It's Spring, it's Spring!

I've been wearing sandals for two days now - and it's funny to look at the leftover snow in the front yards at the same time.

In the "business of yarn" we worked on Spring last Fall. When the designs finally come out it's so old news to me that I forget that it's brand-spanking new to you! Here's what I came up with, I hope you like.


This is a slightly A-line Cardi in one of our new Artful Yarns, called "Cliché".



A top in "Marine" - a slinky, variegated yarn. It's knit in the round up to the armholes, then split for front and back.



This is - next to the "Cliché" cardi in Artful Yarns - my favourite of the Reynolds designs: A tunic in "Soft Linen".



A raglan knit in a new yarn that's called "Rise and Shine" - it's a play on the fact that it's made of 50% cotton and 50% mercerized cotton, which definitely lends some shine to it. (I can't help it, but the lady doesn't look 100% thrilled to be wearing it....or is it just me?)



A tee in "Top Seed Cotton", which is mercerized and hard wearing. Meaning that it can be thrown in the wash lots and lots of times and it only gets softer. The neckline on this one was a real puzzler, it took me a while to figure it out to my satisfaction.

Mona, these are all great, but I agree with you, I love the Cliche one best! Do you have any pics of the sweater I did for you guys?

Connie said...

Oh, and did you knit all of these yourself? If so, you must be lightening quick! This is a lot of sweaters.

Wow, I like everything! The first one is my favourite. Good job!

I like these a lot! I think the Rise and Shine one would be the one I'd probably want to wear the most, it looks comfy. :)

Wow, that's a *lot* of work -- they're all nice, but that last one? It has my name written All Over It....
