The new CAL is about to start (June 10th, whoohoo!), and I am SO excited!
If you don’t speak Dutch, that word, ‘Scheepjes’, must look so weird! It has ‘sheep’ in it, sort of, so I’ve heard some UK peeps pronounce it as ‘Sheep-ies’, which of course, to me is hilarious :D
The word ‘Scheepjes’ means little boats or ships in Dutch. A ‘schip’ is a ship, and ‘scheepjes’ are little ships. The brand is called that way because in the olden days, the yarn would be brought to the stores in… little boats! :)
So, what *is* the proper way to pronounce Scheepjes? Well, I made a teeny tiny video for you, explaining how to! :)
Now, this is really cool; there was an adorable lady in one of the groups that made a video response! She filmed herself pronouncing Scheepjes :)
She did it perfectly! :D
So I’m wondering: do any of you have trouble pronouncing Scheepjes? And would you be willing to video yourself saying it? :) I’d love to hear and see you! It would be SO cool to create a follow-up post to this one with videos of people pronouncing Scheepjes all around the world… :)
