Sun & Fog sampler kit

Sampler kits are a preorder and will ship at the end of February, and sooner if I can.

Maybe, like me, you find the ocean to be your happy place. A beach, cool sand, rhythmic ocean waves: these sounds and sights calm me like nothing else. I am so lucky to live in San Francisco, a few miles from the ocean and that magical intersection of sea, sky, sun, and fog that is Northern California.

This collection of knitwear designs is the combined talent of 9 Bay Area designers and 9 yarn dyers and local yarn shops who, together, represent our San Francisco ethos that art is powerful and justice and equality are critical.

A special kind of kit

Each of the dyers involved have created their own kits (and I also have kits for the Undulation Mitts by Ksneia Naidyon, my paired designer), but I was inspired to create something a bit larger too. I created new colorways and pulled older formulas from my formula box to evoke my own feelings of calm, soothing waves and comforting fog.

 These sampler kits are a way to experience the whole collection. They include:

  • Two skeins of yarn in your choice of colorway(s) and base (see below for suggestions on which designs pair the best with each base)
  • Three patterns, so that you can knit a project or two with kit yarn and a projectfrom stash
  • A bar of ocean-themed Tuft Woolens wool wash (the most eco-friendly way to wash your knits)
  • Moss Spell progress marker, handmade by me with foraged moss from my very own back yard
  • Set of Big Sur stitch markers

As always, your kit comes beautifully packaged as a gift to yourself.

Choosing a yarn base

Dream Sock is my extra-fine merino wool and nylon blend yarn, and is a true fingering weight. It will work best for:

Merino DK works best for the cowls in the collection:
