Is there anything nicer than sitting down with a good book and a comfy knitting project? Maybe getting together with like-minded people to discuss the book and your projects.
We had such a great time at our last book club meeting. Did you miss it? Hopefully, you'll be able to join us for the next one.
This time, we're reading A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle (just in time for the movie). As you can see from the picture, the book is a well loved one. We will be rereading the book and making the Helical Stripes Cowl by Mary-Ann Lammers. You will need 3 50 gram skeins for the cowl. The colors are Meg - green, Charles Wallace - pink, and Calvin - Yellow.
There are several options for the club:
1. Basic - Yarn (3 50g skeins) + pattern + kitchen towel = $55
2. Basic/book - Yarn + pattern + canvas tote bag + book = $65
3. Basic/extras - Yarn + pattern + canvas tote bag + extras (secret but cool things that will link to the book) = $85
4. Basic/extras/book - Yarn + pattern + canvas tote bag + book + extras = $95
Everything will ship around the end of March and we'll arrange the video chat for the end of April.
Okay - yarn information -
150 grams in 3 50g skeins
80% superwash merino, 20% Nylon
Our yarns are hand dyed or hand painted using professional acid dyes. We wash each skein carefully after dying but slight bleeding may occur during first wash. Skeins may vary in color slightly so if using more than one skein of yarn in a project, please alternate skeins every few rows.
This soft, squishy yarn is perfect for socks, shawls, sweaters or any project where you would use a Fingering weight.
Care of yarn - superwash merino will allow you to wash your items in the washing machine but please use cold water. For best results and care, hand washing is recommended.
Sweater quantities of yarn can be ordered - please message us for information.
