The weather is often dreary here in Western Oregon, even on the second day of spring. So, why not add some sparkle to your life?
Here at Close Knit, we carry many fun, festive, sparkly yarns for your spring projects.

We've got subtle
and not-so-subtle
and everything
So, if the clouds are getting you down, stop by the shop and check out some sparkly, shimmery yarns that will brighten your day.

Yarns top to bottom:
1. Plymouth Yarns Dye for Me Baby Llama Glow - a worsted weight llama and stellina blend - can be dyed or used as is - a creamy natural with silver flecks. Use Baby Llama Glow for a slouchy hat or beret or a cozy cowl.
