 The trunk show for the Classic Elite booklet Abbey #9169 arrived today.
There are five cute patterns in this booklet all knit with Allegoro.  
Come in and check them out!  Here are a few photos of the designs:

 Oriel is a sweet short sleeved cardigan with all over lace detail.

 This would be a great cardigan over a summer dress or pair of jeans.  Knit in size small with color Raw Umber, 6 balls.

 Parapet, a soft scarf knit mostly in stockinette with rows of yarn over eyelets that create an interesting pattern.

 Bartizan is a vest with a simple cable crossing joining the fronts.  Michelle and Mary both fell in love with this and are already plotting their color choice.  Pictured in color Azure #5610.

 Ribbing along the sides shapes the waist.  Knit in size small, 5 balls.

 Joggle, a crocheted shoulder wrap with fringe on one side.  Shown in color Blush #5689.

Crocket is a a cap sleeved tee in chevron lace.  The back and front are knit the same.  This one is my favorite.  It's a great length and looks very cute!

Knit size small in color Imperial Purple, 6 balls.
