Peppermint Pageant MAL Announcement

I’m super excited to be joining forces again with lovely and talented yarn dyer Kitey, aka The Yarn Whisperer, for our fifth collaboration, to bring you a brand new winter make-along.

Imagine, it’s the betwixmas period, you’re not quite sure what day it might be but you feel a sense of calm in the air after the wonderful madness of Christmas. Now it’s time to schedule a few moments just for YOU! It’s a time to indulge in those Christmas treats, to not get dressed if you don’t want to, to find the best trashy TV you can or put on your favourite movie – and of course settle in with a brand new crochet project with some lovely handyed yarn.

Join us in creating magical memories as we saunter into the Peppermint Pageant MAL. Together we will fashion a lovely seasonal heirloom ready to gift or to bring out each year and enjoy in your own home.

If you are not sure what a MAL is, you can read more on the MAL landing page here, but Kitey and I have actually had this planned since for a while (and we may have already planned more projects right into 2024 – we do get a bit over excited when we start talking!)

This time around we are going to be making a stocking, which I’m not going to show you yet, and I’m not going to give away too much about the project, but what I will say is that I so pleased with how it’s turned out and can’t wait to share it with you!

An exclusive pattern and kit have been created for this extra special MAL. Kitey has worked his magic, as usual, to put together an amazingly special colourway and each kit will include:

  • 1x 100g / 166m skein of 100% Superwash Merino Aran
  • 2 x 50g / 83m of 100% Superwash Merino Aran yarn, in TWO exclusive hand-dyed colourways
  • A digital copy of the pattern (which will be sent to you 22nd –  23rd December)
  • And a few extra, exclusive treats, just for good measure!

Pin this project for later:

Pre-ordered kits will be available for £44 + postage, and can be made on The Yarn Whisperer website from 10 am on Tuesday 1st November 2022.

AND if you order your kit in the first 24 hours you can enjoy a 10% Early Bird discount.

Kits will be dyed to order over the coming weeks, with generally a 1 week turn-around from order to shipping. But get in quick to ensure you get yours in plenty of time to crochet along with us!

Dragonfly River MAL | The Reveal & Pattern Release

The 15th of September was the last ‘official’ day of the latest make along that has been hosted by The Yarn Whisperer and myself. From the 31 July until now, over a month later, we have enjoyed a relaxed summer make along project with lovely fellow crocheters. And now I get the opportunity to share my finished Dragonfly River Cowl with you in all it’s glory with you!

As always it’s been an absolute delight to work with Kitey and his gorgeously coloured yarn, I love these collabs we do – it always provides me with an opportunity to work with gorgeous yarn which in turn makes the design process enjoyable too (slightly obsessed by the sparkle yarn this time round)!

If this is the first you’ve heard about the Dragonfly River MAL you can read more about it here but in a nutshell it’s the result of a wonderful collaboration between myself and Kitey, aka The Yarn Whisperer, of a unique crocheted cowl designed with a special hand dyed yarn in mind.

It’s made us both incredibly happy to see the photos of folks sharing their progress with us on social media and I hope you will continue to do so as you finish your cowls if you haven’t had chance to make it yet.

I’m really pleased with how the design for this cowl turned out and working with the yarn was such a delight! I’m a big fan of slub yarn, because I love the texture it automatically creates, and the lovely dragonfly colourway, with that sparkle, was just wonderful! I think I kept being slightly annoying to my husband as I kept asking him to look at it twinkling in various situations, and it really was a delight to see those beautiful tonal green and blue colours coming through in the stitches.

Although the official end date of the MAL has come to an end DO NOT feel any panic or worry that you didn’t keep up, haven’t got it done, didn’t start it or whatever! The deadline was there just for those people that like a deadline, for everyone else, enjoy it when you have the time to use the yarn and / or make the cowl – there is no rush to this crochet make along! And sometime in the future you will have a beautiful finished object that you can gift for someone special or to enjoy wearing yourself.

Now that the MAL is over, I have listed the pattern in my usual pattern stores for you to make your own version of the The Dragonfly River Cowl.

Use two of your favourite skeins of handdyed yarn with a 3.5mm (US size E/4) hook – I can’t wait to see what colourways you use for your own unique projects. Or if you’d like to pick up this specific kit colourway, although the original version was sold out, it will be available again from Kitey from November as a dye to order.

