Hey there. It’s been a while. Much longer that I had hoped. A lot has happened, but that’s a story for another day.
While I was gone, Scheepjes released a new edition of their bi-annual book-a-zine YARN. This time the theme celebrates Woman.
This series touches on themes such as The Good Wife, Rebel Daughter, Soul Sister, and Earth Mother. You’ll also find a feature of all the bloggers who collaborate with Scheepjes, and will learn about our inspiration and role models.
I have one design in this edition, the Whispering Wind Chimes. It is a series of five lanterns, using Scheepjes Sunkissed. You’ll also need 2 20cm dream catcher rings per lantern and 10 round bells.
You can hang the lanterns in the garden as decoration, or thread them onto fairy lights, or hang a battery operated candle or LED lamp inside.
It’s a very easy pattern, great for someone who is just starting out and wants to learn how to make basic stitches look interesting as it looks more difficult than it is. The pattern is also easily adapted to become larger or smaller (feel free to reach out to me if you’d like help with this).
Along with my Whispering Wind Chimes, you can see Susan Carlson’s design, using my MissNeriss Our Tribe colourway in her Little Sister shawl. The colours are just perfect, I never tire of seeing projects in my colourway.
You can get your hands on the latest copy of YARN, Woman at almost all of the fab Scheepjes retailers.
The book is also available at Wool Warehouse* and Deramores* for global shipping, and Caro’s Atelier* in NL
Both Deramores* and Caro’s Atelier* have put together packs with everything you’ll need. Be quick though, they’re selling out!
