Last week, on a dry but misty and cold autumn day a parcel was delivered to my door. Yes, it was the most perfectly packaged crochet kit from Wool & The Gang!
I was sent the Sweet Intuition Scarf kit to review and I have to say, I am now a WATG convert. I am completely besotted and in love with the Crazy Sexy Wool that was included in my kit. It is luxurious yet keeps it natural texture of the 100% Peruvian wool.
I initially wanted to make my scarf in their scrumptious ‘Bronzed Olive’ colourway which is the most gorgeous shade of Mustard Yellow. Unfortunately, in fact, fortunately for me this colour was out of stock so I “ummed” and “aahhed” over the neutral pastels, but settled on ‘Cinnamon Dust’ and I am so pleased I did. The colour is to die for. It is rich, and deep. Sort of like a burnt orange.
It is the perfect autumnal colour. It is even more gorgeous in person too!!
The pattern itself is simple, the instructions are clear and there are even little diagrams so that even those with the most basic of crochet knowledge could follow it.
I snuggled myself up under a blanket, lit a scrummy spiced apple candle, put on netflix and then made a start on my new scarf.
I am a speedy crocheter and had this finished in just over an hour. I wish it had taken longer because I was just enjoying the combination of this natural wool against the natural bamboo crochet hook. (anyone else LOVE the sound of wool against a bamboo or wooden hook?? Just me??)
The day my Sweet Intuition Scarf had it’s first outing I had SO many compliments. It was a perfect autumn day, you know the ones where you can still sit outside to enjoy a coffee, it’s cool enough for a scarf but warm enough for just a long sleeved t-shirt with it. I love the colour even more against the monochrome stripes!
All in all, I am very impressed with the team at Wool & The Gang, I highly recommend the yarn, and particularly the kits!! I am looking forward to working with this brand again in the future!
Be back soon with all the yarny talk!
