It’s not too early to start thinking about the holidays. A few new things just arrived that make great gifts and stocking stuffers.
Love the Bee Bars? This pretty gift lotion bag includes a small bee bar and lip butter, packaged in a pretty organza bag.
Available in seven combinations of scents/flavors. $12.50 each.
These cute little snail tape measures just arrived and are flying out the door. We had no idea snails could move so fast!
Available in lime, turquoise and hot pink. $2.99 each.
There is nothing better than homemade vanilla, plus it looks so pretty sitting on the counter.
These homemade vanilla kits have everything you need to make your own vanilla…just add the vodka.
It takes about 8 weeks to infuse, so if you’d like to have it ready to use by the holidays you need to start now.
If you are giving it as a gift, the tag has a place to list the date it will be ready to use so you need not fret if you don’t have it ready in time.
We still have a supply of the juiciest vanilla beans around. Vanilla kits $15.95 ea., vanilla beans $1.75 ea.
We also have a few new designs that make great gifts. Wynter is one of the new fall yarns that recently arrived. I couldn’t help but notice that the color range really lent itself for school and team colors. So I set out to create a design for all that would incorporate these colors well.
The Shifting Stripes scarf is really cool to knit. The pattern is created using very simple short rows. It’s great worked in team colors or other fun color combinations.
New to short rows? We have a class on this scarf coming up on Saturday, November 23.
Ava is another new yarn from Classic Elite for fall. I wanted to use it in a way that would accentuate its sparkle.
I decided to combine it with Pirouette, a delicate mohair/bamboo with a sheer drop stitch pattern.
The Sheer Elegance cowl is the final result! Makes a great gift, and is a fabulous way to add a little sparkle to your holiday attire.
These are just a few of the many great project ideas we have for you. Come in and see for yourself!
This Saturday we have a great class on how to knit Mittens and Gloves. We have several styles of colorful designs ranging from super easy to more involved.
Class is Saturday from 10 to 3. Hope you can join us!
We do have a little late fall surprise arriving next month that I think you’re really going to like. Check it out…
Everyone loves Chalet, the super soft and luxurious alpaca/bamboo blend from Classic Elite’s MountainTop Collection. So far it has only been available in undyed natural shades. Next month, they’re introducing Chateau, which is basically Chalet in 8 gorgeous colors. We can’t wait for our order to arrive!
There will also be a new pattern book featuring Chateau, Chalet and many of our other favorite yarns from Classic Elite.
I am buying spring yarn in a few weeks – can you believe it?
