Lacey Days

With the sun finally making an appearance, it's all about summery lace projects.
I'm a big fan of Classic Elite patterns, they're timeless and contemporary. We have a fabulous selection of their Silky Alpaca Lace and just introduced the new handpaint colors. A free pattern from Classic Elite's web letter, the Silky Alpaca Lace Scarf, by Tonia Barry is a simple openwork lace scarf knit with just one skein of Silky Alpaca Lace, shown here in color Tropical Fruit.

The finished measurements are 10.5" wide and 52" long.

The Yarn:
Silky Alpaca Lace is the perfect spring/summer yarn with 70% alpaca/30% silk.
Each 50 gram ball has 440 yards and gives a gauge from 17-32 stitches per inch on a US 2-9 knitting needle.
Solid colors are $9.95 each, handpaints are $11.95.

From top to bottom: Desert Flowers, Tropical Fruit, Cosmos and Turquoise Shadow.

Top to bottom: Midnight Forest, Antique Kaleidoscope, Sunlit Grotto and Wheatfield.

Shown here: Sunlight Grotto. The colors really pop with the 30% silk!
