#adventgiveaway #madewithloops #shawlproject

Happy third Advent everyone! Only two more weeks and Christmas is upon us. Is is just me, or are the days flying passed at some super-sonic speed? So many things still to do, and so little time left to do them in! Zillion’s of projects still to finish, and my mind is already racing ahead planning new ones…I really must slow down a bit and work on something purely for my own pleasure. But before I do that, let me tell you about this weeks give-away.

#adventgiveaway #madewithloops.co.uk #springshawl

Remember the Spring Shawl? This is a design I did a little while ago as a free pattern during my time as a Scheepjes blogger. This week I am giving away the yarn to make one for yourself, because even though it is called the Spring Shawl, it’s really an all year round favourite.

The give-away consists of one ball Scheepjes Invicta Colour in shade 967 and one ball Scheepjes Invicta Extra in shade 1347, the only other thing you need is the pattern which you can download directly from here for free. The shawl is a quick and relaxing knit with a shape that is versatile enough to wear in many different ways.

To enter just subscribe to my blog and leave a comment telling me what it is you like about shawl knitting. This give-away is open to anyone anywhere in the world, providing your postal system is reliable enough to receive the package. The winner will be announced next Sunday.

Get commenting and good luck!

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!
