Blue Sky Alpacas – Pattern Preview!

December 2, 2010

Hi Spud & Chloë friends,

I’m back with another spectacular pattern preview from our other side of Spud & Chloë, our Blue Sky Alpacas side. I am so in love with our pattern collection for the upcoming season. I can’t ever remember loving an entire collection so much. We have the cream of the crop in designers and in yarns, never a better combination for knitting. I’ll let you know when the patterns are available for purchase through your local yarn shops and online yarn shops. It will be very soon. Now, I’ll get right to it!
