Cois Farraige

Does anyone fancy a mystery KAL?

I’m a bit late this year but I think you’ll forgive me when you find out why…I’ve had a brand new yarn spun just for the shawl! If you’ve tried Blasta then I think you’re going to like Blasta Light. This is a single-ply version of the same yarn; 100% wool, 60% Irish fleece with a lofty, woollen spun halo. It’s glorious to block this yarn; the stitches bloom and fill right into themselves.

  1. Hi Carol,
    I just sent you an e-mail concerning the buying date for your yarn for the KAL beginning 2/26/2021. I just went back to reread the information and found it was not being sold until January 23, not February 23, my mistake. I am sorry. I would not be able to get the yarn to NH before 2/26, would I? Any suggestions on what I should do?
