#12monthsofhappy #madewithloops.co.ukHello Friends,

We are well into April and I am getting ready for this year’s Knitting Retreat taking place in the French Alps. Last preparations are in full swing, with workshop notes and programmes being typed as we speak. Soon I will be packing my suitcase ready for departure and the rather large box of yummy yarn will be loaded into the car. It’s all very exciting and I can’t wait meeting all our guests.

It is also time for this month’s instalment of the #12monthsofhappy dish/face cloth, so without further ado…

Hello friends,

I am so excited to be sharing my latest pattern release with you today:

The Darling buds of Spring Shawl

#darlingbudsofspring #madewithloops.co.uk

…I really hope you like it as much as do!

A while ago a new yarn company caught my eye on Instagram. Every day I would see lovely photos of new yummy yarn in my feed by a Dutch company called Yarn and Colors and every day I would sit and dream up things to make using those beautiful balls of yarn. One day I decided to write to them and see if they had a stockist in the UK where I could place an order. Instead they offered to send me some to try, all I had to do was pick the colours I wanted – That’s how this shawl was conceived 🙂

Here is what I chose:

#darlingbudsofspring #madewithloops.co.uk

 

I really wanted to make something in happy colours to blow away the winter blues. The shape itself is a long symmetrical triangle with increases on one side, and using a combination of stripes and simple eyelet lace gives the shawl enough interest when knitting it. A lovely stretchy I-cord cast off makes for a beautiful finish to it all.

#darlingbudsofspring #madewithloops.co.uk

The yarn is so so soft and a total pleasure to work with, a combination of 68% Cotton and 32% Acrylic, it gives good stitch definition, is durable and washes well.

I took it to the beach the other day and it did it’s job beautifully, keeping me snug and warm.

#darlingbudsofspring #madewithloops.co.uk

Working with 4mm needles makes for a quick project that can be finished in just a few evenings and is achievable even by less experienced knitters.  Before you know it you have a beautiful warm hug to wrap around your shoulders!

The pattern is now available as an instant download HERE and HERE. If you decide to give it a go I would love to see yours finished, so why not share it with me by tagging #darlingbudsofspring on social media.

Enjoy!

Hello my lovelies, how are you?

Only one more sleep and we are officially entering the Spring season…Hurrah!! and not a day too soon I say. We have had some lovely spring like weather already and sea’s of yellow daffodils can be seen everywhere. The first cherry blossom is out and the Magnolia trees aren’t far behind, it’s looking altogether more friendly outside.

I hope you have all been knitting away on your dishcloths and are eagerly awaiting March’s instalment. Just like spring, this one is a little more colourful…

I hope you like it!
