Our very first trunk show is on its way. Yarn manufacturers and designers send out these samples to showcase particular yarns and patterns, knowing that we knitters and crocheters make our decisions as much with our hands as our eyes.
Classic Elite Yarns is sending us the sweaters, accessories, and toys in their darling pattern collection, Wee Ones. The pattern book will be on sale 20% off during the CEY Trunk Show. I can’t wait to see the shop turned into a wee little gallery. The show runs April 7-16. After that, we pack up the “trunk” and send it off to another local yarn shop for them to enjoy. (Later in the summer we’ll be receiving another trunk show, CEY’s Home Sweet Home.)
One of our customers has already made Arlo, the “peace sign” pullover at left, with our Universal Yarns Cotton Supreme. Not, perhaps, what Classic Elite would have wished, but the CEY pattern and Cotton Supreme yarn were the perfect match. The finished sweater is one of the cutest and softest you could ever hope to see… or touch!
P.S. – Remember to sign up soon for our CEY Yarn Tasting on April 30th, 4:30-6:00 p.m. There are only 20 spots available, and they’re going quickly. There’ll be five different yarns for you to “taste,” along with free patterns, door prizes, refreshments and more for just $15 per person. As it will be the day after the Royal Wedding, we’ll be sure to raise our glasses (at least once) to the happy couple!
