Designed to alleviate the doldrums and bust you out of any funk you might be in, the Boredom Buster Box contains a special yarn along with a special pattern that will keep your hands and mind busy, during challenging times.
Contents will always include yarn or fiber, an image and instructions (knit or crochet) of what you can make, and other notions, goodies and inspiration to keep you going. Projects will be limited in quantity and will change each week or so.
This week we feature, the Crossbody Bag pattern, a crochet project designed by Churchmouse Yarns and Tea. You will receive an electronic download of the pattern by email, retail value $11, with your purchase of this boxed kit. Inside the kit, you will find two balls of Schoppel El Linio, a beautiful 100% linen chainette yarn, retail value of $32. The shadow painting on this yarn provides a tonal variegation, which adds depth to finished pieces. This kit includes one ball of black and one ball of white to make a graphic black and white version of the colour blocked bag shown below. Your Boredom Buster box will also include special treats to keep you motivated! Retail value - priceless!
