Summertime inspiration

Sommerwald tee crochet kit

Sommerwald by Annelies Baes is a crochet pattern for a beautiful feminine summer tee in 8 sizes : from XS up to 4XL.

Depending on the size, you need only 4 - 8 skeins of our Pascuali Nepal - a sustainable blend of organic cotton, linen and nettle.

Yarn, pattern and all-in-one crochet kits are available in our webshop.

We are already looking forward to exhibiting at the next Breidagen yarn festival in Zwolle on October 11 & 12!

Did you know there are also plenty of workshops on a variety of crafty subjects? For example Susanne Visch (left on the pic) is teaching how to fix mistakes in knitting. And Alina Popovici (right on the pic) is hosting a masterclass "Knit your Palette - Balance, harmony and contrast for colourwork knitting".

Tickets are available on the Breidagen website!

More Autumnal inspiration - Opulence knitting kit

Opulence is a unique piece that combines beauty, comfort and sustainability. The best of three worlds 😄

A contemporary, comfortable silhouette inspired by old motifs from different sources. Elements from the traditional Romanian blouse, Guernsey knit and purls and fisherman sweater cables honor together a high quality yarn and a pair of skillful hands.

Definitely not a 13-to-the-dozen knit!
Worked in Garthenor undyed, organic Number 3, you can easily mix & match your own natural colour palettte.

How we spend our Summer

Ain't I the cheese! 😆  I am absolutely chuffed with my new Rheinfall Tee, which I finished a couple of weeks ago.

You can find the pattern by Butzeria here. I used the original yarn, beautifully hand dyed hemp "Canapa" by Colori Naturali - highly recommended, you can find it here in her Etsy shop.

But now I am feeling a little under the weather, so I am indulging in more selfish knitting and homemade goodies.
And making another Rheinfall, in our own organic Garthenor Cairngorm Lambswool.
I also started on my own Sommerwald Tee... but it ended up in the naughty corner. Not because there was anything wrong with the pattern, it is not difficult and clearly explained. But somehow I couldn't get into the right mood for this project and I was not satisfied with how it was turning out.

This too is part of the creative process, I guess. Some projects fly off the needles, other projects need ripening. Or something.

Happily I now feel very ripe 😆 and I've picked up the hook and restarted this lovely project.

Another review request

I regularly get the kindest emails from you, telling me how happy you are with your parcel and asking me to pass on your regards to Karen. Which is of course totally awesome and makes us happy dance each and every time!
When Karen started out, I thought I'd give her a bottle of wine for each compliment she received. But in view of her health (and my cashflow) we should not turn this into a tradition... 😆 

However, the webshop is still very empty in the review department.
Perhaps it would be smarter to just send an email with a review request after every order, I don't know. And perhaps it's not necessary, once there are some reviews to start, others may follow.

So will you help me out?
This image is just an example where to find the review links, you can review any product.

Just click "be the first to review this product" and tell us how you liked your purchase.

Whether or not your kid is still running around in those knitted garments. How your needles are to live with. How you liked the shipping process. How accurate the colour as pictured was, when seen in real life.

Your feedback is of great value.
It shows other customers that Yarnz is trustworthy and our webshop is real. It tells us what we're doing right and what we can do better. It builds commitment from our community.
