Strike Me Pink! celebrates Mary Poppins, who knows that magic is just beneath the surface of any adventure and who is ready to embrace it with aplomb.
The kit's centerpiece is 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.
This new edition of the kit features brand-new spring color pairings in our House Blend no. 1. The first color pairing is pictured: Petticoat and the light speckle "Carousel." We also have a Victorian-inspired grey, "Ashes of Roses," pairing with Carousel.
There are two types of kits from which to choose. Choose the one you want and customize your options in the menus above. Your kit will arrive beautifully packaged and ready to delight you, in a hard-sided box.
