Versaci Knits Trunk Show

Did anyone say "ewe-phoria?" Chelsea Yarns had the pleasure of hosting a trunk show by Lori Versaci of Versaci Knits.  She brought her extensive collection of adult and baby patterns. Her congeniality was contagious as she shared the details of her journey through the yarniverse. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of her next trunk show!

October Knit a Long, Guernsey Wrap

With Fall in full force and everyone all settled down a bit we felt it was time to get back into the swing of things!
Well, what’s missing?
A Chelsea Knit A Long (aka KAL).
This month we would like to announce our KAL starting October 16th!
The Guernsey Wrap by Jared Flood, a simple rectangle wrap or scarf using 630 yards of worsted weight yarn.

We will be using four skeins of For Better or Worsted by Anzula, a beautiful worsted weight yarn which has 80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere and 10% Nylon.
200 (182 meters) yards per skein.

This super soft buttery, hand dyed yarn is available in over 50 colors on our website and in our shop in Colts Neck, NJ.
We put together some color options for this pattern or choose your own color.
Join the FUN!
There is a thread in our friendly Ravelry Group where you can chime in about your progress and share your photos!
