Mother’s Day Kits!

We’re taking you to the beach with this year’s Mother’s Day Kits! It all started with fabric that cracked us up, featuring beach babes made out of fruit. 🙂 We had Karen at Blue Tulips make up the beautiful project bags for us (and she started sewing back in December, so you know we’ve been planning this for a long time!) The bags are fully lined and have a clear vinyl pocket on the inside, for accessories. The bottom is square for easier sitting, and it’s about 9″ tall with a drawstring closure.

Jill at Studio June dyed up her wonderful Super Cash Sock yarn base (80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon) in this limited edition “Beach Glass” colorway. There are 435 yds. in this skein of fingering weight yarn, so it would be perfect knit up into socks or a scarf or a cute one-skein shawlette.

To round it out, we added in a flower tape measure, because everyone needs a flower on their special day. And we liked how the pull at the end of the tape measure is a leaf.

Whether you buy it for yourself or someone you love, we hope you enjoy this little beach vacation kit. You can get your kits here, while they last.

  1. Awww, they’re adorable! You come up with the most wonderfully creative ideas…. I saw the sun for a few minutes this morning here in KC, so maybe it’ll peek out again on your side this afternoon….!

  2. Sun? Is THAT what that yellow glowing thing was? I couldn’t remember!

    I love that kit! The bags make me giggle, just adorable! See you tomorrow! BFF Liz and I might actually get out close to on time tomorrow.

  3. I got a great selection of knitting & crochet books for my anniversary. Maybe I’ll get an adorable beach kit for Mother’s Day… That bag is way too cute. If the hubby doesn’t get the hint, I can always get it myself. 🙂

  4. I love the yarn, but unfortunately cannot justify buying any of the rest. I’m trying to decide what skeins to buy for my blanket project. I wish more Claudia Hand Paint would just miraculously pop into your stock!

  5. I couldn’t resist. I’m a Beach Baby and I’ve been looking for another sock project bag. Perfect! (My mother’s day present to myself, and as you say, “Sock Yarns Don’t Count as Stash!”)

  6. Not a mother but bought the kit. My mother will get the bag, I think I will keep the rest or at least the yarn, love that.

  7. I just got my “Mother’s Day” kit….ordered on Wed. the 27th… it in less than 48 hours 🙂 I love this kit !!!!!

  8. Brilliant! Just ordered a kit for my mom! (& added one to my wishlist, & emailed the link to dh who always needs a little hint 🙂

  9. Just ordered the mother’s day kit and oh by the way I am also a nurse. Double the fun. Love your web site

  10. I had to run right over to the Loopy Ewe site and ordered mine. Done! Sheri you are so inspiring and the staff at LE is so wonderful. Thanks for everything!
