Is it still cold where you are? As North America looks forward to the season of spring, the temperatures have been such that it feels like winter will never loosen its grip. Warmer days are coming, but until they get here, we would suggest you use Manos del Uruguay's Serena yarn. This yarn is lightweight and warm, with a beautiful drape and a versatile gauge. Sweaters made in Serena will keep the chills away without any added bulk. Ahlohaknitting's Dahlia Cardigan in S2302 English, Andrea Sanchez's Mustill in S2444 Harbor and S2246 Oyster, and lollia's Chance of Petal Showers in S2133 Seashell are just a few wonderful examples of this. Crochet projects are a great way to showcase Serena. Look for the Spring 2014 Interweave Crochet for the Filigree Shell pattern by Natasha Robarge. The Augusta Shawl, a free download from Fairmountfibers.com, was crocheted by cherrybomb as a shop sample. Indigosky2Knit's Wrist Warmers show the variegation of our space-dyed colorway without pooling or flashing. As we wait for spring to arrive and settle in, we will enjoy working with the baby alpaca and cotton blend that is Serena. As always, we love to see your Manos yarn and project photos on your social media channel of choice. Find us on Facebook, Ravelry, Twitter, and Pinterest!