The pattern has a written version, a chart and comes with a bonus pattern to make your own Dragonfly brooch – Kitey and I always like to add a little extra something for those scraps of leftover yarn! The pattern comes with all explanation of stitches used and is available in either UK or US terminology.

We do hope that you’ve enjoyed this fun make-along, I know Kitey and I have thoroughly enjoyed it – in fact we’ve already made our plans for our Christmas-time make-along! All I’m going to say is that I’m already excited for it, it’s something completely different and it’s going to be a blast!

Make sure you are signed up to the blog (or my newsletter) and The Yarn Whisperer newsletter to make sure you are the first to know when the new collaboration project is revealed!

Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx

The Dragonfly River Make-Along is Here!

Happy MAL day folks!

It’s the 31 July which means it’s the official start of the Dragonfly River Make Along in collaboration with the lovely Kitey (aka the Yarn Whisperer). We are super excited to share this summer’s project with you!

All the folks that ordered the exclusive Dragonfly River MAL kit should have already received the gorgeous Yarn Whisperer yarn (plus fab extras), and the pattern went out to everyone a few days ago (from Kitey – so maybe check your junk mail if the pattern doesn’t seem to have appeared). So we should be all ready to begin!

The exclusive colourway that Kitey has come up with this summer was inspired by sparkling rivers and the iridescent beauty of dragonflies. It contains fabulously rich greens and teals combined with beautiful tonal soft blue shades – plus that little bit of stelina sparkle (I LOVE IT). This has been married up with a hank of natural slub yarn because that’s beautiful in it’s own right – especially along side the hand dyed version as the colours really pop! And the slub yarn has the most fantastic texture – it’s my new yarn crush!

And in amongst the kit there is THE MOST FABULOUS stitch marker from Mrs G! It’s the cutest teeny tiny (river) stones alongside a beautiful silver dragonfly! I know I say it every time, but these are my new favourites – and they are just the perfect compliment to the yarn and the design for our cowl.

For the full information about this particular MAL you can find all the details here (or find via the top menu of this blog under the tab ‘CALS AND MALS’). But generally the idea is that the MAL is a relaxed event designed to be a lovely summer project – this time round we are making a cowl.

The Make Along will run from today (Sunday 31 July 2022) until Thursday 15 September 2022 giving everyone plenty of time, during busy summer holiday season, for you to make the pattern. You can of course start the pattern at anytime you wish, this deadline is just there for those that like to have one.

There will be support for the pattern as usual in my Facebook group; the KCACO-UK Crochet Community Group and in Kitey’s Virtual Stitch-n-B*tch zoom sessions – see full details on Kitey’s Insta page

SHARING WITH THE #DRAGONFLYRIVERMAL MAKEALONG COMMUNITY

We hope you’ll share your photos with us on social media (facebooktwitter or instagram) or as a project on Ravelry – we’d love to see what you make! We will be sharing our progress with the hashtags #dragonflyrivermal #kcacouk #yarnwhisperer. If you’re blogging, feel free to leave links to your post(s) in the comments here.

You also may wish to make sure you are signed up to blog (below) and / or my mailing list to get a reminder when new blog posts, discounts or new pattern releases are available – I’ll just say that Kitey and I have already planned projects for well into 2023!

We do hope that you enjoy this fun make-along; Kitey and I can’t wait to see your wonderful new cowls come to life!

Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx

Dragonfly River MAL Announcement

Banner image featuring the details for the Dragonfly River summer crochet makealong, running from 31 July until 15 September 2022.

I’m super excited to be joining forces again this winter with talented yarn dyer Kitey, aka The Yarn Whisperer, to bring you a brand new seasonal make-along.

Imagine, you are on a day out; it’s a fine sunny day and you have taken a delicious picnic, and of course a brand new crochet project, to enjoy in the relative peace and quiet of the countryside.

It’s nice and warm and you are feeling lovely and relaxed! The river is flowing gracefully by your side, there’s a hint of a refreshing breeze, birds are singing in the trees and there are blue skies and fluffy clouds above you. It’s then that you hear the zip of a dragonfly flying past, and your eyes follow the iridescent glimmer of its body, as it goes on a hunt on the sparkling rippling river.

Join us on its journey as we take part in the Dragonfly River Make Along!

If you are not sure what a MAL is, you can read more on the MAL landing page here, but Kitey and I have actually had this planned since last years Christmas collab (and we may have already planned more projects into 2024 – we do get a bit over excited when we start talking!)

