Paintbox Wrap kit | one-of-a-kind sets

There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.
–Jane Austen

Sometimes, all you need to feel delightfully happy are the comforts of being at home and a soothing knitting project.

Paintbox Wrap is all of these things: simple, easy knitting, delightful color changes, and the perfect shape to wrap around yourself for warmth and color.

Inspired by Jane Austen and her ability to take ordinary life and make it extraordinary, the wrap is a simple shape: a rectangle knit on the bias to form a parallelogram. The stitches are simple, as well. Ordinary increases, decreases and yarn-overs create a gently waving lace pattern inspired by some of Jane's own needlework, separated by bands of garter stitch.

With a colorful set of mini-skeins and your favorite neutral, Paintbox becomes a satisfyingly complex project, full of color and style—like Jane’s deceptively domestic novels, where there is so much more than meets the eye.

Your kit includes all the yarn you need to make Paintbox in one-of-a-kind color sets, hand-chosen just for this project. You'll receive

Better than the Book!

Presentation, presentation, presentation! I tracked the package with anticipation and greeted its arrival with glee (truly, with glee!). First fun thing, a little skein sticker on the mailing box to confirm it was what I was waiting for...on opening the box, my eyes were presented with teal tissue paper enclosing my special purchase. Carefully, I opened the tissue to reveal a postcard sized picture of the completed product directing me to the pattern, a lovely Pride and Prejudice note card (that went right into my card stash) and the yarn!!! It is all that I had hoped for and more. I purchased Set 002 and the colors are rich and deep and soft and elegant. I was going away for the weekend, but the entire box was popped right into my suitcase, I could not leave it behind. The main color was wound that evening and I began. I am looking forward to showing off my wrap soon, stay tuned! I will also be shopping at little skein in the big wool again soon.

So Beautiful!

This kit is stunning! I purchased Set 001 and love, love, love the colors and the wonderfully soft wool!
