Build your own kit


Take Time to Knit from the Take Time Series. This design features sheep, a spinning wheel, and knitted goodies of all varieties: hats, mittens, sweaters, scarves, and more. Perfect craft room decor. The afghan in the top right corner is the highlight of the piece – it is literally knitted with your needle and thread, and tacked into place – don’t worry, there are good instructions!

The sampler contains 18 boxes, done in a palette of over-dyed silks. Many “specialty” stitches are used – there are diagrams and written instructions for all of them, making this design approachable – if you have patience (and Google), your initial skill level with specialty stitches will not be important.
