Welcome Spring!

Welcome Spring by updating your wardrobe with one of these beautiful new shawls.


Reflecting the sensuous and lyrical music of opera, Ilga Leja's Marschallin emerges as a lavish, sumptuous shawl that transforms from a neck wrap into a capelet. Worked from one long side edge to the other, its similar to the lace-trimmed fichus worn by the ladies of the Austrian court to cover bare shoulders and protect against drafts.

Work Marschallin in your favorite DK or Light Worsted weight yarn.

Rose Lace Stole

And fragrant spring rose blossoms are Susanna IC's inspiration for her Rose Lace Stole, featured in the new Spring issue of Interweave Knits (along with 21 other projects), and it would be exquisite knit in one skein of Sandrasingh.com Lace. Susanna combined traditional Estonian stitches that resemble rose petals with simple quick to knit geometric lace as contrast and you can add beads for some sparkle.

Pretty Triangle Scarf

Knotsewcute's crocheted Pretty Triangle Scarf is a simple yet pretty design worked up fast to dress up any outfit. From row 3 until the edging the pattern is a one row repeat that is easy to memorize. Also, because there is hardly any counting its the perfect project for you to work while watching a movie.

The pattern calls for a Sock weight and any of exclusively hand dyed yarns in the Yarns On Stage collection will help you create an unique scarf from this easy pattern.

Thank you for taking a moment to share my news and Happy Spring!
