Hygge - Scheepjes CAL 2017
Isn't this beautiful?
This is a new CAL by Scheepjes of Holland. How can anyone resist this stunning design?
I could not, anyway 😉.
The whole CAL lasts 14 weeks, instructions being published each week on their website and Facebook.
Judging by their FB page, the interest is huge.
I came across it by chance on Sunday, at the end of the first week, thought about for a while ( a very short while) and then started browsing the Internet for UK supplier.
You can get the whole thing as a kit, and it comes in four colour combinations, but the "Rainbow" is the one in the main picture, and the most stunning, in my opinion. Obviously I am not alone, as this colour is mostly sold out.
I found it here in UK on Wool Warehouse website, ordered on Sunday, my parcel arrived today.
The contains all the yarn, and a small bag with bits and bobs,
and the lovely Wool Warehouse people included one of their bags with parcel - to put your work in, or possibly to store your finished shawl in.
The Danish word "hygge" and its definition has been banded around for some time now, I am sure you too know all about it.
Our crafting also makes us feel good, and that's all part of it.
I have returned to crochet only recently, so this shawl is going to be a challenge for me, but that is probably just what I need this year 😀
