Making Plans; a New Crochet Design

 

After the incredible month I’ve just had, now it’s time to slow down a bit and create something that’s meditative.

So I’ve ordered myself one of the glorious ombre whirls from Scheepjes, and have a great project on the go!

This colourway is called Coral Catastrophe, and although my crochet palette is usually all pinks and blues, I actually have a lot of coral clothes and accessories – it’s my favourite colour to wear!

I’m going to make a single skein shawl, one that will be big enough to really wrap yourself up in.

While I’m on the topic of whirls, have you seen the Whirligigs?Β  OMG. I’m in love and can’t wait to get my hands on one!

Here’s the latest design, launched this week:

It’s the Book Lover’s Wrap, a knit pattern by Margje Enting.Β  Check it out on RavelryΒ While you’re there, take a look at Margje’s other beautiful designs.

Have you seen all the Whirligig colours*?Β  They’re all to die for.

The Whirligigs are a DK weight yarn, 80% virgin wool and 20% alpaca.Β  So the softness factor will be off the charts.Β  I can’t decide which colour I want most, I think it will have to be Sapphire to Teal, or Teal to Yellow.Β  Sigh.

But in the meantime, I’ll have to satisfy myself with my own stunning ombre whirl – as if that could ever be a chore!Β  I can’t wait to show you progress next week.

If you’d like to test the pattern, do send me a message.Β  I have an amazing group of people I can call on, but I’d like to reduce the pressure on them a bit and work with some more people whom I’ll also love!

Buying options:

Scheepjes as always has the full list of whirly retailers on their website, plus you can check out some of the retailers I like to recommend:

Wool Warehouse* ships all over the world, and so does Deramores*.

Caro’s Atelier* is my local yarn store here in Almere.

Black Sheep Wools* is the largest bricks and mortar yarn store in the UK, and Knotty House* has North America covered.

In South Africa you can’t go past Be Inspired, and in Australia head to Yarnish.

You can also check out my designer store at Deramores.com – it’s where I stock some of my designs, and this one will be added when it’s finished too!
