New From Classic Elite

New from Classic Elite is Cricket. A 60% cotton, 40% linen worsted weight yarn with a gauge of 5 sts/inch on US 6 (4mm) needles.
With 105 yards in a 50 gram ball, $6.50.
Cricket has a unique tweed look with it's tone on tone colors and with the blend of cotton and linen, it should have a nice drape.

CEY Cricket booklet has five beautiful spring patterns.

Christie is my favorite! Knit in color Daffodil #3950.

From left to right: Daffodil, Manzanilla, Natural and Blush.

From left to right: Celadon, Sky, Teal Blue and Navy Blue.

From left to right: Pumpkin, Cardinal, Bright Cerulean and Budgie.

We added a few new colors of Solstice by Classic Elite.
It's a blend of 70% organic cotton and 30% merino wool. It's so soft and the new colors are wonderful! We also got the latest pattern booklet using this yarn.

CEY Rocky Coast features four cute patterns using Solstice.

Daily Catch from the Rocky Coast booklet is the perfect summer cardigan with sweet lace detail.

CEY Shoreline features four designs using Allegoro, a sport weight 70% organic cotton, 30% organic linen. We added the new spring colors to the collection and they're beautiful!

CEY High Seas features 9 patterns using Silky Alpaca Lace, Pebbles, Firefly and more!

The Parkhurst shawl in the High Seas booklet is to die for! Knit with Silky Alpaca Lace, 1 ball each of colors Lake Chad and Cameroon.

Appledore, also from High Seas is a sweet shawl with a ruffled edge knit in Firefly, color Venice.

CEY Meadow is the new Firefly booklet! There are five cute summer patterns inside.

The Chicory & Clover cowl is adorable. What a perfect summer scarf. A quick lace knit and picking two colors to go together will be so much fun since with the addition of the new colors!

Firefly was probably our most popular yarn last summer so we were very excited to get the new colors this season! It's a sport weight 75% rayon, 25% linen that knits up to 24 sts/inch on a US 5 needle and is $8.50 a ball.

From left to right: Chicory, Hyacinth, Sour Apple, Cyprus, Sicily, Corsica, Capri and Linum.

From left to right: Crimson, Delos, Padua, Pink Petunia, Thistle and Brittania.

Here's my Firefly Fringed Scarf from last summer in color Hyacinth.
The pattern is from the CEY booklet Picnic. I love this scarf and made three different colored ones for myself!
