Do you remember when it was summer and you were sitting in the sun thinking there is nothing better than warm sunshine on your skin? This is the memory I have of my first time working with Scheepjes Stone Washed and Stone Washed XL yarn.
I have read so much about this yarn, there are so many people raving about it all the time, that I jumped on the opportunity to use it when Dedri Uys asked me to make a video tutorial of her Tunisian Crochet Ten Stitch afgan, a stash busting project if ever there was one!
But I did not want to bust my stash, I wanted a good excuse to add to it. The ever so kind people at Scheepjes send me a whole box of Stone Washed XL (also available from Deramores (INT & UK), Paradise Fibers (US & CA). I just never tire of the excitement I feel when opening a box of yarn.
Both Stone Washed and Stone Washed XL yarns are incredibly soft and really fun to work with. From now on the Stone Washed XL is in my top 10 best yarns ever. It is soft and yet rugged at the same time. Perfect for the not-so-girly-girl projects, you know cool projects for cool people 🙂
I have been working on two versions of the Tunisian Crochet Ten Stitch afgan design, one using the ‘regular’ Stone Washed yarn, and one using the XL yarn. Here I was working on my ‘regular’ version on one of those warm summer days….
Be sure to come back for the video showing how to make this fun project.
