I love our 2010 “Loved by Loopy” Valentine Kit. I saved myself one because I fell in love with the yarn (and of course I have always loved Keri’s bags). I’m not sure if I’ll knit socks or a scarf with it. Wouldn’t it make a pretty scarf? What are you favorite scarf patterns for fingering weight yarns?
We had fun putting this kit together for you and we hope you like it, too. Due to the handmade nature of the bags, we aren’t able to offer any more of these kits, once they sell out. (Edit: now sold out. But watch for our Anniversary Kit this summer!) And speaking of the bags, the thing I love about Keri’s bags is that she does excellent work. I’m pretty picky about the way things look and are put together, and she even exceeds my pickiness! She made 250 bags for us, and the last one looks just as awesome as the first.
The kit comes with a skein of Fiesta Baby Boom in a colorway that they dyed up just for us, called “Chocolate Strawberry Ganache”. Baby Boom continues to be one of my favorite yarns for squishy bouncy softness, and I’m glad that Jeannie and Brad were game for dyeing up our Valentine colorway this year. Since we called the kit “Loved by Loopy”, we added a little sticky-note packet for your knitting bag with that title on it. (I use sticky notes by the bucket full when I’m knitting – marking my place, making notes, highlighting areas – am I alone in that?)
Now I’m off to help get these kits out. Tell me what scarf or sock pattern you think you’ll use, so I have some choices to contemplate while I work.