This time around we are going to be making a cowl, which I’m not going to show you yet, and I’m not going to giveaway too much about the project, but what I will say is that I really, really love everything about it and can’t wait to share it with you!

The Mellow Mallow Make-Along is Here!

Happy Boxing Day, also known as Mellow Mallow Make-Along Day!

Kitey (aka the Yarn Whisperer) and I have been impatiently waiting for this day to get here so we could share with you the design we’ve matched to this years exclusive yarn!

All the folks signed up to do the Mellow Mallow MAL should have already received the stunning Yarn Whisperer yarn, if you ordered a kit, and the pattern went out to everyone on 23rd December (from Kitey – so maybe check your junk mail if the pattern doesn’t seem to have appeared). So we should be all ready to begin!

The exclusive colourway that Kitey has come up with this year was inspired by mulled wine and marshmallows. It contains fabulously rich maroons, burgundy and plum hues combined with beautiful mid to light pink shades. This has been married up with a hank of natural yarn because that’s beautiful in it’s own right – especially along side the hand dyed version as the colours really pop!

And in amongst the kit there was THE MOST FABULOUS stitch marker from Mrs G! It’s a cutest teeny tiny snowflake mug with marshmallows on top! Then there are some little frosted pink and white beads to match in with the colours of the MAL. Honestly I always say that her latest stitch marker is my favourite, and then she goes and trumps it every time!

For the full information about this particular MAL you can find all the details here (or find via the top menu of this blog under the tab ‘CALS AND MALS’). But generally the idea is that the MAL is a cosy event designed to be a a lovely winter treat – this time round we are making a triangular scarf.

The Make Along will run from today (Sunday 26 December 2021) until Wednesday 26 January 2022 for a a nice relaxed project with plenty of time for you to make the pattern. You can of course start the pattern at anytime you wish, this deadline is just there for those that like to have one.

The Whispers of the Sea Make-Along is Here!

Happy 5 July, also known as Whispers of the Sea Make-Along Day! Kitey (aka the Yarn Whisperer) and I have been really impatient for it to get here so we could share with you the design we’ve matched to the yarn!

If you were one of our early bird shoppers then you should have already received your yarn – and the pattern went out to everyone yesterday (from Kitey) so we could be ready for the start today (so maybe check your junk mail if the pattern doesn’t seem to have appeared).

RECAP AND CLARIFICATIONS

This make along is designed as a slow, and relaxing summer project – putting those extra daylight hours to good use. We have put together a long make along period because we know that the summer can be a busy time for everyone and we didn’t want anyone to feel rushed with their project.

There is no specific schedule to the make along, you have over 2 months in theory, until the official end of our MAL on 10 September – but you can share your finished makes before or after this date as you complete your wrap.

Kitey has worked his magic to put together TWO amazing colourways for this MAL; there’s the gorgeous Laminariales (lam-in-are-i-arlez), which is inspired by kelp forests, and is just a gorgeous mixture of greens, teals and a hint of blue, and there is Zoantharia (Zo-anth-air-ria), inspired by soft corals, which is a beautiful mixture of pinks and orange tones.

Are you #teamlaminariales or #teamzoantharia? They are soooo pretty in real life, and the slub yarn in just simply gorgeous to work with. However if slub yarn is totally new to you you may find my recent post Tips for Crocheting with Slub Yarn of use.

If this is the first time you are hearing about the MAL there are still a handful of kits available on The Yarn Whisperer website at the cost of £44 + postage. Each kit will include 2 skeins of hand-dyed slub yarn, which you can choose in either of the colourways shown above, beautiful sea glass beads, a digital copy of the pattern and there will also be a few treats for good measure, including some fabulous Mrs G Stitch stitch markers.

For the full information about this particular MAL you can find all the details here (or find via the top menu of this blog under the tab ‘CALS AND MALS’).

SUPPORT AND HOLIDAY SNAPS

There will be support for the pattern as usual in my Facebook group, and you could also pop in the Virtual Stitch-n-B*tch zoom sessions hosted by Kitey every Tuesday and Sunday at 2pm or Friday at 5.20pm (please see meeting codes on The Yarn Whisperer feed on Instagram). 

As this is a summer make-along we are really hoping you will share your photos with us of either your staycation or vacation view! We are hoping to put together a summer photo book of all your wonderful photos, that we will share in September at the end of the MAL.

