A Pretty Bit of Knitting - Lace Scarf Kits

We have a sign in the mill that sums up our general philosophy on things: Simplify.

It might be living on an old farmstead in Maine, or it might be the Yankee ingenuity in our genes for generations, but everyone from Martha Stewart to the Shakers inspires us to simplify everything we do. It somehow imparts elegance, enjoyment, practicality and purpose in things all at the same time.

We especially enjoy simplicity in our knitting. Beautiful yarn, straight-forward patterning, elegant designs, simple textures, and practical construction are the hallmarks of a truly enjoyable project.
Our lace scarf kits are a one skein, 4 row-repeat pattern that is so easy to remember it's relaxing for an advanced knitter and a perfect introduction to lace for a beginner.
Tucked into one of our hand-knotted Fisherman's Net Bags, the kit includes a pattern and one skein of 90% Nash Island Lambswool / 10% Starcroft Angora hand-dyed yarn. Feedback has been so glowing, we're working on offering this yarn by the skein soon!

Kits are available for sale on the website.

9.15.10 update - We are sold out of lace scarf kits! Check Spruce + Gussy in Bar Harbor. The NEW Nash Island Fog Yarn (the same lambswool/angora blend in the kits) will be available online soon!
