Loopy Mango Big Loop Yarn Now Available In My Shop

06 05 2014

I already told you a few weeks ago that I really love the "Big Knits".

And I still do! A lot! 

The big grey blanket is finished and once I have photographed it, I will show it here on the blog.

Meanwhile I placed an order with Loopy Mango from New York because I had an eye on their Big Loop Merino Yarn for a while now.

It finally arrived here in Germany and the yarn is just gorgeous!!! 

So soft and the colors are beyond my expectation. It was such a joy to unpack the parcel.

I ordered a few more of these gigantic skeins and though I actually would love to keep them all to myself I am trying to be brave here and put some in my DaWanda Shop.

One skein is 40 oz with approximately 120 yards and you knit or crochet this yarn with needle or hook size 25mm.

The skein comes with instructions for a beautiful little blanket called the “Nantucket Throw".

My family is crazy about this throw and everyone wants it to get cozy on the sofa or balcony. It has the perfect size to cover and warm your legs or to wrap it around the shoulders.

If you are interested in different colors from the Big Loop Merino collection  than the ones I picked just let me know and I can order them.

This yarn is hard to obtain in Germany.

Also please let me know if you want to be put on the e-mail list for future "Big Knits Workshops" in my studio. 

Happy Day,

Happy MAY

Happy 1st May to you!

It's a holiday here in Germany and we are looking forward to a relaxed day at home.

We finally put all the lighting up and I will soon show you more pictures of our new home!

Meanwhile please take a look at my recent photos I did for "What do Bloggers collect"

I LOVE baskets. I admire the craft of handwoven baskets, the beautiful texture and color of the natural material and the fact, that they are so helpful for storing or carrying things around. I like to search for them while traveling to add unique ones to my collection. This way they are also beautiful memory keepers.

I own at least thirty baskets big and small - many of them are still lost in unpacked moving boxes - so these pictures just show a small part of my collection.
