Do you remember my winter mood board? I made one for spring, too:
I am pretty thoroughly fascinated by a mix of floral prints and extremely minimalistic garments in various colors this spring. I have never been a huge fan of white, but I did purchase my first pair of white jeans, ever. I'm looking forward to wearing them. Note that I've pulled in some of the winter colors -- nude, various shades of green, black and that sort of smudged, gray blue are all present here too.
I am a knitter who really enjoys knitting year-round, and I like to have a few garments for early spring that will still keep me comfortable. I'm loving the crop-top trend this year, but only in smooth, tailored varieties -- nobody needs to be looking like they popped out of She's All That circa 1999. I love the idea of modifying the curved hem idea a bit with a longer sweater shape like this Lila pullover from Carrie Bostick Hoge:

I think I would knit it up maybe in a lighter weight yarn, maybe Shibui Staccato. Or I could use some of the linen I have in my stash, but I worry that the drape might go a bit overboard and obscure the hemline. I would love to wear this piece over floaty dresses so that the gathered fabric at the bottom would ruffle out from the hem.
In Iowa, it's pretty necessary to keep a few cozy sweaters around well into spring, so I'm going to be working on this Earl pattern. I taught a class on brioche knitting last year and really had a lot of fun with it -- the fabric is so squishy! I am going to make this in Annie Yarn's "Robin's Egg" colorway -- the yarn is gorgeous and something I already have in stash (it's from Yarnbox!)

What about you? Do you spend some time thinking about spring knits, or are you a seasonal knitter? If you're seasonal, what do you do instead of knitting in the spring?
