Well, yes, this is so much more than an ordinary knitting kit: it does include yarn and a pattern, a great-looking, trendy project-bag that you’re bound to love and even a pair of super-dooper Cubics interchangeable needles, if you decide you need those, too.
– So, what’s so extraordinary about it? (you might ask)
-Isn’t it obvious? The inspiration, love and care Lise put into every detail when she started planning this, a few months ago, THIS is what’s really extraordinary when you come to think of a young girl, an indie fiberista, who aimed for the best: luxury yarn (maybe the softest yarn I’ve ever worked with) hand-dyed by herself in 4 amazing shades, an original pattern designed by yours truly and then tested and tech-edited by my dear fellow knitter Lena K., communicating with a number of people in order to put everything together in time! She did it!
Lise was very clear about it from the start: this should be an exclusive, luxurious kit, available only for some short time and, after the yarn is dyed and sent to the buyers, an Internet KAL will take place, so that the designer can help them into knitting this. There will be surprise gifts for those participating in the KAL, which makes everything even more intriguing, doesn’t it?
She has done her best and arranged everything in a remarkable way: the yarn is so inspiring that designing the “ponchette” has been real fun for me, too. If you are interested in seeing the actual knitted “ponchette” in 3 colourways and you happen to be in the whereabouts, you can visit the Swiss Wulle Festival. Treliz will be there and so will Cyclades!
Pre-orders will be running till 12th October, so, make sure you get yours in time!!!
