We’re more or less back to the waiting game on our new spring yarns this week!
But we did receive a new sample, the Flecha Cowl which knits up in one skein of Manos del Uruguay Serpentina (which is gorgeous!). This is a free pattern with interesting construction – we think it makes a fun knit and a great accessory!
From Manos del Uruguay: Handspun from handpainted merino tops, Serpentina is a truly artisanal product. Each skein is unique, and the colors are totally random — they will not stack or pool. The ultra-soft superwash merino in a quick-knit gauge calls for next-to-the-skin wear like cowls and hats.

Keely is wearing Amaryllis by Elizabeth Smith, which combines classic top-down, seamless construction with a flattering “wear with anything” A-line silhouette. It drapes beautifully with Serena from Manos del Uruguay.
From Manos del Uruguay: This season-spanning blend of pima cotton and baby alpaca has fantastic drape for scarves, wraps, cardigans, and summer tops. The fiber blend and our kettle-dyeing process give the colors a heathered, stonewashed look. Although it’s labelled as a sport- to dk-weight yarn, Serena’s gauge is very versatile, from 4 1/2 sts per inch all the way to 7. Try it for crochet, too!
