It's nearly time for a bit of 8th anniversary celebration in the form of a SSYC Sock Kit! I plan on putting the kits up on the website on Wednesday, and here's what you'll find in this kit. Well, two kits really, because we have two different bag options for you.
Each Kit includes a Babette skein of yarn from Miss Babs, dyed in the It's our Yarniversary colorway. "Babettes" are what Babs calls a method of dyeing where each skein has the same colors included, but one can be very different from the other. Differences can be found in depth of color, saturation, how much of each color is in each skien, how the colors blend together... so while each skein is in the same family and uses the same fiber and dye, each one is unique. The picture below shows a nice representation of what the skeins look like. Yours will be a special fibery work of art. Give the image a click to see a larger version. Go on, it's worth it.
The yarn comes nestled in your choice of bag. Like I mentioned, there are two bags options, so you'll really be choosing between two kits with the same fibery goodness, just different bags (unless you choose one of each). Here are the coordinating zippered bag options.
The bags are 14"x10.5"- so plenty big for a sock project, or even a shawl project. A very useful tool in a knitter's arsenal.
Everyone likes to get flowers on their special day, so how about some adorable crocheted flower stitch markers?
And finally, I'm including gold seed beads and four beaded pattern ideas. I thought it would be fun to knit a little bling into our projects, and this color really looks nice with some translucent gold colored beads.
The colors of this kit are quite celebratory, don't you think? Like a disco party, or an evening summer barbeque. Fire reds, burnt oranges, golden yellow, fierce violet, overdyed with black and gray. J'adore.
Again, this kit will go up for sale on Wednesday, and you can check the blog or Facebook to find out when. Or, sign up for the store's e-newsletter to be notified directly to your Inbox.
It's all hands on deck over the next few days to get these ready for you. We're listening to 90's rap, and wrapping these up all pretty so they are all ready on Wednesday to their new homes. If you are local and want to pick up your kit during the Anniversary Party on June 8, please place your order online on Wednesday, because our kits typically sell out in a day. Just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org after you place your order and ask me to refund your shipping because you'll be picking it up.
