Tomorrow, Wednesday Oct 10, our second/last Halloween Knit Kit of the year will become available!
This is the Glittery Gourd Knit Kit, and each of the three pieces is hand made just for this occasion. First, we have a skein of Madelinetosh's limited edition yarn, Tosh Merino Light + Copper, which is their popular Merino Light singles adorned with copper sparkles. This yarn was released first to us a month ago, and is already sold out at Madelinetosh (I ordered a lot and still have some left for you). I do hope they have their mill make more next fall, but it's still up in the air. The color is Lampyridae, which I named because the color reminds me of the first section of the body of a firefly with the oranges with black dots.
The adorably Halloweeny bag for this kit is embellished with gold thread detailed pumpkins, stars and moons and this little bit of dazzle perfectly ties in with the sparkled skein of yarn.
This kit is finished with three Halloween stitch markers from Katrinkles. Katy specially designed these pumpkins and then etched out the pumpkins and laser burned the accents. Aren't they perfect?
This kit will go up for sale Wednesday morning, usually somewhere 9-11 EST at the Kits & Club link. And I will have a few extra skeins of yarn to go with this kit, if you want to grab one or more of those for a larger project. But they will only be available to those who also purchase the kit at the same time in the same cart. Please don't add it to your cart if you don't also have the kit in your cart. Because I will take it out before we ship. Sorry, but I really will, even though it will make me a bit sad to do so.
For those who entered our Socktober contest, we now have the winners! Rebecca, Martha and Elaine each won a $25 gift certificate to the shop. Congrats! Check the blog and Instagram throughout the month as we continue with the Socktober celebratory contests.
