A powerful story transformed into a beautiful shawl
To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the stories of my heart: complex, rich and full of uncomfortable truths. I am honored to partner with knitwear designer Helen Stewart to bring this powerful story to life in an incomparably beautiful shawl.
The book's message of compassion and courage is reflected in the evocative cables and leaf lace, which bring to life the Knot Hole Tree where Scout and Jem found unexpected treasure.
Kit options include:
• Yarn & pattern only ($72): You'll receive two skeins of yarn expertly dyed for us by Duck Duck Wool in the colorways Mockingbird and Knot Hole Tree, which are the colors used in the sample shawl. The base is our luxury House Blend no. 2
• Luxe kit ($106):A luxe kit include all of our signature extras to deepen your experience of knitting this beautiful shawl:
I love all of Little Skein’s kits. They are so lovelingly assembled with an eye for the smallest of details!
Another wonderful kit which leaves nothing to be desired. The yarn is gorgeous, the colors being even more beautiful than I had expected, and everything else, from the beautiful project bag(s) to the cute little extras (the bookmark! the card!) is an inspired tribute to one of the most memorable books I have read so far. I'm absolutely in love with the shawl design and I'm full of admiration for Anne's talent to evoke the spirit of great stories in her kits and the love and thoughtfulness she puts into creating them. So happy with my purchase.
I've ordered many of Anne's Luxe Kits over the years, and she never fails to disappoint. The bags are beautiful and sturdy, the stitch markers are well made, and she partners with wonderful dyers, designers, and other vendors to curate collections that really do set the gold standard for knitting kits. I especially loved the mockingbird fabric available for this kit, and the yarn and design work so wonderfully together.
I ordered mine with Dignity as the solid colorway instead of Knothole Tree, and the color is a little closer to wine than raspberry than I thought it would be, but that's not a complaint. The Calpurnia's Balm smells delicious and feels amazing on the hands. And in spite of not being much of a card-writer, I loved the card with the illustration of Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch. It's posted over my desk in a spot where I can see it often. I'm a fan of his and of the book and film anyhow, but even if I weren't, this is a true piece of art. Everything in the kit was perfect and useful and entirely worth waiting for. Could not recommend more highly.
Such a delight to open the package from Anne. The yarn is beautiful and all the other items are perfect. The card is so unique as well as the markers. And the bag is fantastic! Lovely art work. Cute pin and the bookmark is so special! And the balm smells so good and is theme related. I appreciate the time and thought that went into planning this kit. Made me so feel so special to look at each item. It was better than I imagined. Totally the BEST!!!! Brought me so much happiness and it continues to do so.THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I love EVERYTHING!
