It's going to be one of those weekends. The kind where my daughter has a dance competition in one city while two of my boys have ball games in two different cities, all at about the same time. I'm pretty sure it's going to be tricky for two parents to be in three places at once, so if anybody has a magic solution for that, be sure to let me know! Even so, we've had an exciting and busy week here at CKC too, so it seems I have my work cut out for me. Be sure to stick around and see all the great patterns, announcements, and promotions we have going on! Lots of great stuff ahead.
For starter's, we have two new releases that go hand in hand! Introducing Emmalyn's and Elijah's Knit Cardigans! They are super trendy, very adorable, and here's why you want both: Emmalyn's has raglan style sleeves; Eljah's has regular. Emmalyn's has a slimmer girly fit; Elijah's is looser at the shoulders/chest, perfect for boys. Emmalyn's has slimmer style bands and adorable slant pockets with trim; Elijah's has wider bands and grandpa-style pockets.
They BOTH include two versions: pull-over and button-up. Both come in multiple sizes: Emmalyn's for Dolls, Babies, and Toddlers; Elijah's for Babies, Toddlers, and Tweens. These two patterns are your new brother/sister must-have's for comfy knit this winter and even on into spring!
This week we also released Callahan's Ruched Peasant Dress for Babies, Girls and Tweens! Callahan's has two fun skirt options: stripwork and simple. The stripwork skirt puts a unique ruched twist on the typical stripwork skirt, and is perfect to showcase a collection of fabric coordinates. The simple skirt option is highlighted by a beautiful ruched band around the bottom -- perfect for highlighting one favorite fabric on the skirt. All sizes of Callahan's are on sale for 30% of this weekend only.
