My Cryptonite Shawl

August 24, 2016

 

This week will see the release of Melanie Berg's newest shawl design 'My Cryptonite', which is the result of a collaboration between Melanie and Skein.  To celebrate the shawl's release, we will be stocking up the shop with colour kits that include three skeins of Merino Cashmere in colours that will knit up perfectly into your own 'My Cryptonite' shawl.  There will be eleven colour combos to choose from:

 

 

Please note that the kits do not include the pattern, which is available to buy on Ravelry.

Kits will be in store on Friday 26th August at 9am AEST!  So don't forget to pop on over to the shop and get yours!

 

 

We thought it would be fun to do a My Cryptonite KAL!  Feel free to use any Skein yarn that you have in your stash, or treat yourself to a colour kit; whatever works for you.  The KAL will run until October 31st, so there is plenty of time to get your yarns and finish the shawl.  The KAL will be run over in our Ravelry group, so come and join us!  The colour combo I'm using is #9 (Paintbox, Ice On A Windowpane and Jersey) - it's a lot more subtle than Melanie's but I am LOVING it.  I can't wait to see what you put together.

Have a wonderful weekend!
