Just in from Classic Elite

Fall is an exciting time at the shop as deliveries come frequently bringing wonderful new yarns. This week we received a 46 lb box from Classic Elite - my heart did flutter a little as the yarns are so soft and the colors so beautiful.

This is Toboggan, a chunky alpaca & merino blend that is super soft - above are half of the colors we received. It has a pattern book which has adorable sweaters & a beautiful cowl pattern in it.

The cowl takes just two skeins and is a great fast knit for yourself or to give away... early holiday knitting anyone?

We also received a sampling of Silky Alpaca Lace in neutral colors which are so soft and beautiful.

The soft colors work really well to make the Lowell Cowl, a free pattern from Classic Elite which is currently on display in our front window on the mannequin. Come by & see it for yourself.

Finally we brought back Kumara from last fall as it is a gorgeous camel & mohair yarn. It is soft and has great stitch definition, perfect for cables.

Come by and feel the softness!
