I am totally in love with this yarn…it’s called Stone Washed by Scheepjeswol, a fabulous Dutch yarn brand finally available in the UK at online retailer Deramores. This is a great yarn for many projects, but I think it is absolutely perfect for blankets. The yarn is super soft, comes in eight beautiful shades, and is a total pleasure to work with.

I don’t know about you, but I am a real lover of items made from fabulous fabrics. I admire designers who have an eye for amazing colour and pattern combinations. A couple of weeks ago I came across just one of those talented designers when browsing online market place Dawanda.

Tanja from near Hamburg in Germany, originally a Graphic Designer and Illustrator, and now working as a freelance Textile & Print Designer, started label ‘Die Elberbsen’ in 2008. Her distinctive style using an eclectic mix of pattern and colour has made her a firm favourite of mine already. As well as selling ready made items you can also purchase the patterns to make yourself. Go and visit her here.

Friday Finds is the second of my new weekly posts, and I am really getting into the regularity of it all. I had never thought of planning my blog posts before, but the knowledge of what I am going to do when is comforting and stops me from having panicky days of thinking what to write about next.

I hope you will enjoy this ‘new me’ too!

Have a lovely weekend all.
