Scheepjes Whirl

Eeeep! Scheepjes adds another sugary-sweet yarn to their collections. I was just swatching with BonBon and Sugar Rush* the other day, and then I heard about the yummy Whirl upcoming release – well you know this girl has a sweet tooth! Check out this absolutely delicious sneak peek photo from Scheepjes: And drooooool over these ice cream-y names! Here are the scrumptious details for these sweet cakes: Made from a blend of 60% cotton/40% acrylic to produce projects that are lightweight and breathable.  Unlike other gradient yarns, Whirl has a generous twist to enable speed while working the yarn and to help prevent splitting. Whirl has a unique twisted plied section, which gives it a characteristic ‘flavour’ all of its own!  This Extra Large yarn cake holds an enormous 1000 meters of softly colour changing yarn, more than enough for a large shawl or wrap.  Each colour change is carefully tied in an optimum way to ensure the knot can be discretely hidden within your stitches.  Recommended hook / needle size: 3.5-4mm Whirl is available in all …

Named for its resemblance to moon boots and for those outlandish bobbles, Moon Landing is a unique hexagon blanket that you can make using three different yarn types of a similar weight. Of course the same yarn can also be used throughout. This piece is perfect for any space from a newborn’s crib to a college dorm room. With clever color choice, anyone will enjoy this modern and striking blanket design. Find the Pattern PDF on RAVELRY! 🙂 Make it! Read more about the three yarns I used for this project and where to order them in the happy mail Yarn post. Huge thank you to everyone for being so enthusiastic about this pattern and pushing me to finally finish it. All it took was carving about 10 hours out of my busy day to complete it and share with you lovely lot. Thank you and I hope you enjoy making it! Rachele C.

*New* Scheepjes  Accessories!

Hi, y’all! I recently opened some super happy mail and felt I just had to share! Scheepjes Yarns has unveiled a new line of crafty accessories, and I had the wonderful opportunity to un-box a gifty package of them.  As I started tearing through the festive holiday wrapping paper (thank you, Scheepjes!!), I stopped myself and decided to make my very first ever video. This is huge! I’ve gotten numerous requests along the way to make videos, and always felt out of touch with technology and completely not savvy.. But I gave it my best shot and it can only get better from here (lol) ❤️ I’ve had my Patreon.com account set up and ready for launch for about two months now, just waiting for the right time to hit that Launch button. Well, what’s a better way to open my Patreon site than with my first video?  Head over and check out the reveal of all the Scheepjes goodies complete with links on how to use some of the accessories that you see in …
