I am delighted to bring back one of my favorite kits, Green Gables, in a special holiday edition.
Christmas at Green Gables features the perfectly Anne-inspired shawl, Balsam Hollow, which Paula Emons-Fuessle of the Knitting Pipeline created for my original Green Gables kit, with a brand new set of colors created by Leading Men Fiber Arts for the holiday version.
With a slight twist to the design, this kit offers a speckled main color (Christmas at Green Gables) and a coordinating edging color in your choice of Winter Shrubbery (a cool green) or Vintage Sleigh Ride (a beautifully vintage oxidized orange). This duo of colors are hand-dyed by Leading Men Fiber Arts on their squishy, warm, sportweight Callback base. The shades perfectly evoke the snowy, vintage landscape of Prince Edward Island.
If you've knit Balsam Hollow in one of the original Anne colors, you'll want another one in this special, two-color edition. And, if you missed out on the original Green Gables kit, you'll be thrilled by this new interpretation!
