I’m not sure about you but I am certainly ready to get back to the beautiful weather we had just a few weeks ago. I’ve seen nothing but rain and my poor garden is flooded! Hopefully the weather will start to improve in time for little ones to start enjoying the time outside again wearing the wonderful garments that can be created with this months boxes!
This month I included a beautiful yarn from Scheepjes. I adore Scheepjes yarn and the range they have is truly incredible. This month I chose the Linen Soft which is a DK weight. Many linen yarns can be quite rough but having used this before I know it would be perfect for little ones and it gets softer as you wash it. The yarn itself is a lovely light grey colour which means you could pair it with practically any colour! There is approx 135 metres in each 50g ball of yarn and subscribers had 4 of them to complete the pattern. With regards to washing this yarn you can do so on a 40° cycle but do not put this one in the tumble dryer.
I spotted both the knitting and the crochet patterns a little while ago from Rico and knew instantly that the Linen Soft yarn would be perfect for it. The little trousers are perfect for babies, whether they are not moving about yet or are rolling, crawling, bum shuffling or getting up and cruising and walking about. They really allow a lot of freedom of movement and the yarn is a little tougher than the standard soft cottons meaning they will last a long time.
I included a little crochet hook or knitting needle size guide for box subscribers this month. If they are anything like me then they have their favourite hooks and needles or ones that they have had a fairly long time and they may find that the size rubs off them sometimes! It’s so frustrating when you go to pick up a hook and forget what size it is! This little gadget will really help with that. I bought an extra one for me and I have used it so many times already.
The deadline for August boxes is fast approaching and there are still some available. Why not pop over and order yours? Don’t forget that you have the option of purchasing a one off box or subscribing for 12 months! Find your perfect box here
