Project Planning – New Yarn

I’m absolutely crazy about crochet lately.  I have been working like crazy, there are ideas swirling around and around and I’m desperately trying to pin them all down so they don’t fly off into someone else’s conscience.

Right now I want to share with you the next project on the list, it’s using the lovely new Scheepjes Aquarel.  Well, Scheepjes have launched so many new yarns in the last year, it’s hard to remember what’s new and what’s new!

You might have seen me post a pic on Instagram a while ago showing off the gorgeous colours? Here’s what they all look like together, aren’t they amazing?

The Scheepjes Softfun Aquarel is a cotton acrylic blend (40/60%) and is the same composition as the regular Softfun and the hugely popular Softfun Denim. Plus, the colours across all three ranges are designed to work together, so you can easily combine any of the colours to work together.

The yarn calls for a 4mm hook and for your 50g you get 140 metres.

It’s a lovely stretchy yarn to work with, I really enjoy it.  The stitch definition is great, and the watercolour effect is beautiful when worked up.

Oh, and let’s not forget that now famous Easy Start tab.  Isn’t it just the best?

Next week I’ll show you some examples of what I have in store for you!  This theme is going to span a few months, as this won’t be the only project I share with you, so stay tuned!

You can buy this beautiful yarn at any Scheepjes retailer in the Benelux, or you can pick it up at Wool Warehouse or Deramores in the UK (and internationally).
