April's Stitches bring May's Finished Projects

What I love the most about is assisting my clients. I have an unique opportunity to speak with fiber enthusiasts from all walks of life and from all parts of the globe and I've noticed we all have one thing in common, our delight in hand knitting for those we love, and this includes ourselves! Thank you for being a customer, together let's celebrate the arrival of April's balmy weather with your joy for knitting and cast on one of these new light weight projects, you'll be wearing it by May.

In This Issue: Airy & Light Scarves by HeartStrings / Spring Maple / Cardis & Vests /

Airy & Light Scarves by HeartStrings
These two new designs by HeartStrings' are both knit in open and airy lace just right for gentle breezes. The Lacy Serpentine Scarf is knit side-to-side along its length in an amazingly easy pattern that looks more complicated than it really is.

And mesh knitting is popular right now, for a shorter look cast on the ascot-like scarf I Heart Filet Lace and wear a heart on your heart. The lace mesh looks like filet lace crochet or darned netting, but is actually knit. The boldly outlined hearts at each of end are set against the background of lace mesh and its knit in only 1 skein of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock.

Spring Maple
I'm working with 5 different knitwear artists at the moment developing new Exclusive Patterns for my Lace and 1 Ply Merino Worsted. Without giving to much away, some new lace projects and a vest will soon be ready to be properly introduced to you! Recently you met the first design in this new series, Linda Choo's Spring Maple shawl. Rejoice in the showy fiery red leaves that bloom on the Japanese Maple tree each Spring. Choo's triangular shaped shawl showcases this leaf's delicate design in one skein of my Lace. Do you belong to Raverly? Choo herself is hosting a KAL for Spring Maple in her group, Fans of Linda CC and everyone is welcome.

Cardis & Vests
A light weight cardi to casually slip over your shoulders, a lacy vest to finish your look, these are the garments of Spring. Slip on Rebecca Hatcher's
