As you can easily guess from the pictures it’s a new shawl. The pattern will be free and I will work hard to bring it to life in next couple of weeks. But today I would like to give you an idea of how it looks. Well, what you see is not really a complete stitch pattern. It’s the wrong side actually :) But it also means my new shawl is reversible.
I have been playing with River Washed yarn by Scheepjes (reviewed HERE). It’s a cotton blend in very nice and vibrant colors (named after famous world’s rivers). And every shade contains two colors: one is in cotton cord and another is added with a fluff. Together these shades bring an incredible effect. It’s not easy to catch it with the camera, but I gave it a try.
I made two shawls in different color palettes and tried to present almost all shades of River Washed yarn. I also added a regular Stone Washed yarn (in the same composition and quality) to blue and pink sample. Yes, these two yarns can be combined together! And this gives even more opportunities for color combinations!
Both River Washed and Stone Washed yarns are available in local Scheepjes stores, Caro's Atelier* (NL) and also via international retailers such as Wool Warehouse* and Black Sheep Wools* (both in UK but with worldwide shipping), Knotty House* (Canada).
And here is something else I would like to show you. I have been dreaming about craft labels for a very long time. But because I don't have a logo (yet) I didn't know how to design them. And then I came across a lovely Etsy shop from Bulgaria which sells different types of custom labels. I contacted them and they sent me a sketch in no time. Just what I needed!!! :) Mine are wooden (not leather as I wanted them to be animal friendly). If you are looking for something similar for yourself HERE is a link to Leather Goods Company Etsy shop.
Watch my blog next week for a shawl’s reveal.
UPDATE: the shawl has been revealed already. Check pictures HERE.
