Spring KAL's: Just tell me whatcha want, whatcha really really want.

The Loops Troops are into spring knitting right now.  I mean, really into it.  Our spring yarns have been pouring into the store, and the texts have been flying back and forth, as we try to decide what to do for spring knitalongs (and crochet-alongs).

So I thought we'd ask you, our beloved customers, to help us decide.  This is a compendium of text and screen grabs, so be gentle on the quality of the photos, please :)

Lizzy Cowl/Poncho:

Swirl Skirt:

Lanesplitter skirt:

Stone's Throw Scarf:

Osage Cowl:

Lois Cowl:

Sexy Little Shawl:

Roberta's Wrap:

Dovetail Vest:

Honey Cowl:

Age of Brass and Steam:

Lace Ponchette:

Summit (photo from Ravelry):

Reixa (photo from Quince & Co.)

Net "Scowl" (crochet):

Cast your "vote" by commenting, either on this page or our Facebook page.  We'll announce the winning knitalongs and/or crochetalongs next week!

Thanks for playing!

The lace ponchette looks delightful and I'd love to participate in the knit-along of this gorgeous shawl. But do I knit it for myself, or someone else???? hmmmmmmm

Something with soft yarn (I won't finish with scratchy yarn) and something that's not too warm to wear. (Flashing. Stupid flashing.)
:) Otherwise, I'm up for about anything.

I love the swirl skirt. I have knitted a lot of pieces, but never a skirt. That would be a great knit-a-long. I love that yarn too!

I've had a lot of fun in Osage County many times over the years so Osage Cowl gets my vote

I like the Summit. It looks interesting and whimsical. Also seems you could use a lot of different yarns...

Roberta's wrap I think. Yarn to be chosen in a warm temp fiber...
