Celebrate Mary Poppins, who knows that magic is just beneath the surface of any adventure
The centerpiece of our Mary Poppins-inspired kit is Strike Me Pink!,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.
• Yarn & pattern only ($70): You'll receive two skeins of our luxury hand-dyed House Blend no. 1 yarn in colorways chosen to match Mary's optimistic outlook on life:
• Luxe kit ($84):A luxe kit include all of our signature extras to deepen your experience of knitting this beautiful shawl:
Kits do not come with a project bag, but I'm delighted to sew one for you! Choose your size and fabric, and we'll add your new bag to your kit. You can choose the same inspiration as your kit, or choose from 9 inspired fabrics.
Please note: Adding a project bag will add approximately 2 weeks to your shipping timeframe.
That title isn't quite true, as I was endeavoring to quote Mary Poppins herself. There is no "practically" about it. Every element is executed exquisitely, right to the presentation in the box.
I am eager to put the gorgeous yarn on needles to knit up my own shawl, but have to get a few projects off my needles before I can permit myself this luxury. No spoonful of sugar will be needed, I am certain, for thus to go down in a most delightful way!
The 2 yarns go together perfectly and are so very soft !!!!!! I appreciate the care that is put into the packaging as well !!!! Also .the updates as to when it would be sent as it was a pre-order !!!
This kit is truly inspired. The yarn is gorgeous, the two colorways I ordered (Practically Perfect and An Element of Fun) are a perfect match and look stunning together. I enjoy the cute stitch markers and the project bag (shawl size) is absolutely beautiful, the fabric design makes me smile whenever I look at it. So happy with the purchase!
Everything from the yarn to the project bag to the stitch markers are of the highest quality and beautifully packaged.
I love receiving kits from Little Skein! Aside from the yarn (so soft!), my favorites are always the knitting bag and the stitch markers.
