Now's the time to snag SSYC's Valentine Kit if you'd like one! As usual, I put together as many of these as I can, but since all or most of the kit's pieces are hand made, there's a limit to how many I can get. So if you see the link say something about no product found, that means it's gone..... but also we are apparently having issues with the server being too busy... so hopefully we can keep up with that throughout the day...

What is in this, our third, Valentine Sock Kit? This one features a delicately dotted, special edition colorway from Claudia's Handpainted Yarn. Confetti Confection is a mostly naked skein, sprinked with red, pinks and lavender. It's complimented by the Sweetest Heart Sock pattern by Lara Neel (which will be e-mailed after your shipment). The top-down pattern features two rows of hearts on the front, which taper to one heart at the toe. The back of the sock is a simple rib.
The icing on this cake is a set of six hand-crocheted sheep stitch markers which fit up to size US 10 needles. And you'll also find a complimentary sweet treat tucked in your package. Mmmmmm CANDY!
I hope you like this little kit I've designed for you (and selfishly, me)! I had a great time putting it together, and I'm very appreciative of the artisans who were able to work on my short timeline, turning what usually is a 3 month process into a 3 week one. We will ship these out to you as quickly as possible, but please be patient with us as it will likely take a few extra days to ship - the SSYC Crew is a small group of three. We take great care in assembling each package and it takes quite a bit of time to ship several hundred of these all over the world.
For those that have been waiting for Dream in Color's contribution to the day o' love, they've just released February's Dream Club selection!
To the cursory glance, this worsted weight skein looks like a vivid semi-solid pink. But upon closer inspection, you find that this is actually a variegated colorway with berry and hot reds, and hot pink and vivid salmon- a true Valentine stunner.
The accompanying Heart on a String pattern was designed by Beth Kling, and is a feminine neckwarmer. Very cute, but not suited to someone like me with a less-than-gazelle-like-neck. But I'll admit that this colorway is one that I immediately thought "BABY GIRL SWEATER!!!" So if you're thinking the same thing, snag a few of them. And if you want the accompanying free pattern, just e-mail me your invoice number after your purchase (or just respond to your e-mailed receipt).
