A big box full of new things for fall surprised us on Tuesday. The first bit of Classic Elite’s collection for fall arrived.
We now have all of the colors in Liberty Print. Everyone loves this soft superwash wool so much, we are adding solid shades of Liberty Wool too. The first bit of the solid colors are here.
I was very excited to see Kumara, the delicious blend of merino and baby camel.
Not to brag, but I also managed to nab an advance copy of the pattern so I can start on this sweater right away. It will be nice to have the model ready when the Kumara pattern booklets arrive!
We also have an early bird skein of the new Toboggan, with the pattern for this cute little elf hat. Even though chunky yarns and elf hats aren’t her thing, mom is taking one for the team and working up this sample now.
Kari is almost finished with the Artiste scarf out of Kumara. We received an early copy of this pattern as well.
Looks like we’ll have several fun models ready to go when the pattern booklets arrive. If you too have your eye on some of these projects, give us a shout. We’ll reserve the booklet for you and let you know when they arrive.
It’s been one of those weeks that despite my best efforts, I’m not getting things done as quickly as I’d like. This stuff arrived Tuesday and I’m just now sharing it with you on a Saturday afternoon.
While this stuff is very cool, my next post is going to be about some really exciting new things that unexpectedly appeared on Thursday. I just need some relatively quiet time to do photo editing and such so I can effectively relay the excitement to you. Quiet time is in short supply with me this summer. Here’s why -
We’re having lots of fun and doing lots of crafts this summer, but it sure is interfering with my productivity. Looking forward to some quiet time next week so I can fill you in on cool things!
