Two New Colors in Liberty Wool Print are 10% Off!

Liberty Wool Print in Sugar Spun
What would you get if you combined all of your favorite cotton candy flavors into one pile?  Well, it would be quite a mess, but it sure would be pretty!  Get the same effect, without sticky fingers, with "Sugar Spun" the newest color of Classic Elite Yarn's Liberty Wool Print. Sugar Spun is a harmony of red, pink, gray, brown, purple, blue and green that will make you think sweet thoughts of cotton candy, rainbow sherbet and lollipops.

Not quite your style?  "Floral Hallucination" is Liberty Wool Print's bold collision of green, blue, pink and red.  This floral combination is not for wallflowers!  Wear Floral Hallucination and you'll be noticed! 

Floral Hallucination
Bonus:  Buy these two new colors this month and you'll save 10%!

Liberty Wool Print is Classic Elite's soft worsted weight, machine washable 100% wool yarn.  It is a self striping yarn in a huge assortment of awesome colors.  Sugar Spun and Floral Hallucination are just two of over 30 colors!
Want some free stuff?  Who doesn't?  Buy Liberty Wool Print yarn in any color and you can choose one of two great blanket patterns - FREE!  A crib blanket is always a welcome gift for a newborn (especially when it's machine washable!), and who doesn't like to snuggle under a cozy throw while watching TV at the end of the day.   As soon as we process your yarn order, you will find your free pattern waiting for you in your account as an electronic download! 

Any cool Liberty Wool Print stuff on Ravelry?  You betcha!  Ravelry.com has over 1,300 projects made from Liberty Wool Print ... the project ideas are endless! 
Bold color combinations just not your style?  Do you have a project in mind that is more "Plain Jane" than "Fancy Nancy"?  Liberty Wool is the same great yarn as Liberty Wool Print, but in solid colors.  Knit plain with Liberty Wool, or combine Liberty Wool and Liberty Wool Print to highlight a single color.

Spring 2013 Patterns - Printed Pamphlets or PDFs!

Classic Elite Yarn has an impressive collection of sixteen new pattern pamphlets for Spring 2013!  I am honored to have two of my new designs published this season. My lace and cable sweater “Diana” is featured on the cover of the “Year Round” pamphlet, and my versatile vest “Bluebird” in the “Bird's Nest” pamphlet.

The Bluebird vest in Cricket
"Bluebird" is a casual vest with pretty eyelet detailing along the front edges.  It's a great layering piece that can be worn open or wrapped with a belt.  I designed it using Classic Elite's Cricket yarn, a blend of cotton and linen that provides great drape and softness.  We've got sixteen fun tone-on-tone colors to choose from! 

Bonus:  Cricket is 20% off as part of our spring yarn sale!

In Roman mythology, Diana was the goddess of hunting, associated with nature and the woodlands.  You will be a knitting goddess after this challenge!  The Diana pullover is adorned with beautiful columns of leaf lace and a subtle scalloped neck.  This one is a perfect piece for the more experienced knitter!  The pullover is knit with Classic Elite's Solstice yarn, an organic cotton with a bit of merino wool.  We've got eighteen goddess-worthy colors of Solstice to choose from!

The Diana pullover in Solstice
Bonus:  Solstice is 20% off as part of our spring yarn sale!

The Spring 2013 Classic Elite patterns are available as a traditional pamphlet, or each pattern can be purchased individually in electronic form as a PDF.  You will have the option to choose the format you like best, and help is always available on our download help page or by calling the store at 815-777-3550.

Liberty Wool Print - Great Yarn, Plus a FREE Pattern!


Liberty Wool Print in Stained Glass
It is a Cloudy Dawn day under a Bronze Sky when I sip my Fruit Flavored drink and kick some Red Hot Blue embers into the Campfire, wishing I was beside a Caribbean Tidepool, or maybe under Majestic Mountains gazing out over North Sea Whitecaps . . . 

Am I drinking while typing?  Writing a trashy romance novel?  No!  I’m using as many Liberty Wool Print color names in a sentence as  I can.  Ok, so maybe the sentence doesn’t make any sense – but I sure am mentioning a lot of pretty colors!

Liberty Wool Print is Classic Elite's soft worsted weight, machine washable 100% wool yarn.  It is a self striping yarn in a huge assortment of awesome colors.  We have over 30 colors to choose from

Any Great Patterns? Besides the zillions of worsted weight patterns available, Classic Elite has published two pattern booklets, Accents and Palette, and now the patterns in each pamphlet are available as an individual electronic download!  These patterns are designed to take advantage of Liberty Wool Print's self striping.  Get the whole booklet, or choose individual patterns. 
 
Bobble Bind-Off Scarf and Neckerchief
Got any FREE Patterns? Yep, Classic Elite has been hard at work with a set of free electronic patterns. Buy any quantity of the Liberty Wool Print and receive a free copy of a Classic Elite pattern!  The patterns change each month; until Friday, May 10th you can choose between the Bobble Bind-Off Scarf or the Neckerchief.  As soon as we confirm your payment for the yarn, you will find your free pattern waiting for you in your account as an electronic download!
