A Bag Full of Yarn Love and a Pattern to Share Soon

Happy Friday! Look what I've got in my bag.....and look at the bag too! It was a surprise gift from my dear friend Marca and it makes for such a good photo prop. These delicious balls of Scheepjes Catona Denim deserve to be shown off really well ;-)

The reason for this picture is that I'm working on a little something that I want for myself to adorn something very specific with and I'm going to use this lovely soft and relatively thick cotton yarn for it. So far I've mainly used mercerized cotton for my designs but I feel it's time to explore other types of yarn now. I selected Catona Denim because for this pattern - which I'm going to share with you in a while - I wanted a thicker and sturdier yarn and because I just love a bit of an ombre effect. Especially the ombre effect in the lighter colors can give a design that "vintagy" or faded look, which is something that I really like.

So, what do I have planned? Well......I'm not going to reveal what it is just yet but I can tell you that it is a classic stitch pattern design (with a hint of peacock) that I tweaked a little bit so that it has exactly the size I want and can serve the purpose I have in mind for it. It's ideal for beginners who've never tried this stitch pattern before. Check back next Friday for a little sneak peek!

For now, let's look at the yarn in a bit more detail. As I've already mentioned, it's Scheepjes Catona Denim, a 100% cotton yarn, sport weight, 5 ply. A ball is 50 gr with 125 meters/136 yards and comes in 18 lovely colors. Although I remained in my peacock colors comfort zone, for this project you can choose any color you like. Which are your favorites?

And in case you're wondering, you can get the yarn at Wool Warehouse  and Deramores (international shipping)*.
