Lights out. A bottle of bubbly waiting on ice. Friends hidden behind the curtains and couches. Hushed whispers and held-in giggles. Anticipation. What could be more fun than a surprise party?

The Surprise Party shawl is a bubbly celebration of colour, friendships, and the huge yarn party that is the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool festival. Inspired by the exuberant spirit of The Grocery Girls, Surprise Party is a collaboration with Hue Loco Yarns, who has created fabulous hand-dyed colourways in honour of two familiar Grocery Girl-isms: “Shut the Front Door!” and “I Can’t Even!”

With simple lace, a graphic twisted rib stitch section, and plenty of relaxing garter stitch, Surprise Party is a captivating and addictive knit which will keep you dancing until the pretty picot bind-off. Let’s party our way through the start of knitting season and raise a glass of something sparkling to our deep love of yarn, knitting, and the wonderful friendships it has brought us in the global fibre community.
