Here are a couple of great free patterns from Classic Elite.
They are pretty and warm enough for cool fall evenings or for texting young ladies. Wool Bam Boo is a great DK weight yarn made from, as the name implies, 50% merino wool & 50% bamboo. It is soft, has nice drape and feels great next to the skin.
Cowls are huge this year and why not knit one that will keep you intrigued. This sampler cowl uses several different stitches to create a beautiful and warm finished piece. It is made from Lush, which is 50% Angora and 50% wool worsted weight yarn. It is soft and cuddly.
We carry both of these yarns. So download these great FREE patterns and come in to the shop and find your favorite color.
Yarns on Stage arrives in the shop tomorrow (10/16). It is a big darn deal for all you sock knitters out there. 10 different yarn companies have come up with an exclusive colorway for this event. You can look at the colors here. When it is gone, it is gone. So if you see a color you like, snatch it up. We will not have the Shibui yarn in at this time, however, because it is all stuck in customs. If you want one of them, please let us know and we will let you buy it and call you when it comes in.
New Yarn ALERT
We just got some great colors of Misti Alpaca Chunky. There are 4 bright new colors. Here is a picture of a cabled cowl made out of one of the new colors. It is a free pattern on Misti’s website. Thanks Missy for lending us the cowl to display the yarn.
We also received new colors of Fresco including 5326 – Magenta, 5349 – Blue Teal, 5356 – Pansy. They are bright and fun.
We now have some incredibly soft yarn. It is Quivit and Silk and it is out of this world. It comes from Qiviuk Boutique in Alaska. It is a little more expensive, but it is so divine. Don’t you think you are worth it?
Finally, I thought you guys might like to see a couple of fabulous projects done by our customers.
Brenda Selly crocheted this turtle blanket. Isn’t just the cutest thing?
Judy Crockett knit and felted this Weekender Sachel. It is just spectacular.
Great job, Brenda and Judy, keep up the magnificent work.
