NEW From Mirasol

Sunday, February 15th, 2015

Spring can be a mixed bag of tricks, some days the sun warms you from the tips of your toes right up to the top of your head and other days, the wind can be as fierce as a high-spirited stallion rearing up into the stormy skies.  With all the weather-related changes in store for us, its nice to have a few new transitional pieces of knitwear to look forward to.

Here is a sampling of what’s NEW from Mirasol-
