New Spud & Chloë Patterns – Preview!

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

We are so incredibly proud to preview our new pattern collection for spring 2011! These will be available very soon and I will keep you posted as soon as they are released to the yarn shops. I am incredibly proud to be involved in a such a fun and spirited yarn line and we have the best of the best designers joining us this season! This pattern collection is on fire!

Please enjoy and remember that these patterns are not available just yet. I will preview the Blue Sky Alpacas patterns, too, and you will not believe your eyes when you see that collection either. It is spectacular to say the least. You will see some of your favorite designers popping up in both lines.
