It’s May! We are starting something new this month, with the introduction of monthly kits and notions. We’ll have them for you the first Monday of the month, and that starts today.
May Knit Kit – How many of you loved Charlotte’s Web when you were growing up? I bought a copy at my school’s book fair and it was my first real chapter book that I read on my own. It has always been a favorite. This month’s kit is a Charlotte’s Web celebration! Tanis Gray designed these adorable mittens for Charlotte and Wilbur and we have paired it with three different color combinations (option one, option two, option three) in The Uncommon Thread’s Merino DK. Each kit contains a skein of each of the two colors, plus a pdf copy of the pattern. (You can also purchase a lot of pdf’s for Tanis’s patterns here individually.)
May Sewing Kit – This month, we have the Double Baked Apron Kit for you! Each kit comes with the pattern and the material needed to make it. Perfect for a quick Mother’s Day or Birthday gift for your favorite someone. (Fabrics will vary, but the Loopy Sewing Elves picked all beautiful ones!)
May Scissors – We are so looking forward to bringing you a different scissor each month, and this month we have a happy pink Flower Power scissor ready for you. Perfect, since April showers bring May flowers, right? (Why monthly? Because several of us around here want to collect them all, and getting one a month seemed do-able…)
May Needle Minder – To round out the monthly offerings, we have the first of many monthly Needle Minders for you. This month you get the Lilies of the Valley, also celebrating May flowers. You will love keeping this magnetized to your project bag (or, if you’re like me, sticking to the lamp post that you knit by). Your darning needle attaches to it, your scissors attach to it, and even some of your stitch markers will probably attach to it. It’s a beautiful way to keep things organized. (Ditto on collecting one a month. See above.)
Who needs multiple scissors? Um, everybody? 🙂 I love scissors and often look for old ones in antique shops when I’m out and about. Those old ones don’t usually cut very well, but they are pretty in a display. I keep this old Flower Frog on the antique table next to where I knit. Looks like I will be needing another one to handle all of the new styles I’ll be adding. (Flower Frogs were used at the bottom of vases for helping to hold the flower stems in place. This style is glass and comes in different sizes.)
Thanks for shopping through the new monthly kits and notions! Also, watch your in-box for our Camp Loopy email, heading out to all of our monthly email newsletter subscribers later this week! We’ll have the info up on Thursday’s blog, too.
