After a long time dreaming about it, my very special friend Claudia opens the doors to her wonderful yarn shop, Wollsinn, in Oppenheim/Germany. For many years Claudia has been cooking up a storm, dyeing beautiful yarns and selling them via her website. She is also one of the largest stockists of the gorgeous Isager Yarns I know, and when not dyeing or selling yarn, organises the Schwabsburger Wollfest with a friend and Knitting Retreats in Wales with me. We also work on many design collaborations together, and have come up with something very special for the opening tomorrow.

May I introduce my brand new design, Moya Star Shawl! This beauty of a shawl is made up of 40 crochet stars, specially designed to show off the gorgeous yarn from South Africa. The yarn is organically produced by women co-operatives, hand dyed and is the softest cotton I have ever worked with.

The shawl has been test crochet by my lovely friend Marianne and Claudia’s friend Manu just to make sure it is error free for you.

From tomorrow until next Wednesday, 24 September, the pattern will be exclusively available in Wollsinn’s shop, after that you will be able to purchase it from both Claudia and my website’s (more details will follow). We so hope you will love this shawl as much as we do!

Please join me in wishing Claudia many happy and successful years in her new stunning and welcoming yarn emporium.

Hello my lovelies, how are you all? Still enjoying the warm summer weather I hope.

I am so happy that I can finally introduce my latest design to you, I hope you like it as much as I do? Inspired by my love for all things vintage and using beautiful Scheepjes Catona yarn, the piece is made up of thirty seven separate pieces. There are five different motifs and seven different shades of this super beautifully soft 100% cotton yarn.

Yarn usage is kept to a minimum with the availability of the Scheepjes Catona Yarn in super handy 25g balls, one ball in each shade will make the complete table piece measuring just under 60 cm in diameter. The shades I used are 101, 130, 172, 238, 248, 257 and 263, but if brighter colours are more your thing don’t worry, there are 69 shades available to choose from.

Why not get yourself organised and have your yarn ready for next week when I will be posting instruction on how to make each of the motifs, you can choose your colours here.

This will be an absolutely FREE pattern download, so make sure to check back next week.

See you then!

Hello everyone, how has your week been? Good I hope!

Remember my inspirational photo from design seeds and the lovely Catona yarn I had from Scheepjes ?

Well, the cute little 25g balls have shrunk quite a bit as I have been very busy making them into lots of beautiful little crochet motifs. Just a few to make, ends to sew in and then assembly can begin.

Please stop by next week for the big Tah-Dah moment, I would love to share that with you!

Until then, enjoy!
