*New* Fall Yarn (and free patterns!)

The Fall season is in full swing, and I just wanted to take a moment to share some of my favorite yarns of the season. Of course we have many more, but these three are *NEW* to the yarn market this season and are absolutely gorgeous. The free pattern support is also a great plus!

First up is Classic Shades Lite Sequins. This lighter-weight version of the very popular Classic Shades (we carry Classic Shades, Classic Shades Solids, and Classic Shades Big Time)is flecked with sequins of coordinating colors. With 264 yards/skein, just a couple skeins will go a long way. The free pattern below calls for only two skeins!

Next is Casablanca by Cascade Yarns. This has got to be my favorite yarn of the season. It is a wool/silk/mohair blend with a long striping pattern. If you like Noro's Silk Garden, I highly recommend this yarn! It is soft, beautiful, and has a great price point of $17.00 for 220 yards (Noro Silk Garden commonly retails for $11/110 yards). Cascade Yarns also has wonderful pattern support! Heidi at Warm Hearts Yarn just finished a sample, along with a free pattern, of a one-skein scarf out of Casablanca. Come on in and check it out!

Finally is a beautiful tweed yarn by Elsebeth Lavold, Tweedy Wool. Perhaps it is my Scottish heritage, but I naturally gravitate towards tweeds. There is just something earthy, yet sophisticated about it. Below if a free pattern, courtesy of Knitting Fever and Elsebeth Lavold.
There is plenty more to see at the shop this beautiful fall season, so please stop by!
