Envision the History of Crochet through Fiction and Design…

Ficstitches Yarns Kit Club is a quarterly kit club specially designed for crocheters that combines your two favorite hobbies, Crocheting and Reading! So much more than a yarn club, each element of these kits is a mysterious delight…

Journey with the Ficstitches Yarns Crochet Kit Club on an adventure back to the days of old.

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.

The First Half of Unraveling: The Hooverville Happening by author C. Jane Reid.

It’s 1933, and the Great Depression has dug its claws into the country. In St. Louis, Nedra Sinclaire is one of the lucky ones, though, because she doesn’t live in the local Hooverville shanty town, but volunteers with her parents as they help see to the sick and injured among the destitute residents. When her work is done she transforms into just Ned, a scrapper running with the Tin Can Gang, shooting marbles and looking for anything they can use, sell, or eat. But when the leader of the gang is killed, nobody but Ned is willing to investigate. Determined that he doesn’t fade away into obscurity, Ned puts her secret on the line to uncover the truth.

Ned’s parents, Josie and Patrick Sinclaire, know what hardship is like. They also know how to put themselves on the line for the sake of others, a lesson their daughter, Ned, has taken to heart. In the evening, listening to the latest radio dramas, Ned and her mother crochet gifts to hand out to the Hooverville residents. But yarn isn’t easy to come by and every scrap is used anyway it can be. Laurinda Reddig has recreated one of this pieces Ned makes to donate, keeping the ‘make do’ attitude alive.

This kit features approx. 914 yards of fingering weight yarn from Mosaic Moon. Choose between the “Ochre” (warm) and “Pear” (cool) set of six skeins of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon yarn. In the spirit of using whatever yarn is at hand, we have added as the accessory five mini skeins dyed to match the full skein of speckled yarn for the creation of the clever pattern included.

As always, we enclose a gift tied into the theme of the story. In this one, you’ll find a handy tool that Ned keeps with her while she conducts her investigation.
