Happy Thursday my lovely peeps…how are you all? Well I hope!
As promised I want to share my Easter Table Set pattern with you today. Hopefully you have all purchased some Scheepjes Larra and Lizzy in colours to match your rooms or other Easter Deco you might want to use on your table. It really is not difficult to find something matching as they are 49 shades of Larra and 11 shades of Lizzy to choose from, simply delicious!
You also need 3.5mm knitting needles and a 3.5mm crochet hook and when you are all set, just download the pattern by clicking this link HERE!
Now all you need is a nice cup of tea or coffee, your favourite chair to sit in and you are ready to begin (maybe the odd chocolate Easter egg would be lovely too)!
Have fun and please let me know how you get on, or even better why not mail me with some photos, I would love to see which colour combos you choose.
Hello dear readers, how have you been? I hope you all had a great week.
I had a lovely time with my sister visiting, spending many hours catching up whilst drinking tea, eating cake and knitting…a lot!
Sadly, as always when having a lovely time, the week went by in a flash and my ‘little’ sis has gone back to Germany already (sad face!)
Even though we did a lot of knitting I didn’t get much time to work on my Easter Table set using my beautiful Scheepjes Larra and Lizzy yarns. I have made a good start though and really like the look and feel of it so far. Finger’s crossed I have it done by next week to show you the completed set in a proper Easter table setting.
Happy Thursday everyone! It’s a grey and very wet day here in North Wales, how has it been where you are? Better I hope!
I needed something to cheer me up! What better way than working with beautiful yarn in stunning fresh colours and hook in hand. This is what I came up with…I hope you like it? I am calling it “Bloom”, just like this gorgeous new yarn by Scheepjes.
Bloom is a soft unmercerised 100% Cotton Yarn. It is spun in a special way with a hollow core making it very light in weight, with absolutely no splitting. Perfect for blankets and other homeware, it works up pretty quickly using a 5mm hook, is washable at 40C and is available in a stunning array of 24 colours. Go and check it out here.
Today I like to share the pattern for this blooming pretty square with you. You could make a cushion, a blanket or even mix and match this raised square with my flat flower square, available here . The possibilities are endless, so let’s get started…

The lovely people at Scheepjes have done it again! Lot’s of new beautiful yarns in lush colours just in time for Spring & Summer. I have great pleasure introducing them to you here over the next weeks.
Today it is all about Soft Fun Denim. This is a 60% Cotton/ 40% Acrylic Yarn, super soft and light it works up a treat. Perfect for all manner of Projects, but I like it especially for homewares as it is light and washes well at 30 C. As you can see it has a subtle colour variation like hand dyed yarn, it is available in eleven stunning shades and I have heard a little whisper that it will be available to order from Deramores in the next week or so.
To celebrate the launch of this beautiful addition to the Scheepjes family I am releasing my Flower Granny Square in Dutch today. Just click on the photo for a larger version to print out.
