No-Waste 2018: Using up my Scheepjes Merino Soft

I’ve been on a huge kick of using all my remnants and scraps and leftovers to create. Though you don’t always get those predictable, pretty, go-to palettes, you do allow yourself to free up space and freshen your yarn stash. So for this project, the second pattern in my free pattern series “Relaxghans”, I’ll be using a little stash of Scheepjes | Merino Soft left over from a project I made for my upcoming book, releasing in May. (Yay!) Merino Soft is super enjoyable to work with as it is just buttery and always looks saturated. It won’t fade, and is very durable. Plus, check out this yummy color range!
