Yarn Tasting: Classic Elite

Wednesday, April 10, 2013
The food metaphors seem to abound this week. This past Saturday, I attended a Yarn Tasting sponsored by Mosaic Yarn Studio  and Classic Elite Yarns.


The staff at Mosaic Yarn Studio was very gracious. They served us our wine and appetizers and modeled that garments made in the yarns we were "tasting." This is the swatch I made during the two hours of experiencing the Classic Elite yarns. It consists of (from bottom)
Classic Silk
Giselle
Kumara
Alpace Sox and
Fresco

The yarns were all good to work with, but then I love most
Yarns and I really love color. It was fun to see all the different
color combinations provided to each of us by Classic Elite to stitch with.

It was a fun and relaxing evening attended by about 18-20 women pretty well split between crocheters and knitters in a friendly, bi-stitchural setting!
