Light breezes and sunny skies, that’s the feeling expressed in Mirasol’s collection for Spring/Summer 2013 with refreshing colour in a garden-like palette of early blooming hyacinths, forget-me-knots, crocuses, and crisp green foliage, a flattering combination of both bold and subtle hues. With the focus on Nuna, a lightweight silk blend, and newcomer Illaris, a cotton yarn rich with lustre, this gathering of designs showcases lacework, skillful shaping, and classic details with a playful modern twist.
Whether you are getting an early start on warm weather knitting or looking for a few key pieces that pack easily for travelling south this winter here is a closer look at a Spring Sampling From Mirasol featuring six new designs by Michelle Porter and Michele Meadows–
