Dear Mother Nature...

I don't know about you, but it seems to me that Winter has been allowed free reign for far too long in these parts.  There was more snow, blowing snow and drifting into the wee hours of this morning -- and we've been teased with above-zero temps and sunshine just enough to emphasize the Spring weather we're not getting -- at least not yet.

Easter was a week ago, and it was colder that day in much of this part of Canada than it was on Christmas morning.

Nurseries and hardware stores have their seed packs, starter kits and gardening supplies on display, front and centre, just waiting.

Grocery stores and florists are show-casing daffodils and tulips.

Friends on the Wet Coast (😉 ) are taunting The Rest of Canada, posting photos of sprouting blossoms on social media.

Here at The Crafty Lady we should be delighted.  Fall and Winter are busy seasons for us, because people have a hankering for yarn -- especially wool and wool blends -- to make cozy sweaters, hats, toques, mittens, scarves and socks for loved ones.  Crocheters are awash in toques and blankets that bring loving warmth.

But even avid yarn-crafters long for Spring, for cool, lacy tops, beach cover-ups, tank tops and decorative scarves on their needles and hooks, rather than all that toasty animal fibre.

So this week at the shop we're offering our own taste of Spring, with our Super Special sale of delicious Spring and Summer colours in this easy-care cotton blend:

100 grams = 245 metres (268 yards)
75% Acrylic
25% Peruvian Cotton

Regular Price: $8.50
Sale Price: $2.13

Note: to ensure the Spring Spirit is spread around,
there will be a limit of 10 skeins per customer!

See you in the garden!
