Something new for all you lovely readers today. As my knitting expertise (a term to be used loosely) is advancing, I have been really obsessed with finding knitting kits. Why, you ask? Simply put: they’re convenient and, as we have learned, I am all about convenience.
I like kitting kits, because they come with instructions and yarn, and sometimes even knitting needles. Okay, I’ll grant you that sometimes it is just as easy to find a free knitting pattern online, but there comes a time when I’ve run out of usable yarn or nothing I find online seems like an appealing project. So I buy a kit. Plus they make great gifts (think about it).
They’re pretty handy. You see a picture of something cute and it’s all included inside a nice little box. Most recently, I’ve picked up this cute little Knitwhits Flore Hat Kit in bluebell. It looks like an adorable little flower and I know it’ll be perfect for my niece. The kit comes with enough yarn to make almost any size hat, but when I picked it up I knew that it would be great for an 8 year-old girl. The instructions are explained really simply, so that even a novice like myself can understand what to do. But, I did find this awesome video with tips on getting it done, if you are more of a visual learner.
I’m really happy with how it’s coming along. Even though the stitches are a little more advanced for me, they have been very easy to get a handle of. And yes, this kit comes in two other colors: Tulip and Eggplant.Print This Post
