In Celebration of Spring - Let's put as much color on our needles and hooks as we see in our gardens! Luscious pinks, purples and reds mixed with grassy greens and seaside blues blend with a few stormy grays and starlit darks and an entire prism of color emerges! Let's celebrate this explosion of color - All Prism Yarns 15% off through close of day June 1, 2014!
This includes the beautiful Merino Mia's which offer a beautifully twisted, soft and easy to knit yarn which has lovely sheen and vibrant, clear colors.
