The weather may still be wintry but our thoughts are turning to spring. Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton is the perfect yarn for springtime projects. The fresh colors remind us of flowers, grass and budding trees. A stroll through Ravelry turned up some great pattern ideas.

The cowl trend is still going strong. Soon (we hope) the weather will be too warm for our woolen cowls so this Canaletto Cowl is a wonderful transitional piece for your wardrobe.

Que Sera from Knitty offers feminity with a vintage flair.

Organic Cotton is always popular for baby items. It's so wonderfully soft and snuggly. The Tiramisu blanket is a lovely yet simple crocheted blanket.

Or explore color with the Chevron Blanket from the Purl Bee.

Best of all, these patterns are all free!

Organic Cotton is 15% off through March 25.
