Knit and Knatter

Scheepjes Stonewashed, mandala madness in waiting

I literally HUGGED this parcel when it arrived, before opening the plastic wrapper, before seeing what was inside, I hugged it and did and little dance and a skip!  I savoured imagining what it would look like, what it would feel like – I squealed with delight – my postman knows me – he smiles knowingly.

Of course I do not need more yarn, I do not need to start yet another new project, I do not need a ‘cake’, I have no idea what I will make with it, just had to get one!

…….  on the other hand the impulse to try out Mandala Madness in a different yarn and colour-way is too overwhelming to resist.

You understand, don’t you!

I’m going for pastels this time in 4ply Scheepjes Stonewashed a cotton and acrylic mix.

Decision time: this palette?colour palette for Mandala Madness

or this one without the stronger pink and turquoise?

I think it might be a bedcover for one of the twins – girls aged 4. The colours go with their bedroom.

This will be another Mandala Madness with Spiro Star at the centre, both patterns by Helen Shrimpton, with video Tutorials by Esther

I’m so excited, I just want to get going on it – but – the sun is shining and there’s gardening to be done – high class dilemnas!
