Signs Of Spring

“Between winter and summer lies a beautiful spring”…….and it is never too early to start searching for signs of it.  For some, it can be a trip down south to get reacquainted with the warmth of the sun, a visit to a neighbor’s greenhouse to see tiny sprigs of greenery, or a walk through the mall to glimpse splashes of colour on mannequins.  Meanwhile for knitters, the quest begins at the local yarn shop browsing through the latest collection of patterns, and yarns, an instant way to refresh the senses and shed the cold weather fatigue.

 

Sirdar Cotton DK

Sirdar Cotton DK

Rich in colour and texture, Sirdar Cotton DK makes its spring debut long before the crocuses bloom.  Incredibly soft to the touch, this pure cotton yarn radiates with lustre in eighteen shades covering the spectrum in a palette of classic neutrals to fashion brights.  Complimented by a full range of knit and crochet patterns that look fresh and inviting, Sirdar’s design team strikes gold with fab handbags, breezy wraps, stylish shells, and refined cardigans.
