (For a silly video of Stephen demonstrating how to wear a shawl, click here).spectrumOur shop sample of Spectrum, designed by Shellie Anderson and included in Shibui's SS16 collection, combines Rain with Silk Cloud for a fabric of dreamy comfort.  100% mercerized cotton is knit together with silk and mohair, and it is out of this world.  We might combine Silk Cloud with every yarn we use, it we could.Our sample is the wrap version of the pattern and calls for 6 skeins of Rain to be worked with 3 skeins of Silk Cloud. You could opt to work up the scarf version of the pattern.  Either way, lovely!We have more to share with you and dozens of colors to consider, so we hope that you'll visit us soon to get something fresh and breezy on your needles right away.
