Isn't it Spring Yet?

I don't know about you, but I am ready for the cold weather and brown, lifeless landscape to give way to warm sunshine and new life. Spring is my favorite time of year, even though I always have allergies to the pollen, because of the beauty of the blooming flowers, budding trees and opportunity to sit out on my porch and knit and take it all in. And if there is still a nip in the air I can always wrap up in a lacy shawl!

Spring isn't here yet, though the first bulbs are starting to poke through the earth, but as knitters we can start preparing early by using fun spring colors! One of our colorways from last spring- Cherry Blossom- is always popular and looks great knit up. You can see one of our customer's new Cherry Blossom socks on her blog.

We have also posted several new springy colorways on the website recently. I just have to keep telling myself, spring will be here soon!

"Silverlode" reminds me of the pussywillows that grew in springtime at the house I grew up in. So many beautiful spring colors!
