Each kit offers a brand new fictional story and crochet pattern along with hand-dyed yarn and a handmade accessory, all bound together in a theme of romance, history, and crochet. JOIN THE ADVENTURE!

“I have gotten every kit! The yarn is always amazing, I have learned new stitch techniques, and the stories are great. It feels like my birthday when they arrive!” — Kandle Y.
“Each time I receive a kit I think it cannot possibly be better than the last one. But this time you have moved the bar so very high! WOW OH WOW OH WOW!!!!!!!!! 💖” — Libby N.
“What’s not to love? I get so excited when I get my kit, like a little kid getting a present. Lol. The stories are well written and as an avid reader I can’t put it down until I either fall asleep or finish the book. The patterns are well written and wonderful items to make some you want to make it over and over again. The yarn is wonderful and the surprise extra is always great.” — Christine S.

Our First Kit Club of 2020 Will Include:
The First Half of Unraveling: The Madness of Adelaide Rourke by author C. Jane Reid. The 1960s are over for Adelaide Guthrie Rourke. Her husband is dead. Her older sisters are estranged. Her mother doesn’t understand her. And all her best friend wants is reveling in the Age of Aquarius. As Adelaide’s world crumbles around her, a woman comes to her, a woman with kind and knowing eyes and a smile she recognizes. It’s one she is wearing in the photographs from her wedding day, a smile she has since lost. Can this woman be the one to help her recover from her grief? Or will she lead Adelaide farther into chaos?
The newest design by Laurinda Reddig embraces a quintessential crochet stitch from the 60s in a more modern style and colors that even Adelaide’s best friend and hippie, Frankie, would be thrilled to have.
This kit features 3 skeins of DK weight 75% Cotton/25% Flax Linen yarn from the Monticello Collection of Cestari Sheep & Wool. One of the rare times we get to offer a non-wool yarn. The Cool color choice will include Jefferson Sky, Jefferson Fig, and Tufton Green. The Warm color choices will include Damson Plum, Cellar Stone, and Day Lily. Cestari is a family-run yarn company that grows and mills their own wool, and mills these cotton-blend yarns from cotton grown right there in Virginia.
Our designer Laurinda has been experimenting with new crafts this year and is cooking up something ideal for Adelaide, both useful and appropriate to her era, as well as something fun for you to enjoy!
