A friend unlike any other, the one who understands you and with whom you feel completely at ease.
Anne of Green Gables is a kindred spirit and, for me, so is sock knitting. It's the book and the project I reach for, time and again, when I'm happy, when I'm feeling blue, and when nothing important at all has happened.
The Kindred Spirits sock box is a way to share this feeling of true companionship and happy sock knitting in a regular box of yarn and knitting delight.
The box is inspired by Anne of Green Gables and brings to life a different aspect of Anne's adventures on Prince Edward Island, from her friendship with Diana to her loving relationship with Matthew, and more.
The box is a subscription, so when you sign up, you'll receive a Kindred Spirits sock box every other month. Your box contains:
• A perfect mini-skein pairing of three new colorways. You get two coordinating 50g skeins, plus a 25g heel/toe skein, hand-dyed on House Sock, which is a sproingy, robust fingering weight yarn that's absolutely perfect for socks. The total amount of yarn is 125g (equal to one full skein plus a mini-skein), and it's just the right amount to make a pair of socks that are different colors, yet united with the same color heel and toe.
• Pattern suggestions: We don't include a pattern in the box but, rather, give you ideas of sock designs that look beautiful in this coordinating, non-matching style. (The pictured socks are Joji Locatelli's 2-color socks.)
• A perfectly themed progress marker because I firmly believe you can never have too many progress markers when knitting socks!
• A themed stationery card or postcard, ready for you to send a note of encouragement or support to a friend.
Photos are of the yarn you'll receive with your very first box (since this is a brand new box, I decided to share these particular colors in advance). All future yarn colorways will be a surprise.
Subscriptions are $45 per box. Details on how the subscription is charged are on the second tab above.
The first box ships on October 10.
Subscribers are billed once every two months, and you can cancel at any time. If you leave your subscription in place, you'll get ongoing and wonderful boxes as long as we are making them!
You are billed for your box when you sign up and, thereafter, on the 15th of these months: January, March, May, July, September, and November.* Your box ships about a month later, and we will email you with a heads-up about a week before it ships so you know when to expect it.
Because this is an ongoing subscription, payment is by direct credit card only (processed through the super-secure Stripe service). Unfortunately, we aren't able to accept PayPal for subscriptions at this time.
If you ever want to cancel your subscription, just cancel by the 15th of the month before a box will ship.
*If you already subscribe to Little Stitches, this box is a companion. It arrives on the months that Little Stitches doesn't.
