In the Land of Sweets, more is more! Bon bons, peppermint sticks, and chocolate drops are just the beginning. The dances that make up this section of The Nutcracker are the most colourful and exciting of the whole ballet, and the Sugar Plum Fairy is the indulgent queen of this confectionery kingdom. For devoted knitters, yarn is sweeter than candy, and it’s just as difficult to restrain ourselves when faced with a world of choice. Who hasn’t stood in a yarn shop staring at piles of skeins in every colour of the rainbow, eyes shining like a child in a sweet shop?
The Land of Sweets Cowl was designed to showcase the knitter’s version of this wonderland…a perfect use for mini skeins. t’s also a brilliant way to use up the lovely leftovers that every avid knitter has stashed away. Stripes, simple lace, and an irrepressible sense of fun are at the heart of this cosy cowl, which will brighten up even the greyest winter day.
