It's nearly time to debut our two Valentine Knit Kits!
I love creating holiday kits for you. I get to think outside my normal box and I get to work with new crafters and dyers and chocolatiers and bakeries to put together something special for those of us who like to celebrate our knitting. This time around, I have two different options for you- one adorably ghoulish and one sweet and trendy. First, the Zombie Love Knit Kit!
This one has a grey and pink skein that ends in an explosion of speckles, dyed up by none other than Yarn Love. It's a durable yet soft merino/nylon blend, so it should make it through the zombie apocalypse unharmed. The adorable yet grim bag features zombies in love on one side, and bones in the shape of hearts on the other. The drawstring bag is reversible, fits two skeins of yarn and is perfect option for those of us who have a tendency to overstuff our zippered project bags and then snag our yarn in the zipper. No zipper, no snagging!
This kit comes with a chocolate tasting bar from local Debrands Fine Chocolates and a set of 2 Clover tapestry needles. This kit will sell for $56. A fab deal for yarn, a project bag, a treat and a tool.
This next one speaks to my love of all things Flamingo. If I had a Florida house, I would be the lady with plastic flamingos all over my lawn. If you feel the same, you'll adore the Flamingo Flamenco Knit Kit. These well-balanced birds are all the rage in décor right now, and I just couldn't leave them out of this year's Valentine offering. The yarn for this kit is super soft because it's Dream in Color's Smooshy with Cashmere. With 20% cashmere in this merino/cash/nylon blend, you'll definitely notice the luxurious texture when knitting it up and wearing. The color, Flamingo Flamenco (sounds like Tomato/Tom-ah-to, right?) is a combination of salmon, bubble gum, and pale pink overdyed with a subtle grey. This color would look great on most of us- a cowl worn right against the skin or a lacy shawl. Aaaand I've just gone down the Ravelry Rabbit Hole... now I want to knit this into a Reyna. Or a Starshower. Eeek- what about Appia? OK, definitely the Antarktis. *sigh* Someone stop me. Deep breath.
The reverse side is nearly as awesome as the flamingo side, doncha think? Bubble gum pink hearts and Love scrolled across the fabric.
This kit is completed with a Debrands caramel pecan turtle and a set of two Clover bent-tip tapestry needles. It can be yours for $55. And if you click fast enough.
These kits will both go up for sale on Monday, Jan 23. Usually I list these early/mid morning EST. As usual, I do expect them both to sell out that day. I do wish I could put more kits together for everyone, but due to the hand made nature and all, there's a limited supply. I do have awesome things planned for spring and summer, so if you miss out, just know there's always something super to come too!
