Changing leaves, cooler nights ... fall is here! I thought I would share with you some great new fall yarns now in stock, and I am proud to announce a pattern published by Classic Elite, designed by none other than myself! The new pattern is a smart jacket that I designed last spring called the Icicle! Click here for Icicle Pictures 'n Details!
The Icicle jacket is knit from one of my favorite yarns: Classic Elite’s Ariosa, a soft, warm, extrafine Merino. The Ariosa yarn is the focus of the “Great Brook” pattern pamphlet, which includes the Icicle!
I love the Icicle jacket not only because of the yummy yarn, but because it is a stylish, casual jacket, and it has lots of easy knitting, with cables providing interest. In celebration, we put the Ariosa yarn on sale at 20% off, and have five popular colors in stock [Slate Gray, Russet, Jet Blue, Damson (purple) and Balsam (green)], ready to be knit into Icicles! Bonus: Order enough Ariosa to make the Icicle jacket, and we will throw-in a free digital copy of the Icicle pattern! Double Bonus: Free Shipping! (Free pattern offer ends Oct. 31st).
“What about other new fall yarns?” you ask ... We have added about 40 new yarns to our collection, including tons of popular new fall yarns. New yarns include a good selection of Rowan, Classic Elite, and Skacel yarns. The Classic Elite Crestone and Vista yarns are immensely popular ... knitters can’t get enough of the Knoll Skirt and the Highland Fling Shawl patterns ... checkout the Ravelry forum. The Rowan Felted Tweed is flying off the shelves! The new Skacel yarns are all the rage in support of Michelle Hunter’s new Knit-Along.
The knitting and crochet world is going digital! We are happy to announce that all of the Fall 2011 Classic Elite patterns will soon be available as electronic downloads on our site. Each pattern will cost about $6.00. No need to purchase an entire book to get the pattern you love ... so click to get a pattern, grab some yarn and get knitting! We should have all the Classic Elite Fall 2011 patterns online by next week ... if the pattern you are looking for is not yet online, drop us a note!
