New patterns and New Yarn

This is a new yarn by Crystal Palace that I test knit. It is called Bunny Hop. It is a micro fiber and angora blend. It feels wonderful as you are knitting it and has almost a velvet feel when it is done. I would highly reccomend this for a quick elegante project. The pattern is Quilted Luxury and will be up on the Crystal Palace web site soon.
This is another new yarn and pattern for Crystal Palace. This is Panda Cotton and is a blend of Bamboo, Cotton and elatic. This was a fun knit with a little different feel. the Bamboo has a slightly different feel to it but with the wonderful combination it not only feels good knitting but it also gives a wonderful fabaric when finished.Unlike other yarns with elastic added it slides smoothly on the needles and doesn't have the rubbery feeling of other yarns. This is a yarn that yelled at me when I saw it. With the Natural feel of the yarn and the color combination it was yelling I have to be fall leaves!So that is what it became:D this pattern will be up on the Crystal Palace Web site soon also. www.straw.com/cpy/gallery/sockgallery2.html this will take you to the most recent patterns and upcoming patterns for crystal palace socks! Enjoy looking around :D
These are Pictures of the new toe up design of mine. This will be coming out in Freindly socks book 2 Socks A-Z.

As you can see I am having fun with yarn and trying to keep up with all of the designs that are in my head:P I will check back in over the weekend with a few more designs I am working on.
