New Knitting Make-a-Long

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!

Just in time for Valentine’s Day and to keep us snuggly in these not yet spring months, Carmen Jorissen of New Leaf Designs has designed the Cosy Moments Shawl! The design is absolutely beautiful and uses my very favourite yarn – Scheepjes Whirl!

Cotton Candy Man

If you’ve used Scheepjes Whirl before, you know it has a beautiful drape and is absolutely perfect for shawls (as well as light-weight blankets, garments, scarves, etc.). I think I’m going to use an Ombre shade – either in Pink to Wink or Indigo Plane … but I’m also tempted to try Cotton Candy Man or Dandelion Munchies … but since it’s Valentine’s I may end up using something in pinks and reds …

Follow our Instagram account @thestitchery.ca to find out what I have decided on (hopefully, I will be able to decide!).

Although I crochet as well, knitting was my first love and we don’t get very many knitting projects for Scheepjes MALs so I’m super excited for this MAL to start on February 14th. This is a four part MAL and completely free thanks to Scheepjes. You can support the designer (and not have to wait for the next three pattern installments) by purchasing a full PDF of the pattern on Ravelry. Note, you do still need to wait to February 14th for the pattern to drop into your Ravelry library.

So grab a whirl, your needles and a cosy place to knit and enjoy the MAL with me from February 14th to March 6th.

As a newsletter subscriber, you also get a coupon code of LOVE15 which gets you 15% off your purchases (excluding gift cards, Rozeta kits and shipping) through to midnight February 16, 2020 (MST).

Happy Valentine’s Day and more importantly Happy Knitting!
