The sparkle of Dew Drops: Yarnbox- Art Yarns+ Review




I don't know about you, but I am so excited about spring! The flowers are blooming! My Lilac bush is budded and so fragrant! In grade school I devoured the book "Secret Garden" and since then I have always wanted an English-style garden. Last month the talented Iris Schreier managed to capture the essence of this in yarn and with an amazing pattern.


This exclusive designer box is like no other featuring specially selected fiber and colors for a special design just for our members. Iris Schreier of Artyarns has taken this gardenscape inspiration and put it into her gorgeous fibers for this fourth edition of Yarnbox Plus+ Artyarns. She has created for us the Gilded Age Shawl kit featuring the beautiful Merino Cloud yarn and a bit of sparkle with Beaded Silk & Sequins. Pattern Link here.

Each kit contains a 3 mini-skein gradient of Merino Cloud (170 yards each; 510 yards total) made of 80% Merino Wool and 20% Cashmere along with a mini skein of Beaded Silk & Sequins (55 yards) in one of three color sets:

Delphinium

Bellflower

Coralbells

With her Gilded Age Shawl design, Iris takes us back to the Victorian era where tea garden parties were first held in the lovely gardens of Britain. Worked with rows of lace, garter and stockinette, this is a fun and pleasurable project you’ll enjoy knitting.

The pattern is ready for download!

A huge thank you to our very own KanKnitKing for pattern testing this for everyone in the Coralbells pictured above!

There's still a chance to purchase a Yarnbox Plus+ Artyarns box of your own in any of these three blissful color sets. They are currently available in our Overstock Shop. Choose a kit in your favorite color or purchase additional sets and collect them all!
