Hi everyone! :)
This may be a bit last minute, but if you’re pressed for a great (Christmas) gift for the crafty people in your life, I’ve got a great recommendation: the Scheepjes yarn kit for KiKa! :)
I got the Autumn Walk colour way for this kit. Let’s see what’s on the inside…
This kit comes in 15 yummy colour variations, and contains 5 balls of yarn: 2 of Invicta Colour and 3 of Invicta Extra. The kit also comes with 2 patterns for an amazing shawl; there is a knit version and a crochet version! And for the finishing touch, there’s a pompom template in there as well, to allow you to make the mother of all pompoms for your new triangle shawl! ;)
But the really cool thing about this kit is the charity it supports: KiKa, a foundation that funds research to fight cancer in children. A percentage of each sale goes directly to this wonderful cause!
I’m really, REALLY happy with the colour way I chose, but be sure to check out the Scheepjes site for all the other amazing combinations they have! I’m not going to spoil anything here, but there are a couple of WONDERFUL colour combo’s, with names like Enchanted Forest and Purple Rain – seriously, check it out ;)
And now comes the choice; do I knit this, or do I crochet this? My knitting speed has improved significantly since I first started a few years ago, but since this shawl is worked from the bottom up, the rows are going to keep getting longer, and longer, and longer… (and remember this shawl I made? Took me 2 years to complete! :P) Maybe I should just stick to what I know best.
Merry Christmas everyone; I wish you wonderful days spent with your loved ones!
