Did we skip to summer?

I don't know about where you are but around here it is feeling an awful lot like we just skipped straight from winter right into summer. The weather has just been out of control this last week, and today, we are forecasted for 28 and thunderstorms, sounds like late July to me! I'm certain we will return to some more seasonable conditions soon but in the meantime I can't help but pretend it is summer, with iced tea brewing, and scooped cones on walks after dinner. 

This thinking about summer has made me think about some seriously bright and vibrant yarn colours (if you checked my instagram, I am playing with some currently) but made me want to talk a bit about one that is just so appropriate this week ... Meaford Spring Buds! This was a colour created for last summer that I simply couldn't let go of, so added to the permanent collection. With the trees starting to bud and leaf in this phenomenal May weather, I thought I would take some time to share this colour and some inspirations and uses for it in your knitting, or your everyday life. To see all my inspiration of it, please visit my pinterest board.

Please do click through the photos to see their original sources! I don't know about you, but after seeing this it makes me want to play with Spring Buds, Granite, Sled Dog, and Coal in something stripy perhaps!

To make it even more appealing how about a two day coupon code on all Meaford Spring Buds yarn and spinning fibre. Valid until Saturday, May 9th at 11:59 pm eastern time, take 20% off spring bud items through the shop by colourway page with code ISITSPRINGORSUMMER. This code cannot be combined with any other offers.

Please note that the shop will be down this coming Monday, getting things prepared for our big launch and announcement on Tuesday morning!

And don't forget, you only have until the end of today to get any of the retiring bases before they are gone!
