4 Yarn Types for Your Spring Knitting

Have you noticed all of the lovely trees in bloom? The pretty, yellow daffodils? The weather has warmed up and I’m excited! I usually start designing my spring projects right after the holiday season so I can be ready to launch a spring KAL and have fun with all of you.

I love how spring presents the opportunity to work with lighter yarns and knit drapey fabric. Thankfully, we’ve got a nice range of quality yarns to work with as the weather warms up. If you’re joining me for the Palm Canyon KAL, you’ll love both yarn options suggested for the pattern.

I can’t wait to get started on this project with you all, our community is so supportive. Especially during this time of social isolation, it’ll be great to come together online and enjoy our love for knitting.

Win a Copy of “Self-Striping Yarn Studio”

Several years ago I was so honored when Carol Sulcoski asked me if I wanted to contribute to the next book in her “Yarn Studio” series, Lace Yarn Studio. The book was a wonderful exploration of all the things you never knew you could do with lace weight yarn. So, I was soooo excited when she asked me to contribute again for her  newest in the series, Self-Striping Yarn Studio, that I had to share it with all of you!
