The festive season is with us again. It's time for cosy cabled sweaters, hot chocolate, friends, family and Betwixtmas - our annual Make Along, designed for those quiet days between Christmas and New Year.
Thank you for joining us on our Yuletide journey. We will snuggle down together and make a stunning shawl; perfect for a winter walk. Using luxury fibres, exclusively dyed for this project by our friends at Urth Yarns, we will create something truly beautiful together. Let’s share mindful moments, a festive chat or two, and recharge our batteries with a beautiful make.
There are three exclusive kits this year in colourways chosen by members of the Black Sheep family. Our two wool versions are the Emma which is inspired by holly berries and wreaths. Nicola combines a winter white with brilliant blue and grey. For those that prefer cotton* we have the Amy, light colours kissed by frost. Each kit is beautiful and creates the perfect shawl.
However, as always we want this year's Betwixtmas to be available to everyone so if you want to stash-bust or make it in something completely different, you can. Combine three colours or make it in one, it is up to you, make it your own!
This is my favourite project of the year. I love Betwixtmas and will be sharing my progress on our Facebook Make Along. Why don’t you join in the fun and share yours too?
Merry Christmas to you all from our family to yours,
Love Sara and the Black Sheep team x
