Classic Elite Liberty

There are 6 new colours of Liberty Wool from Classic Elite.
Liberty Wool is a super-soft, washable wool available in solid and printed colors. This yarn's balanced twist will make all stitch combinations pop. With all the great qualities of wool and the ease of machine washability, Liberty Wool knits at a gauge that suits many designs and is ideal for children's pieces as well as those for adults.
7840 Middle Earth
7841 Wild Paisley
7842 Pink Interruption
7843 Neon Parade
7844 Bright Smolder
7845 Spark

This is definitely one of my favourite yarns to knit with. You want to keep going to see what colour is coming next. I haven't had time to knit with it so I sent a scarf to Lynda.
The Two Directional Scarf from Classic Elite's book 9246 Accents 3. 4 balls are needed for the scarf.

Beth was looking for something to knit just after Roko's surgery. It had to be easy. It had to be a yarn with lots of colour. I suggested the Two Directional Scarf. Here it is.

I added a Bonnie Bishoff shawl pin for a different look.
Did I say that I love Liberty? Wannietta is knitting the Amalfi Poncho. 
Throw this basic poncho over a casual outfit for instant impact. Knit side-to-side in a long-color repeat yarn for high visibility.
The pattern is from the fall Knitscene 2013. We don't sell the magazine-I bought the digital version. You can see more pictures of the poncho on Ravelry... 

I could write a few more posts today to talk about more new yarns but I'm going to save them for the rest of the week. We've been busy finding shelf space. The store is definitely full right now!

It's a big TV night so I hope to get back to my knitting. Which project??
