Bousta Beanie Kit

I'm a little late to the party, but I loved knitting Gundrun Johnston's Bousta Beanie pattern for Shetland Wool Week so much that before I had even properly finished mine (note the lack of blocking or pom pom) I put together a kit.

Kit includes:

* 220 yards of 3-Ply Romney, Fingering weight as a main color and

* 110 yards each of 3-Ply Straw's Farm Island Sheep, fingering weight, in a light blue gradient, and a dark blue (both blues dyed with natural indigo). 

The pattern is a free download to publicize Shetland Wool Week 

Please note:  I will be traveling for my "day job" next week - all orders placed by noon on Friday, September 15 will go out on September 15.  Any orders placed after that will be mailed on Friday, September 22.  Sorry about that.

Engineers Armwarmers Knitting Kits

I originally knit a pair of these armwarmers to fill both a both hole in my work wardrobe and a need for a simple knitting project that I could easily pick and put down as time required.  The design is inspired by the colors and textures of the Tracy Arm - Ford's Terror Wilderness Area in Southeast Alaska.  And then I wrote the pattern down.  And then I realized that I had knit them from the scraps of random cone ends and yarn seconds that fill my luggage, and that only very small amounts of the secondary colors were required.  So I decided to put together a knitting kit.  And then I decided that they should have project bags, which obviously led to the need for an original block print and a stitch marker.  And the pattern involves rolling a die, so that it included as well.  Basically I got a little carried away.  These kits are of an extremely limited edition. 

The kit is based around the semi-worsted yarns spun from the fleece of the mixed Cotswold Romney flock of Liberty Wool Farm in Palermo, Maine and hand dyed with natural dyes.  

This kit contains:

·      Three skeins (330 yards) of Upton Yarns Romney > Cotswold in Loam

·      One mini skein (40 yards) of Upton Yarns Romney > Cotswold in Bark

·      One mini skein (25 yards) of Upton Yarns Romney > Cotswold in Sitka

·      One very mini skein (4 yards) of Upton Yarns Romney x Cotswold in Lichen

·      One stitch marker from Blue Dog Workshop (another Mainer! View her full line of stitch markers on Etsy)

·      One die, neatly tied

·      All inside a flour sack project bag, hand printed with an original block print designed by Sam and carved by me. 

****Important *****  A paper copy of the pattern is not included in the kit.  The pattern may be downloaded from Ravelry, or a .pdf can be emailed upon request. *****
