You may remember that I purchased an Advent calendar full of yarn this year. Well today I will share with you the first weeks yarns!
Ooooh arent they lovely. They are laid out in the order they came out of the calendar! Such a beautiful rainbow already! I am in love!
As well as the yarn there have been little extras in some of the bags – I have had some yummy choccies and also this lovely Stitch Marker from Koru Clay Studio. I checked out their etsy and got a bit carried away buying Stitch Markers! Go give them a look – but be prepared to part with your cash!
I had originally planned to make this hawl by Kat Goldin. The Lake of Menteith Shawl.
But on opening the first few yarns I wasnt feeling it. I will definately have a go at it but not with this yarn.
I have decided to make this scarf/wrap instead.
This is the Lucinda Shawl by Vicarno Crochet Designs. Its a wonderfully adjustable design as it is done in three sections of repeatable rows. So the original is 3 100g skeins. But you can adhust the straight bits and the lacy bits. So I plan to use 50g of baby grey yarn, then the lace will be a rainbow of advent yarns then the final portion will be 50g of the grey again. I think it will be lovely!
