Good evening everyone, and a very happy Friday to you indeed.
I am very happy to be announcing my very first collaboration with Teri of The Ungrateful Wench on this blog post. :0)
As soon as I saw her truly beautiful hand dyed yarn, I knew what I had to create with it. And I do mean had to. Sometimes, every once in a while, there comes along a special kind of yarn that simply speaks to you. It whispers in your ear, and it tells you what it wants to become.
This was one of those times. Smiles.
And so, using Blue Galaxy and the contrasting Teal – both in Merino/Nylon 4 ply – I created this stunning It’s Written In The Stars shawl.
The yarn is sublime. It is so soft it was like working with velvet. If you take a close look at my tension swatch you will see just how velvety soft it felt.
The shawl pattern itself, is very quick to make up, and it can be done in around a week. It took me slightly longer due to ill health, but some of my testers completed it in that time.
It is a fairly easy shawl to create, and the most complex stitches are Front Post, Back Post and Double Treble (UK) / Triple (US.)
I do truly love this shawl so much, and I’m already working on another one. This time I’m trying it out in a Scheepjes Whirl (I’m using Dandelion Munchies) and it is looking superb too!
More pictures of this delightful shawl are going to be following across the week, both from my testers and from me using the whirl.
If you would like to purchase this gorgeous shawl pattern for yourself, you can find it in all the usual places (listed below for your convenience.)
Here are some pictures from me using the Scheepjes Dandelion Munchies Whirl. :0)

I have also added a short tutorial on working a Front Post Treble stitch into a row of Double Crochet stitches. You can find it on my tutorials page by clicking here.

Hugs & Happy Crafting Everyone!
I hope that you each have an amazing weekend filled with your favourite things. :0)
