Celebrate Mary Poppins, who knows that magic is just beneath the surface of any adventure
The centerpiece of our Mary Poppins-inspired kit is Strike Me Pink!,a semi-circular shawl that is a sweet and sentimental nod to Mary Poppins’ iconic umbrella and named with a favorite expression of Mary's, which she said when she was especially pleased.
The two-color shawl is designed by Karalee Harding with umbrella-esque spines, bands of soothing stockinette, whimsical daisy lace, and a knitted-on edging that echoes Mary's jolly parasol. Strike Me Pink! is highly wearable (as the practical Mary would insist upon) and beautifully feminine (as the somewhat vain Mary would also demand). It's an easy knit and perfect for adventurous beginners as well as more advanced knitters.
I'm delighted to offer new shawl sets in the original colorway pair (Carousel and Petticoat) and in brand-new colorways inspired by Mary Poppins Returns.
