Subscribers found 4 balls of Sirdar’s brand new yarn ‘Replay’ in Bunny Hop Blue. This yarn is absolutely gorgeous and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it in the boxes. It has a softly marled effect which gives it the lived-in look of a favourite sweatshirt that feels like it’s been worn and washed to irresistable softness. It has been designed especially for kids, and the lightweight, cotton acrylic blend is perfect for playtime. It is a really smooth yarn to knit with, and the has all the benefits of cotton yarn with the lightness of the acrylic. The stitch definition is incredible too. Each 50g ball contains approx 150 metres and it is machine washable on 40°
Because of the gorgeous effect that this yarn creates and the incredible softness I decided that the perfect pattern for this yarn is a simple jumper. The addition of the buttons on the shoulder gives the pattern a little something special to it.
I included buttons which are a matching blue but have a beautiful striped effect on them to add a little something special to it.
The treat this month is a pair of stork scissors. These are incredibly popular right now. Did you know that the first ever stork scissors were created in the 19th century and used by midwives as a clamp to stop the bloodflow in a new born babys umbilical cord? The design has changed somewhat as the original designs were blunt with the beak being at a 45° angle!
