This week Kathy talks with Betsy about the line of new Spring yarns from Classic Elite.
New Yarns include Meadowlark and it’s patterns, Bella Lino with its pattern book and a free wrap pattern, Cerro (a dyed version of Canyon) and the accompanying pattern book. And Kathy’s favorite patterns of the season are the Geneva Shawl in Soft Linen(check out the Classic Elite blog post about choosing colors!) and the Lady of Grace sweater knit in Ava, both of which appeared in our Spring 2014 catalog. Keep an eye out for brand new yarns from Classic Elite in June and July as well as new pattern books each month of the year!
