I am delighted to be able to finally announce the details of the limited edition shawl kit that we are doing with the talented Asa Tricosa!
The design of Ifigenia makes me excited every time I look at it – it’s such an interesting shape, and looks like it will be a lot of fun to knit. And it’s beaded!!! I honestly can’t wait to start one of my own.
The yarn for the kits is being dyed this week by Tony, and we have decided to use my favourite lace weight yarn, Sylvia 2ply. It is the perfect shawl yarn, in my biased opinion! It has such good drape and a lovely sheen, and works well with beads.
We will initially be offering 100 kits, with the possibility of doing a few more if needed. You will be buying the yarn from us, and the cost of the pattern will be included in the kit price. You will then receive a voucher from Asa so that you can download the pattern from Ravelry.
The price of the kit is £15.00, plus £2.00 postage (for everyone). The only thing not included in that price is the beads – we decided that it would be better to allow you to select your own beads, since some people like to use complimentary coloured beads, and some prefer a contrast. There is also provision in the pattern for not using beads, if you would prefer not to.
The kits will be available in a special shop update on Wednesday July 20th at 8pm (GMT+1). There will be the usual shop preview beforehand, so you can browse the selection of colourways. Tony is dyeing them in batches of 5, so they are limited editions.
