As many of you know, this was the final design of Marinke Slump (aka Wink), before her passing.
To honour her creative light and her talent, 12 of Marinke’s friends and bloggers put their energy and crochet skilss together, to finish Marinke’s unfinished design and completed this CAL. A tribute to Marinke, and an invitation to all people to join Marinke’s last dance on the beach.
Scheepjes has put together 6 wonderful yarn kits, all the colours were choosen by Marinke herself.
There are 3 basic kits in Scheepjes Colour Crafter yarn : these kits contain the yarn, and a lovely special label.
There are also 3 luxury kits in Scheepjes Merino Soft yarn : with all the yarn in it, the special label, and some extra goodies, all put together in an amazing bag.
The kits will be available in 3 colour choices : Dance under the stars, Dance in the sea and Dance in the rain.
