For me, colour and texture rule and most of the inspiration feeding my imagination comes from the natural world. I see knitting as art, as viable as any other, and no matter what the tool or preferred palette, in human hands, magic happens.

Kits

Welcome to my kit shopping page, perfect for yarn lovers and those who either have trouble combining colors or who just can't acquire such lovelies in their area.  Note that silk is my default position and that I regularly plunder the treasures at Fleece Artist and HandMaiden, my local hand-dyeing maestros. However, I literally comb the world for interesting textures and lovely colors. my kits are special. 

However, once these kits are gone, they're gone, as I'm off to compiling another yarn gathering. Often I'll spot a unique hand-dyed yarn and then search out compatible mates in color and texture until I have enough for a kit. I call this yarnscaping. Since many of the yarns found are one-of-a-kind, they become nearly impossible to duplicate.

My gatherings of color and texture work perfectly with any multi-yarn project and most come in quantities suitable for vests, wraps or shrugs. Just by adding a base color, you can often extend these kits to cover most any project. All kits come with your PDF pattern of choice. Just select one from my pattern page and I'll send it to you in PDF form by email. All kits come in a clear plastic project bag.

Fiber Fixes are like kits gone lite. With less yardage and only three-to four balls of yarn, they provide tasty little samples where you can try extraordinary yarn for much less than you could manage otherwise. All Fiber Fixes come with a package of coordinating beads plus a print copy of my popular Breeze pattern. A bargain.

All kits come pre-wound in balls ready for knitting except for full hanks of 200 yards or more.

A flat shipping rate of $15.00 applies for all US and Canadian orders. Because the packages are often crossing borders, they often get snagged at customs, making things slower than I'd like. Expect a delivery time of three weeks. If you'd prefer a guaranteed delivery of 1 week through UPS, just email me and I'll arrange it for an additional $10. Overseas customers, please email me and I'll give you a price (PS: I do supplement overseas shipping to make it more affordable).

 

Monitors and perceptions of colors vary. Please email me if you are resolute on receiving specific tones that may not be exactly as you expect when seen in person. I OFFER EXCHANGES ON ALL KITS WITHIN 20 DAYS OF PURCHASE BUT NO REFUNDS unless materials are defective or I've made an error.
