Preorders have now closed. Thanks so much for your support of this lovely kit!


    A shawl that sparks your memories of friendship, childhood and love.

    The Hundred Acre Wood is a place of friendship, adventures and simple pleasures, like a jar full of honey. Designer Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade has infused some of that sweetness into the Hundred Acre Wood shawl, created just for this kit and with gentle nods to the beloved childhood story of Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne.

    This brand new Little Skein kit features an exclusive yarn palette, original illustrations that we commissioned for the fabric project bags, and themed treasures.

    There are kit bundles at all price points, so choose your kit, customize your options, and let us make something truly special for you. Your kit will arrive beautifully packaged and ready to delight you, in a hard-sided box.

    Please note: this listing is for a preordered kit where you select precisely the options you want, and your kit ships in approximately 4 weeks. If you are flexible on colors, you may wish to choose from our remaining stock of ready-to-ship kits.

  • I am delighted to introduce you to the wonderful makers who collaborated with me to create the Hundred Acre Wood kit.

    Designer Helen Stewart of the Curious Handmade podcast created the centerpiece of the collection, the Hundred Acre Wood shawl. She’s known for her feminine and beautifully-wearable accessory designs that are soothing and relaxing to knit.

    Hand-dyer Anne Podlesak of Wooly Wonka Fibers created and hand-dyed the scrumptious yarn palette in her studio in New Mexico. The gradient color set is a work of art, with underwashes of common colors and gently shifting hues from raisin-brown purple to forest green.

    Artist Chamisa Kellogg created the original illustrations that became the fabric in the kit’s project bag, and which pepper the entire kit. Chamisa’s style evokes the very best of childhood: the dreamy sense that something wonderful is always right around the corner.

    Also in the collection are treasures from some of my favorite makers:
    The Nome Knitter | Honeycomb progress keeper
    Tuft Woolens | Honeybee hand lotion & lip balm
    Handmades by Olivia | hand-embroidered zipper pouch
    Leslie Wind, jewelry artist | Kindred Spirits shawl pin
    Perfect Paperie | Love of Honey bookmarks
    Preserved maple leaves

    and me, Anne of Little Skein in the Big Wool. I'm the curator of the Hundred Acre Wood kit: I bring everything together and share ideas with each of the artists so the kit becomes a cohesive whole. I create the stitch markers, sew the project bags (with our team) and hand-pack each order.

    We hope you love our creations!
