My Favorite Things Knit Cowl Kit
These are a few of my favorite things...
One of my favorite movies growing up was The Sound of Music. I would watch it every afternoon after school. I had the entire movie memorized and could probably still recite it back to you to this day.
I've teamed up with Lina from Lina Knits to create this amazing kit inspired by the movie! Lina designed a really cool cowl that is made up of her favorite stitch patterns featuring some colorways inspired by some of my favorite scenes from the movie.
Each kit comes with the pattern, (1) 50g skein of "Abbey Grey", and (5) 10g skeins of the following colorways. The pattern will be automatically emailed to you, so please make sure you enter the correct email during checkout.
I always loved the dress Maria wore when she and Captain Von Trapp finally admitted that they loved each other in the gazebo. This colorway is inspired by that dress! It is a semi-solid in different shades of turquoise.
"Raindrops On Roses"
...and whiskers on kittens! This unique speckled colorway has a soft pink base and blue speckles.
The only scene in the movie that brings tears to my eyes is the one when Captain Von Trapp sings about his homeland's flower with daughter Liesl. The hardy flower has white petals that appear woolly with an orange and yellow center and is the inspiration for this speckled colorway.
Another one of my favorite scenes is when The Baroness is having a drink with Max Detweiler while Captain Von Trapp tells the children he's marrying The Baroness. I never understood what was meant by "extra lemonade" but now as an adult I get it. Not sure why it was my favorite scene... Anyway -- this hand painted colorway has bright pink fading into brilliant lemon yellow, reminiscent of pink lemonade.
"Climb Every Mountain"
Ahhh the final scene. When they escape the Nazis and climb over the Alps into Switzerland to freedom. Another classic scene and the inspiration for the final colorway -- Climb Every Mountain. This semi-solid colorway has various shades of purple with the occasional spot of white for the clouds.
This kit is available on Tough Mom, a beautiful yet sturdy yarn! It is 75% Superwash Wool and 25% Nylon. The wool is sourced from farms that follow quality animal husbandry and environmental practices. No animals are injured as the mill only uses shorn wool or wool that has shed naturally from the animal.
Care: Machine wash cool separately, though hand washing is recommended; line dry.
