I’ve been a busy little bee over the last couple of weeks since I last posted. I’ve made great progress on my latest Scheepjes project, made with Softfun Aquarel. It’s going to be a blanket, and so far it’s looking amazing!
That is a shot I took before I went on holiday two weeks ago, and the blanket has since travelled around Scandinavia and increased dramatically in size!
It’s actually grown even more since I took these pics!
The chevron is so fun to do, it’s lovely and soothing creating the zig zags and feeling the yarn come to life in all it’s squishy glory.
It won’t be finished in the next week, but I’ll be sure to post more progress shots as I go – make sure you check out my Instagram feed to keep updated. As soon as I’m finished I’ll let you know exactly how much of each colour you’ll need to make this (so far it’s looking like about 6 balls of each colour except the purple, which will likely be 8).
You can get hold of the Scheepjes Aquarel at Wool Warehouse (they ship everywhere)* and Scheepjes retailers throughout the Benelux. I can recommend my local yarn store Caro’s Atelier – look local first!

Today I’m kicking off a new Scheepjes crochet project, and I can’t wait to share it!
It’s another Scheepjes Softfun Aquarel* project, do you recognise the colours?
That’s right – they’re the same as the colours I used for my Textured Chevron Cushion earlier this year.
That can only mean one thing: companion project!
I’m still just as in love with the colours of this yarn as I was when it was first released. I also just love working with the yarn. It’s lovely and soft and has amazing stitch definition. Plus it’s squishy and bouncy; perfect for what I’m making.
So, what am I making? Well, I’ll leave you to speculate for a while….
Stay tuned for next week when I start posting teaser pics. I’m sure it won’t take you long to guess what it will be.
You can pick up the gorgeous Scheepjes Aquarel at Wool Warehouse (they ship everywhere)* and Scheepjes retailers throughout the Benelux. In fact, my local yarn store Caro’s Atelier stocks Aquarel, and I love to support a great local business!

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).
