What the Mood Monday - And the winner is...


A while back I won a giveaway by Laura Nelkin from Nelkin Designs. My prize arrived while I was in Australia and I'm finally getting around to blogging about it.

Just for leaving a wee little comment on Laura's blog, I won a copy of her Clarus pattern. Clarus is a lovely lace top-down shawlette. I also received some lovely yarn to make it with.

The yarn is Shalimar Yarns Breathless. It is a superwash blend of merino, cashmere and silk. The squishiness factor is unreal. Laura has sent me a skein in the Oyster colourway.

I'm not sure when I will get to start my Clarus but in the meantime I will definitely be spending some cuddle time with this yarn!

Speaking of giveaways... I have a couple blogging milestones coming up in the next little while so watch this space for your chance to be a winner!

Cheers, Nikki


  1. Oooh, lucky you! Love the pattern and the yarn is great - I have some Shalimar yarn in stash and it is so soft and lovely :)
