new project with scheepjes soft fun denim!

Hi everyone!

I don’t know if you have seen this new yarn already; the interwebs has exploded over the past couple of weeks because of all the amazing new yarns that have come out by Scheepjes! One of those yarns is a new version of an existing yarn, Soft Fun (which I used to make this blanket), and it has now come out in a Denim variety!

When I saw all the new colours together, I immediately spotted a great palette that would allow me to make something amazing…

How amazing does this look when combined? I’m so stoked about this combination!

The yarn is amazing. It’s slightly variegated, which gives for an amazing depth of colour and it provides a very interesting texture when worked up. It’s a 60% acrylic/40% cotton blend, which is why it is so soft to the touch, yet sturdy enough to make long lasting items with. Let’s take a closer look at the yarn…

See what I mean? It’s variegated, but it’s very subtle and just so… Chique!

I love all of these colours together! :) To me, it inspires feelings of France; think bohemian chique, lace, ribbons, shell buttons, strolling along bistro’s in your favourite pair of strappy sandals…

Which inspired me to collect these items:

Can you feel it? Can you guess what I’m making yet? :) It will be fabulous!

Alright, one more photo… This is what the project looks like so far!
