Spring Knits!

It's spring and it's hopping at Crazy Girl! We have a fresh order of DK weights Blue Sky Skinny Cotton and Cascade Ultra Pima waiting your needles, plus a whole selection of lighter weight yarns suitable for warm weather knitting.  (Coming soon--Koigu!) Need ideas? Look no further. We have suggestions for these lovely yarns just for you.

Meagan likes The Loop Entrelac Tank Top for our cotton DK choices. This saucy little top employs the entrelac technique, perfect for a challenging yet stylish summer project. 

The Larch Cardigan Pattern is Meagan's choice for those chilly early summer nights around the campfire! We can imagine singing camp songs and enjoying a crisp glass of wine while snuggling in this breezy cardigan.  
Using the hip and trendy color blocking technique, Vanessa thinks you should make Happy Street using any of our lightweight yarns. No need to worry about gauge--just cast on and get knitting during those long car rides to your vacation spot.
Not fully committed to the idea of making socks this summer? Thea asks, how about a pair of Turkish Bed Socks? We could do this in the upcoming Koigu in every colorway...
Let us not forget the little ones. Ann suggests Oleria in our new Skinny Cotton. Who can't see a little girl prancing among the wildflowers in this sweet sweater?
Like what you see? Give us a call at Coralville 319-341-9276 or Cedar Falls 319-266-9276 and we'll get you set right up for spring and summer knitting!
