Designed to alleviate the doldrums and bust you out of any funk you might be in, the Boredom Buster is packaged in a box or bag and contains a special yarn along with a special pattern that will keep your hands and mind busy, during challenging times.
Boredom Buster contents will always include yarn or fiber, an image and instructions (knit or crochet) of what you can make, and other notions, goodies and/or inspiration to keep you going. Projects will be limited in quantity and will change each week or so.
This week we feature the Ossa Shawl kit, designed by Shibui Knits using two of our favourite yarns, Pebble and Silk Cloud. This is a perfect way to try out blending yarns and creating custom fabrics while creating a wardrobe staple shawl or cosy wrap, with sheer stripes and an airy, fluid fabric. Join Barb and Cynthia for a short discussion of the project here.
We've picked a few of our fav colours in brights and neutrals for this promotional kit. See our Shibui collection here for additional colours. You will receive a print copy of the pattern, 2 skeins of Shibui Silk Cloud and 1 skein of Shibui Pebble in coordinating colours, and some little treats to keep you refreshed while making!
You will need a 4.0 mm knitting needle and a tapestry needle for finishing. Blocking is recommended.
