I'm a Scheepjes Blogger

It's official! I was invited to join with Scheepjes and their amazing group of bloggers. It's a pretty elite gathering of designers, and I'm honored.

I've been ogling Scheepjes yarn for years--mostly from things I watched the talented Wink of A Creative Being make. But my first opportunity to work with their yarn was during my recent Design Wars challenge.


Chromatic Cobbles Blanket Crochet Pattern by Susan Carlson of Felted Button

This Chromatic Cobbles blanket is made with *Merino Soft--a heavenly soft yarn with a wonderfully squishy hand and the most brilliant array of colors. I used "only" 23 of the nearly 50 colors in my design...

If you are interested in making this blanket and want a chance to get your hands on this yarn--Scheepjes and I are offering a kit with the crochet pattern and all the yarn needed to make the blanket in a Giveaway that runs through March 8, 2016. Head to the Scheepjes Facebook page here and follow the instructions on the image to enter to win.
 
But then came this terrific yarn to my door...


Scheepjes Colour Crafter yarn
It's *Colour Crafter! I've completed a design with these heavenly colors and cannot wait to show it to you--but I'll give you a hint (shhh, it's a blanket). I've scheduled the release for the pattern on April 4. 
I really loove *Colour Crafter because it is a substantial 100g skein of premium acrylic that is very affordable. But it's got that one thing that is VERY important to me--the choice of colors! Because of its DK weight, color choice, price range and ease of care--it is perfect for blankets, I think. And I'm the Queen of Blankets, right?! ;)
 
Since I can't have just one thing on my hook, at a time, I'm also just "wrapping" up this design:

As you can see, this is also made with *Colour Crafter (I particularly like these two colors together), but there are 20 or so in the design. I'll share more when it's ready, so stay tuned!
 
Finally, a sneak peek of one more design on my hook...
 
Scheepjes Softfun Aquarel and Softfun yarn--sneak peek of pattern by Susan Carlson of Felted Button
 
This is *Softfun and *Softfun Aquarel. I love the watercolor effects of the Aquarel and the weight and content (DK, 60% cotton, 40% acrylic) of this yarn is a perfect softness and durability. These colors are so soothing to me, as well.
 
I haven't quite worked out the details of the colors I'm going to use yet, as there are so many pretty ones. But it might be a combo of some of these. It's so hard to decide!!
 
I'm off to get hooking--I've got lots of ideas swirling and need the calm of my hook and yarn.
 
Be well. Be at peace. Eat your veggies. Move a little. Love on your loved ones. Crochet some.
