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