My Designer Shop at Deramores.com

Exciting news: Just in time for Christmas, I’ve started an exciting collaboration with Deramores.com, where you will be able to purchase pattern and yarn kits that I’ve put together, just for you!

To start with, you’ll be able to get your hands on kits for my Whispering Wind Chimes from YARN 5, Woman, my Woodland Friends Bunny along with Our Tribe My Tribe, Fade Out, Flat Out Fabulous, and coming soon will be the RainBOOM! Wrap.

So how does it work?  you can click through to the store, and when you choose to buy, you will receive the yarn sent to you, and the pattern will be sent to you as well.

It’s also possible to just buy the digital pattern if you like, so you can use it a bit like Ravelry!

Each kit comes with the original colourways that I created them with, and I intend to get more colourways added over time.  Do you have any in particular that you would love to see?  Let me know and I’ll see what I can do!

In the meantime, I do hope you will enjoy, happy shopping!

Yarn Day: Secret Garden

This week Scheepjes launched another brand new yarn.  Seriously, I can’t keep up with them all, there are so many!  This one is the silk blend Secret Garden.

Among the Blogger Tribe, this one has been much anticipated.  We were lucky enough to be given a sneak peek and there was lots of oohing and aahing and rubbing yarn on our faces.

So I’m excited to give you a little show and tell!

I have these three colours – Rambling Blooms, Herb Garden and Falling Blossom for a top secret project that I’m working on, but I also wanted to show you how it crochets.  I whipped up this granny:

It shows off the colours in Rambling Blooms beautifully, don’t you think?

About the yarn; it’s a silk (20%), cotton (20%) and polyester (60%) blend, and the recommended hook/needles sizes is 4mm.  I’ve gone up to a 5mm though, as I think that suits my style much better.  The fabric of my granny is quite dense, so it would be forgiving using a 6mm even.  It’s available in 10 shades, I’m looking forward to trying them all.

I see that this yarn is going to be a knitter’s dream.  I’m already thinking of the beautiful shawls and tops I’m going to be seeing in the very near future!

The yarn goes on sale today, so do keep an eye on your favourite stockists in the Benelux, and Wool Warehouse and Deramores will also have you covered no matter where you live in the world.  If you can’t find it straight away, pop back again for another look.

My Favourite Day: Yarn Day!

As you will have seen last week I shared the pattern for my Flopsy Bunny using the Scheepjes Catona, and I enjoyed working with it so much I was struck with more ideas for cool designs, so I immediately jumped on the order machine (laptop) to pick out some colours.  I decided to go for two ranges – reds and greens.

Now, I’d best get cracking.
