Hello, lovely readers! Today’s post is an attempt to save you from FOMO (or FOMK? Fear of missing kits?)
The kit I collaborated on with Yarn Over New York and Garnet Designs is on pre-order only until the end of the day today, June 24!
The kit, which you get to customize in color and in yarn base, is inspired by the ancient Near Eastern queen Semiramis. You get a project bag from KnitSpinQuilt, one or two skeins of fingering weight yarn from Yarn Over New York, a stitch marker, and a shawl pattern for the Semiramis shawl, which uses lace patterns from Gannet Designs that actually encode Semiramis’ name in the main lace pattern.
The shawl pattern uses either one or two skeins of yarn, and the large size looks like this:
You can order the kit here on Yarn Over New York’s site, or here on KnitSpinQuilt’s Etsy Shop (the former has fewer fees for us!)
If you’re a knitter, or a yarn-buying person, what makes you pick a kit? I’m contemplating doing future collaborations with other dyers, and I’d love to know what you all are looking for!
