Time Traveler shawl kit (Viola yarn)

  • Journey into the wild with a full-hearted story and an inspired knit.

    The Time Traveler shawl kit is inspired by the novel Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, a marvelous story of being swept back in time 200 years to find another life and adventure. It features luxurious and inspired yarn, artist-illustrated fabric, and the kind of inspired knitting treasures for which Little Skein is known.

    The centerpiece of the kit is the shawl: Into the Wild, an asymmetrical triangle and knit on the bias. It was created to make the most of your favorite yarn, whether it’s solid, hand-dyed, variegated, or tonal.

    Choose a yarn and pattern only kit, or a luxe version.

    Luxe kits include:

    Ÿ~ ŸPDF pattern: You'll be able to immediately download your pattern PDF and, when your kit ships, we'll include a code to put the pattern in your Ravelry library.

    ~ 2 skeins of luxury yarn: You'll receive two skeins of the amazingly subtle “Time Traveller” grey created by Emily Foden of Viola yarn exclusively for our shop. This will enable you to knit the shawl, as pictured.

    ~ SEWN TO ORDER Project bag in a custom-illustrated fabric: We commissioned the wonderful @woollythistle (on Instagram) to create gorgeously subtle Outlander- and knit-inspired drawings. Choose your favorite style of project bag, and your favorite version of the print, and we'll sew your project bag to order. Please note:
    - A drawstring bag is included in the base kit price, but you can upgrade to any size.
    - Your project bag ships separately, in approximately 2 to 4 weeks, as it is sewn-to-order.

    ~ Claire's Chamomile hand balm, created by the talented Tuft Woolens.

    ~ Apothecary candle: At Castle Leoch, Claire begins work in the old surgery of Davie Beaton, where she finds all sorts of odd things, both useful and useless. This lovely 4 oz. scented soy candle, with a variety of entomology designs on the lid, reminds me of Beaton's surgery and how Claire might have to used candles to brighten it -- and the scents to freshen it. You'll receive a random entomology design and surprise fall scent (think of: Pumpkin Spice, Spice Pear, Cinnamon Stick).

    ~ Inspired stitch markers: You'll receive a surprise set of our Outlander-inspired stitch markers. If you have a favorite, just let me know in the notes section of your order.

    ~ Jacobite Thistle greeting card: I am a fan of old-fashioned cards, and often use them to send a note of greeting or support to knitting friends. I've found a beautiful Arts and Crafts-inspired thistle card to add to your kit and encourage you, too, to send a note of friendship to someone in your life.

  • Your kit will come to you in two packages. Your yarn, pattern, and all the trimmings are ready to ship -- but please give us 3 to 4 days to get your order boxed, double-checked, and into the mail. When a kit launches, we generally get a lot of orders at once, and it takes a bit of time to get all of properly packed and safely on their way.

    Your project bag will follow in a second shipment in approximately 2 to 4 weeks. We have sewn a fairly large number of project bags in advance, but I love to offer choices (and we have so many lovely favorite options for this collection!) that sewn-to-order is the only practical way to go.

  • Your Little Skein kit directly supports working artists. We provide fair-pay commissions and licensing to the artists with whom we work, and I strive to highlight and present these unique talents to new audiences.

    The Time Traveler kit includes the artistry of:

    Emily Foden, hand-dyer behind Viola yarn.
    Tjitske Kamphuis, known as @woollythistle on Instagram, a lovely visual artist and designer
    ZandCo, small-batch artisan candlemaker
    Tuft Woolens, small-batch artisan soapmaker
    Cindy Lindgren, a visual artist working in a modern Craftsman style

Time Traveler Shawl Kit

What a delight it was to receive this kit in the mail! I loved the way everything was packaged and presented, coordinating with the kit's theme. The yarn and pattern are just lovely, as are the stitch markers. The project bag is the perfect addition to this kit. I hope there will be more Outlander kits in the future!
