Hello my lovelies how have you been? Good I hope and hopefully you have not been snowed in and wrapped up warm in winter woollens during these past very cold days (that’s for us on this side of planet earth).

Today I am exuberantly happy to be able to share my finished Spring Shawl with you. What do you think? I am just a little bit in love with it!

The shawl is light and fluffily cosy, adding just the perfect warmth to shoulders and neck. It is fairly long and not too wide so that it can be wrapped around the neck a couple of times, or comfortably around the shoulders. I have kept the style simple, adding just a little eyelet interest and a cute little picot cast off border. Another really important fact is that it doesn’t break the bank, I know how after Christmas we are all on a budget spending cut.

Next week I will publish the pattern here on the blog and the best news is…it will be absolutely free! Go and get your yarn ready by visiting the Deramores website (link on the left panel), you need 1 ball of Scheepjeswol Invicta Colour and 1 ball of Invicta Extra, and then make sure to come back here next Thursday for the pattern release.

See you then!

Spring Shawl Collage

Hello friends and fellow knitter’s! It’s been a dull and grey week with rain, fog and today even snow. During days like these I am always glad to be working in my studio. My wall of yarn, various moodboards, watercolour paintings by ‘my man’, the artist Mark Gittins, and other colourful bits and pieces definitely keep me happy and cheerful when the world outside looks a bit gloomy.

After returning from Germany and catching up on household chores, I have spent most of my time in said colourful studio, working on various new ideas. A big chunk of time has been spent working on my Spring Shawl project and after a couple of unhappy starts and ripping back, it is now growing into something I am really happy with.

In the end I decided to let the beautiful Scheepjeswol Invicta Colour Yarn speak for itself and not distract from it by using an overly busy pattern. I am working in garter stitch throughout, just throwing in the odd row of Invicta Extra for added interest.

I am hoping to have the shawl finished by next week to be able to share the Ta-Dah moment with you.

I hope you will join me for that, until then…

Happy Knitting & Crocheting!
