THE LILAC BUS Book club & yarn kit

Regular price $ 26.00

Our second book club of 2019 will be The Lilac Bus by Maeve Binchy. We decided the month of March warranted an Irish author so we went with our favorite, though Ulysses by James Joyce was a close second (NOT). Our inspiration yarn is a delicate variegated ode to SPRING! Light pastel pops of color on a natural yarn background. We have chosen a knitting pattern that works well with variegated yarns. There is enough stitchwork to keep you interested but not enough to detract from the beauty of the variegation. The pattern allows the yarn to shine and be the star of the show. If, like us, you prefer a bigger shawl, the pattern is easily adaptable to a larger size. IF that is the case you might want to purchase 2 skeins or you could add a contrasting color from your stash.

As with all our book clubs there are several options to choose from this listing. You can buy just the yarn, buy the yarn and the pattern, the yarn and bag (bag will be a mystery until you receive your package but will be one of our standard wedge bags), the yarn, bag and pattern, the yarn, bag and extras, of Just Give Me It ALL.

Our extras will consist of 4 mystery items that will fit the theme of the book. Extras from past book clubs have included candles, enamel pins, book marks, and other little nick nack types.

This listing is a ***PREORDER*** and will ship by the end of March.

Bag measurements will be 12.5" wide, 10.5" tall & 6" deep.

Our yarns are hand dyed or hand painted using professional acid dyes. We wash each skein carefully after dying but slight bleeding may occur during first wash. Skeins may vary in color slightly so if using more than one skein of yarn in a project, please alternate skeins every few rows.

Care of yarn - superwash merino will allow you to wash your items in the washing machine but please use cold water. For best results and care, hand washing is recommended.
