Drive By Posting (re: TNNA)

Posted on | June 16, 2010 | 18 Comments

I’ll do a proper post about the weekend soon, but for now, I wanted to share a sneak peek of a new design I have coming out in Classic Elite’s upcoming Fall pattern booklets.¬† I caught a glimpse of this on Saturday¬†at Classic Elite’s TNNA booth.

It’s a bulky weight hoodie coat (with knitted in toggles) made out of Ariosa, a very lofty large gauge yarn. Because of the way Ariosa is spun, there is a lot of yardage per 50 grams. So, despite the bulky gauge, this coat is amazingly light.

And my design made the cover! I think this is my first cover project :)

Be back soon with more!

    So cute! I love that stitch design. And the hood looks like a total normal size! I hate when really cute sweaters have oversized hoods. Love it!

    Wow, this looks fabulous! And a perfect sweater/coat for the Pacific NW winter (i.e. it doesn’t really get cold enough to warrant wearing a “real” coat most of the time!).

    Love the coat! I can anticipate my girls begging me to make your hoodie for them.

    Cute! And the yarn sounds great – loft is such a good thing for bulky yarn, especially for a longer coat. Congratulations on the cover.
