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!

Shawl Collage

I don’t know about you, but I like to be prepared for spring when it finally comes. Maybe it’s to do with the fact that January is my least liked month. Usually grey, cold and wet, as rarely do we have a lot of the fluffy white stuff these days, the excitement of Christmas gone and all beautiful decorations packed away for another year.

This calls for some excitement of a different kind, and what better way to brighten up our days than with some beautiful yarn in a  bright and cheerful colour. Scheepjeswol Invicta Colour is just that sort of yarn. Available in 21…yes 21 beautiful colours it is sure to but a bit of spring into your knitting.

I know what you are thinking…I only just made my South Bay Shawl using this yarn. Well ok, but you know, I loved it so much that I went ahead and got myself another ball of this loveliness. This time it is shade 964, beautiful pink and purple shades with a little dark grey and black running through. It’s always a little bit of a surprise using this yarn as one never knows exactly what lies in the depth of the yarn ball. But, I like surprises of the good kind and just for good measure I am throwing in some Invicta Extra in shade 1347, a little leftover from my Yarn Kit.

My head is buzzing with ideas! I am thinking semicircular which is an easy shape to wear. Some not too difficult lace, after all this is suppose to be a relaxing cheer me up project.

The possibilities are endless and I hope you will share in my excitement by following the Spring Shawl journey.

In the meantime you can drool over and purchase the yarn here or here.

Enjoy!
