It’s the latest issue of Scheepjes YARN!
This issue is called Tea Room and is inspired by the origins, colours and aromas of different teas, with four themes including Matcha, Saffron and Ginger, English, and Oolong.
In Matcha you’ll find men’s garments and accessories, including the Nishio sweater by massively talented Susan (Peppergoose) Walsh.
My own design, the Spice Market snood is to be found in the Saffron and Ginger theme, which is filled with rich golds and ochres. My snood is deliberately oversized, so you can wear it around your shoulders or snuggle into the hood when it’s chilly. Made with Namaste, you’ll be warm even on the coldest of days.
In English Tea the designs are all beautiful with their blues and lavender accents. You’ll also find my favourite, and a project I have big plans to make; the Petals and Leaves shawl, by Johanna (Mijo Crochet) Lindahl.
The original uses a single cake of Whirligig in grey to lavender, but I’ll be using teal to ombre and I can’t wait to make it! Keep an eye on my Instagram for progress pics over the coming weeks.
In Ooolong you’ll find soft colours and stylish garments. I love the Jasmine poncho by Margaret (margaretshooksandneedles.blogspot.com).
Now this is just a peek into what’s in the issue. You’ll have to get your own copy to see the rest. Inside you’ll find designs from some of your favourite designers, including Rachele (Cypress Textiles) Carmona, Jellina (Jellina Creations) Verhoef, Maria (50 Shades of 4 Ply) McPherson, and Martin up North.
You can pick it up at your usual retailers for 8.95 euro, 7.95 GBP or 9.95 USD. Take a look at Wool Warehouse*, Deramores*, Caro’s Atelier*, Black Sheep Wools* and Knotty House*. Do also check your local retailer, they’re all listed on the Scheepjes website.
