A Soft and Squishy New Crochet Project in Merino Soft Brush: Free Pattern Coming Soon

It's been a while since I crocheted anything non-peacock related so today I decided it's time for something completely different. I love working on my peacock designs, but it's not something I can do while watching TV. I really want to crochet something that doesn't require a lot of counting and that has rounds that take a while to finish. And besides, I have a few episodes of Poldark on the hard disk recorder, so I really need this new project ;-).

Today I'll just show you the yarn I selected for it and will keep you updated on progress once I've actually started what I have in mind. And I'll share the pattern here on my blog! The yarn is Scheepjes'* Merino Soft Brush, a brand new addition to the regular Merino Soft line you may be familiar with through The Last Dance on the Beach CAL. It's the same soft mixture of 50% Superwash Merino Wool, 25% Micro and 25% Acrylic but the Brush version has lovely soft tweed flecks "brushed" into it. I'm really looking forward to making something soft and squishy.

I selected 3 colours from the 7 available, all named after famous painters of course. So I've got Van der Leck, Breitner and Israëls to work with. For me, selecting colours is always the most challenging part of the design process; I'm very particular about it because colours really define the outcome, just as with painting really...... I hope to have a WIP to show you soon and in case you want to try Merino Soft Brush yourself (because you definitely need a new project, right?), it is available from Wool Warehouse and Deramores will stock it soon*.