Simply send or tag us in your perfect summery pictures – it could be your make in progress in a summery setting, or you working on it with a summer cocktail, or the finished make! All photos will be credited and shared online here on the blog and on the Yarn Whisperer website. Please just let us know how you’d like to be credited (e.g. first or Instagram name!)

SHARING WITH THE WOTSMAL MAKEALONG COMMUNITY

We will be sharing our progress with the hashtags #wotsmal #kcacouk #yarnwhisperer and you can add either #teamlaminariales or #teamzoantharia for the specific colourways! If you’re blogging, feel free to leave links to your post(s) in the comments here.

We do hope that you enjoy this fun make-along; Kitey and I can’t wait to see your wonderful new wraps come to life!

Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx

Whispers of the Sea Summer Make-Along

I’m super excited to say that this summer I’m joining forces again with the FABULOUSLY talented yarn dyer Kitey, aka the Yarn Whisperer to bring you a brand new summer make along (MAL), called ‘Whispers of the Sea’,

After our hugely successful winter make-along collab, for the crocheted Solstice Garden Wrap, Kitey and I got over-excited and immediately started planning our next make along project, this time for the summer.

It’s a project I’m rather delighted by; I love how my design has come together in partnership with the AMAZING colourways that Kitey has put together!

But what’s a make-along or MAL I hear some of you ask? Well maybe you are familiar with the term CAL for a crochet-along (or a KAL in knitting) it’s sort of similar but a MAL has a few differences.

A make-along is when a specific pattern is released with all of the details required to make the design; along with a specific start date for everyone to begin their project together. Then, unlike a crochet-along where you would have bits of the pattern supplied to you over a number of weeks, you have the pattern in full with and end date to make it by. It’s a relaxed way to make a project as you can work at your own pace, but there is a deadline to hold you accountable should you need one.

For the summer make-along I’ve put together a design that would be the perfect holiday project, something that you can do at your own pace, that is nice and relaxing but engaging enough to be enjoyable as you create a lovely summer wrap.

I’m not going to show you the wrap design yet, but I will say, for this design, Kitey and I have been digging into the sea for our inspiration! There are shells, kelp, coral, waves and my favourite thing ever, sea glass, that have influenced this design – and I love how it’s turned out!

Kitey has worked his magic to put together TWO amazing colourways for this MAL; there’s the gorgeous Laminariales (lam-in-are-i-arlez), which is inspired by kelp forests, and is just a gorgeous mixture of greens, teals and a hint of blue, and there is Zoantharia (Zo-anth-air-ria), inspired by soft corals, which is a beautiful mixture of pinks and orange tones.

Will you be #teamlaminariales or #teamzoantharia? They are soooo pretty in real life – Kitey’s made it almost too hard to choose!

Pre-order’s for MAL kits can be made on The Yarn Whisperer website from 10 May 10am (NOW!) at the cost of £44 + postage. Each kit will include 2 skeins of hand-dyed slub yarn (which is my new favourite!), beautiful sea glass beads, a digital copy of the pattern (which will be sent to you the day before the MAL begins) and there will also be a few treats for good measure, including some fabulous Mrs G Stitch stitch markers.

AND if you order your kit in the first 24 hours you can enjoy a 10% Early Bird discount.

Kits will be dyed to order over the coming weeks, with generally a 1 week turn-around from order to shipping. But we’d advise you to get in quick to ensure you get your kit in plenty of time to crochet along with us!

Last International orders will be shipped by 5 June if ordered by 22 May 2021. UK orders will continue to be shipped after this date, but ordering early ensure yours arrives in plenty of time to join us on 5 July 2021.

The MAL will start on 5 July and will run until 10 September when everyone can have a ta-dah moment and show off their wraps. We have put together a long make along period because we know that the summer can be a busy time for everyone and we didn’t want anyone to feel rushed to make their wrap.

This project is all about that relaxed sunny day work in progress that you can take with you on holiday, to work on by the pool or on the beach, or in the garden, that you can pick up and put down, and work on at your own pace in your own time!

I’ve put together all the details for this particular MAL on a landing page which you can find to save the details here, or find via the top menu of this blog under the tab ‘CALS AND MALS’.

There will be support for the pattern as usual in my Facebook group, and also you can pop in and join in with the Virtual Stitch-n-B*tch sessions hosted by Kitey. Those are a bit like going to a virtual knit and natter group, and everyone there is really lovely and helpful.

We do hope that you will join both Kitey and myself for this fun make-along – we can’t wait to see your wonderful new wraps come to life!

Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
