    These kits are a preorder and will ship in 3 to 4 weeks -- sooner if we can!

    The Salutations kit is an homage to the sweet and moving story of Charlotte's Web, where a humble, terrific and radiant spring pig makes a true friend in Charlotte, grows up, and learns how to say goodbye. The kit features a host of artisan knitting supplies, each one a unique find, and gathered with the purpose of delighting you, as you read, knit and remember this timeless story.

    The Love of Spiders shawl is the centerpiece of the kit. The delicate spiderweb lines are made with slipped stitches, as is the two-color section meant to evoke Charlotte’s 514 children ballooning in the wind. This creates a beautiful stitch pattern without the need to work two strands of yarn at a time. It's easy knitting – perfect for beginners – and it's interesting knitting – entertaining for more advanced knitters. (To knit the multi-colored version shown in the last photos, you'll need a kit with Charlotte & Spider Web as your main color and coordinating color, plus a set of mini-skeins.)

    There are three types of kits, with something at all price points. 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.

  • I am delighted to introduce you to the artists involved with the Salutations kit and collection:

    Knitwear designer Melanie Berg created The Love of Spiders pattern for the Salutations kit. Melanie is one of the most versatile knitwear designers today. She creates addictive, colorful (and easy to knit!) accessories as well as beautifully-fitting sweaters and garments.

    Sunshine Yarns created a six-color mix and match Charlotte palette on luxury fingering weight yarn. Dani at Sunshine Yarns is one of my favorite dyers, with an ability to bring the natural world to life on beautiful, squishy, must-touch-it-now yarn!

    Artist and hand-letterer Jayme Hennel of the Hennel Paper Company and I have worked together before and I love Jayme's whimsical, clean and modern style. She brought Charlotte, Wilbur and everyone from the Barn to life in a way that perfectly matches how I see them in my mind. (She also drew the only spider I am thrilled to see, over and over!)

    Barruntando ceramics studio in Aviles, Spain created the Flock yarn bowl for this collection in their distinctive and delicate style. See their other handmade ceramic creations at their online shop.

    Tuft Woolens created a farm-fresh soap, inspired by Wilbur's buttermilk bath, just for this kit. I've been a fan of Martha's soaps and wool washes for a while and her creation simply ties the whole kit together!

    and me, Anne of Little Skein in the Big Wool. I'm the official curator of the Salutations kit -- I brought everything together and shared ideas with each of the artists so the kit would be a cohesive whole, created the stitch markers, project bags, greeting cards, and notepads.

    We hope you love our creations!
