Wool and the Gang

If you are a ‘yarny’ like me (in other words a yarn geek, aka a yarn addict) then you will know and love Wool and the Gang. They are a super yarn brand, fresh, fun, modern and very relevant for today’s modern knit and crochet fan.

They regularly bring out new and seasonal superb, yarn ranges. For the month of June they have launched ‘Tina Tape’ along with some new and exciting crochet and knit kits.

Tina Tape

Tina Tape Yarn is 100% vegan, uses no harmful chemicals and saves water. This 0.5cm flat tape is softer than silk and cooler than linen. Tina Tape Yarn uses renewable energy and is made of fibre from sustainably sourced eucalyptus trees.

It’s super soft to knit and crochet with, perfect for tops, dresses and sweaters.

Everytime Scarf Kit

The kit includes the pattern, label and yarn, you choose the colour. Knitting needles and the crochet hook are optional. (crochet hook size 5mm and knitting needles 12 mm) I love unwrapping parcels and ordering everything together makes it so much easier when you are eager to get started

My Everytime Scarf Story with an honest admission!

Ok I can’t knit! I ordered this kit because I thought it was a crochet project (oops?) However, only the border of this scarf is crocheted.

I tried to knit, oh how I tried! I watched the videos and undid my work several times, all to no avail. Finally I relented and called in an expert.

Knitting teacher for ldj

Nicky or Mrs Sutmakes as she is known on instagram is a professional knitter.We arranged to meet over a large Gin and Tonic on a beautiful sunny Friday and I was taught how to knit and purl. Simple? Well actually no it wasn’t. On arriving home, I was over eager to try out my new found skills but found myself in a bit of a muddle, I was dropping stitches everywhere (and no it was nothing to do with the GIN!) I am simply not a knitter and never will be I am a crocheter.

So huge thank you to Mrs S for rescuing me and knitting 75% of this project on my behalf, she is a super star.

Details:

Kit available here you just have to choose your colours, which is probably the hardest part, they are all so pretty!

I also added an extra edging to the ends of my scarf I simply worked a treble stitch and a chain into every other stitch along the edge.

It was such a windy day, but I like these pics the best!

    I’m not a knitter, but have done some years ago, I might give it another try as you’ve given me the idea again. Hope you’re well Ashely. x Jacqui mummabstylish

    I love the scarf and I so badly want to be a knitter but I am so NOT a knitter! I fail every time I try – I just find it fiddly. But more than anything, I want to get the hang of crochet – I’ve had a couple of false starts but I am going to have another go and try to find some good video instruction on youtube. I am a fabric addict but I can easily imagine that transferring to wool. x

      Same here Sharon! I will never be a knitter and I think thats ok
      cheers!
