So many customers have come in to the shop and admired the Rocketry Baby Blanket and Cardigan set that Jill knit up as samples a while back.
The patterns for these two projects are really nice and because the Dream in Color Classy is a little pricey, we've been helping people find substitutions in colors that are similar, but less expensive. The Classy version takes 6 skeins of Classy, 1 each in 6 different colors. It's enough to make the blanket and sweater and costs $108.
An easy substitution is Berroco Comfort. This worsted weight yarn comes in wonderful bright colors and is quite soft and machine washable. If you choose to use the Comfort, you need to purchase 7 skeins (1 each in 5 different colors, and 2 of the sixth color.) At just $5.75 each, that comes to $40.25. Big savings!

If you like the colors we used in our shop model, you'd want to get the Berroco Comfort in Pimpernel, Dutch Teal, Purple, Seedling, Kidz Orange and Delft Blue.

We've also made up a few combos for customers wanting some different mixes, so you may also like:
~ Seedling, Adirondack, Primary Blue, Deft Blue, Navy Blue and Agean Sea OR
~ Seedling, Dutch Teal, Primary Blue, Purple, Pimpernel and Filbert OR
~ Teaberry, Rosebud, Turquoise, Cornflower, Agean Sea and Rasberry Sorbet

And in another attempt to save some money, did you know you can buy the PDF versions of these patterns for less $$$? We've just added a bunch of Tilli Tomas PDF patterns online too.
