Beach Days KAL
The yarn for this kit is being dyed-to-order and will ship the last week of August.
September 1st – September 30th, 2019
July 12th – 31st: Order the yarn and needles now through July 31st. Everything will arrive in the store (or straight to your doorstep!) with plenty of time for you to cast on by September 1st. When you’re done, we’ll expect to see finished shots of you and your wrap! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, use #woolandhoney hashtag on Instagram or post on our Facebook page.
Help every Thursday: We’ll be devoting our Thursday evening Open Knitting to the Beach Wrap KAL September 1st – 30th-–we’ll be here to help you if you get in a rut or need help navigating the pattern, but primarily it’ll be a chance for us to motivate each other.
15% Discount: the needles AND the yarn. We’ll be knitting ours with Plucky Knitter Leelanau Palette in Primo Fingering, a blend of superwash Merino, cashmere and nylon in a rainbow of our exclusive colorways. Need to order needles? Give us a call at (231) 228-2800 or send us an email–we’ll set you up with what you need.
Prizes: Every single participant who completes their wrap during the time frame will receive a Grocery Girls enamel pin and a copy of Nomadic Knits Magazine No. 4–a $25 value–AND every single participant who completes their wrap will be entered in a drawing to win one Sweater Wedge Bag from Mrs. Brown’s Bags.
Our sample was knit in Pyramid Point (blue), Alligator Hill (green) and Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes (taupe), three of the Plucky Knitter Leelanau Palette, which can only be found at Wool & Honey. We’d love to see one with Wool & Honey, Clay Cliffs and Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes (minty blue, desert pink and taupe), one with Good Harbor, Piping Plover and Thoreson Farm (dark grey, light grey and mustard yellow) and of course, a red-white-and-blue version with M-22, D.H. Day and Manitou!
In the words of the designer…..
“Beach Days is a slow and easy, relaxing knit that is perfect for travel knitting, or when you just need to get lost in a simple project. The combination of two eyelet patterns makes for an easy to memorize knit, and the stripes just make it so fresh, fun and quick to work up. Combine as many colours as your heart desires, and knit this one over and over again. Love mohair? Add it! Got mini skeins? Use ‘em! Let your imagination run wild and make something truly unique.”
