Cricket Trunk Show

Hanging in the shop right now is the Cricket trunk show from Classic Elite, featuring all of the garments knit from the booklet Cricket and each one is beautiful.
Cricket, a 60% cotton/ 40% linen, worsted weight yarn has been so popular with the weather warming up.

Christie is my favorite. A simple cap sleeved cardigan, worked in one piece with sweet little pockets and a shawl collar. I love the texture, the fit and especially the color (daffodil)!

Hope is a another summery short sleeved cardigan with lace detail and ribbed shaping.
Pictured here in color Natural in a size small.

The button band is knit using a simple eyelet pattern. Very cute.

Shanda is a two color square neck pullover with 3/4 length sleeves. I like how the designer took a simple shape and had fun with color (shown in colors Manzanilla & Teal Blue). This has a great fit too!

Faith is a reversible leaf stitch wrap worked from side to side, shown in color Celadon.

Last is Carina, a tank top with rib and leaf detail on the front and back knit in color Budgie. The perfect summer top.

We love Classic Elite's pattern and it's even more exciting to see them knit up in person, so come in and check them out! We will have them hanging in the shop until the 13th, then even more CEY summer trunk shows to follow.
