Christmas in July: Endpaper Mitts

We have a new holiday kit to introduce this month.  When we met in the late spring to come up with project ideas for fun kits that might make stunning gifts, this was the first pattern that Dawn thought of.  The Endpaper Mitts by Eunny Jang are stunning; just the thing to impress.  We hope that while the holidays still feel miles away you might consider trying a project that might be too much to tackle in late November when the holiday deadline is looming.

Our kits combine a copy of the pattern with two beautiful skeins of Smooshy with Cashmere by Dream in Color.  These 113 gram skeins have 400 yards.  With its luscious blend of luxury fibers, Smooshy with Cashmere is opulence in a skein. The smooth, plied base, combined with Dream in Color’s unique dyeing process, gives Smooshy with Cashmere its deep and lushly-shaded tones. And, 20% cash­mere makes this yarn divinely next-to-skin soft, while 10% nylon lends a durability that will ensure that your gift can become a keepsake.

Our sample mitts are stunning and if you get a chance to visit the shop to try them on, you’ll see that this luxurious yarn is the perfect match for the pattern and that the $70 for the kit will be well spent.

To provide even more choice in color you may elect to upgrade your kit.  For an additional $5 you can select two skeins of Anzula Squishy to complete the project.  This yarn is a similar blend of merino, cashmere and nylon, but this yarn has been super-washed giving it the ability to be machine washable without harm.  That added benefit may ensure that your gift can be worn and easily washed for years to come.  These 115 gram skeins have 375 yards with  a more luxurious density and a beautiful palette of colors that we love to work with.

If you aren’t already familiar and comfortable with color work, Vic E. will be teaching a single session class on Tuesday July 16th to walk you through the basics.  The class fee of $139 includes the cost of the kit as well as two hours of helpful instruction.  Class registration will close on the 9th so call as soon as possible to reserve your spot. 970-407-1461.

These kits are available on Tuesday July 2nd and we anticipate that they will be very popular.  The limited amount will be available only as long as supplies last, so be sure to come in to make your selection early in the month
