Last week I told you about this gorgeous new yarn that had landed on my doorstep, and now I want to share a progress report with you.
I’m making a new stool cover to be able to interchange with my Egyptian Star Flower Stool cover and it’s really coming to life in just the way that I imagined. The katran inspiration was right on the money!
So, do learn from a mistake that I made here: the stool was almost finished when I realised that I made it way too big, so had to frog it. So, no matter how much I love the yarn, it’s not made for frogging. It’s definitely not a yarn you can just rip out, you have to be careful and take it slow, otherwise you’ll destroy it.
Having said that, the effort is worth it. Doesn’t it make a beautiful ball?
So I have the final amounts ready, you’ll need three balls of Secret Garden in your favourite colourway.
Get the yarn from Wool Warehouse for £4.39 (€5.39) per ball with global shipping.
In North America, Love Knitting/Crochet stocks it for $5.50 USD per ball.
In the Benelux, go to any one of the great Scheepjes stockists, and if you’re looking for a lovely day out head to Sparkelz-Creatief in Zuidhoorn, just outside Groningen.
Stay tuned for the big reveal next week!

That is gorgeous and it will be fabulous once finished! Beautiful yarn, you’ve chosen the perfect stitch for it. Have a nice weekend, Sigrid
