Do you get the weekly Classic Elite web-letters? LinkI enjoy them. Who doesn't like to read about yarn? I enjoy seeing the new, free patterns. Several I have meant to try, but there are just so many hours in a day. Or so few it often seems!

I recently listened to the Webs podcast interview with Betsy Perry of Classic Elite where she talked about their new Mountain Top line, a collection of three natural, undyed yarns. I was anxious to try the Vail a light fingering weight of 70% baby alpaca and 30% bamboo.

So I got a couple of skeins (472 yards total) and have cast on an Evelyn A. Clark triangle. What could be a better companion for these dog days of August?

The ever-so-colorful Noro Wisp has finally been blocked. I couldn't be less enthused with a FO. Picture on Ravelry but I'm not even going to spend time posting here on the blog. Just not my thing.

The knitting of completely white Estonian is also finished, but I have no idea when I'll get the urge to block. I've spotted a problem with a stitch as well that will need to be addressed. Sigh.

Oh, Evelyn. It is so good to see you!

That's a beautiful color. It's always good to knit an Evelyn Clark design. Her patterns are perfection!

Seems my yarn closet is full of bright, colorful yarn but I never where anything I make with it. I think I've decided I like muted, natural colors to. Can't wait to see your newest EC design.
Cooler temps coming our way. Winter is coming!!!!

Jessica just finished a project with with baby alpaca. It's the softest thing I've ever felt. You two must be on to something.
