Seriously? Today is May 1? At least it seems a little warmer than yesterday, you know – April! Today is the last day of April. If you asked me in January if we’d still be selling yarn for hats, I’d say no. But, here we are… in the chill of Spring! The god news is, we have wonderful cross-over yarns and projects. Those cross overs are yarns that will keep you warm not not overloaded with heavy wool. Although I have a number of projects going, I just casted on the the Filara Scarf. If is a 3-ball lace scarf in T-Shirt yarn knit on a size 19. You know I’ll be done by the end of the day if I get to it! This project is so perfect for this weather, I would love to send it to you! The easy lace pattern and 4 balls in your color of choice cost $44 with one contrast block and I’ll ship it the same day you call and order it – for FREE! Im making mine in hot pink with one block of color in blue. You can make it all one color listed below plus black and emerald green!
