Edited to Add on Oct. 9th, 2014: Anne Vally has added one skein of the Anne's Story fingering weight yarn to the prize package!! So an additional $32 skein of Anne's Story included with the Luxe Kit!!! Thank you, Anne, for upping the ante!


Hi, Knitters,
I am here today with a fantastic giveaway for you! I am so excited to be part of the team that gets to promote and host a giveaway for the newest Little Skein kit, Green Gables. I was lucky enough to be in Maine with Paula Emons-Fuessle, the designer of the shawl Balsam Hollow for the Green Gables kit, on the day the kit debuted and was released for sales. The kits are still available for purchase now but the initial kits sold out in literally a couple of minutes! It was so exciting to witness when we were together in Maine. Paula and Anne are rock stars for sure.

Anne Vally, the creative force behind the ultra-successful Little Skein in the Big Wool brand sent the kit preview along with four sample shawls knit in the yarn color choices for the kit. The entire kit is breathtaking. Anne goes all out and that's why her kits are so incredibly special.

Here are some links for you to enjoy:

Paula Emons-Fuessle of the Knitting Pipeline podcast! She's the designer of the gorgeous shawl.



Little Skein in the Big Wool Etsy shop! You can purchase all of the kit pieces separately and together in different forms. If you are thinking of a knitting-related gift for the holiday season, any part of the kit would make a great gift.

Knitalong with Littleskein group on Ravelry! I'm a member ~ come join us.

It's hard to imagine the amount of work and thoughtfulness and love Anne pours into her kits. She is really something. So today I am giving away to one lucky blog reader the Luxe Kit! Thank you to Anne Vally for the generous giveaway opportunity.


Here is Anne Vally's description of the Luxe kit:

The LUXE Green Gables shawl kit features everything you need to make "Balsam Hollow," a new (and exclusive to Little Skein) shawl design from Paula Emons-Fuessle of the Knitting Pipeline and inspired by Anne of Green Gables, and to truly reminisce about the optimistic and enchanting Anne Shirley and her forever home on Prince Edward Island.

Your LUXE kit includes:

  • A PDF copy of Balsam Hollow, a beautiful new shawl design from Paula Emons-Fuessle (you will receive download instructions after placing your order)
  • Two 100g skeins of Leading Men Fiber Arts' Marquee yarn in the exclusive Green Gables palette colorway of your choice, which is ample yarn to knit either the standard size or the extended size of this beautiful shawl
  • A project bag in your choice of style: drawstring bag (suitable for 1 to 2 skein projects) or a larger zippered project bag (ideal for 2 to 3 skein projects)
  • A Canadian Girl stitch markers (with either the Anne master marker or Canadian Maple leaf)
  • Autumn Leaves impatient knitter tag
  • A surprise sweet treat and all of Little Skein's signature special packaging



The yarn for the kit is custom-dyed by Leading Men Fiber Arts.


There are four options plus an added variegated sock yarn (click here to see this one, I had to order my own it's so pretty!).  The colors are gorgeous and autumnal. I have the Green Gables color and I'm getting the Anne with an E color sent to me. I am going to cast on Paula's Balsam Hollow shawl very soon! It will be good retreat and travel knitting for me coming up.

Here is the description of the beautiful yarn from Anne Vally:

About your yarn:

Leading Men Fiber Arts' Callback base is a round and bouncy 3-ply superwash merino wool. It absorbs color beautifully and is rich, saturated, and glowing. This yarn is the perfect sportweight blend and creates a drapey yet warm fabric.
The palette of available colors evoke autumn on Prince Edward Island -- the luscious green leaves of Green Gables; the evergreens of Orchard Slope, the sloping area between Anne's home at Green Gables and Diana Barry's farm; spooky purples and dusky evening colors of the Haunted Wood; and of course, Anne's beautiful red hair.
Dyer: Leading Men Fiber Arts
Base: Callback sportweight
Colorways: Green Gables, Anne with an E, Orchard Slope, or The Haunted Wood
Fiber content: 100% superwash merino
Yardage: 328 yards per 100 grams
The Anne palette of colors is available exclusively from Little Skein in the Big Wool.




You get to choose between two bag options. Both are so beautifully handcrafted. The zipper bag is a little bigger and the drawstring bag (the one I have) is just right for a skein or two plus your project. Anne designs her own fabrics. The lining is as intriguing as the outer fabric. I think this is my favorite fabric design yet from Anne. The leaf motif with Anne of Green Gables outline in the big maple leaf is one of the best details ever. I LOVE this bag!

Here is Anne Vally's description of the bags:

About your project bag:

Prince Edward Island project bags are handcrafted from original fabrics, created by me, exclusively for the Green Gables kit.
The fabric features hand-painted watercolors from Polish artist Agnieska Swiejkowska and adapted by me to create a portrait of leaves and the natural world in beautiful autumnal colors, with a wistful silhouette of Anne Shirley. The exterior fabric has been digitally-printed for me on my favorite blend of cotton-linen fabric, which is wonderfully durable and has a slight nubbly rustic texture to it. For the zippered project bags, I've upsized the design to create a larger motif of Anne, and the drawstring bag's fabric is likewise sized to that particular design.
The interior fabric for Prince Edward Island is a warm autumn green, featuring some of my favorite quotes from this classic heroine, like secret and optimistic messages from Anne to you.
My drawstring bags have been sized for 1 to 2 skein projects, and my shawl-sized zipper bags are quite roomy and are sized to fit 2 to 3 skeins of yarn and your work in progress.

The Little Skein stitch markers have long been one of my favorites. They are so well-made and pretty. In the Luxe kit you win a set of markers and the choice of one of two charms. Here is Anne Vally's description of the stitch markers:
{ ABOUT YOUR STITCH MARKERS }
You'll receive a set of 8 stitch markers with a master marker of either the Anne silhouette or a Canadian maple leaf. Let me know in the notes section of your order if you have a preference; otherwise I'll surprise you!


Paula picked a leaf motif because trees play such a big role in the setting for Anne of Green Gables. It's perfect. The shawl is so simple, triangle shaped garter stitch with a simple leaf lace motif at the border. A first time lace knitter could knit this shawl. It is lovely. There are two sizes, the original and then one with an extended lace section. Great work, Paula! I love the way the shawl design ties in with the bag and stitch markers and yarn. 

Leslie Wind also contributed and designed the most beautiful shawl pin I have ever seen to go along with the kit. It is a simple leaf shape and it is effective and stunning. The leaf silhouette shawl pin is called Kindred Spirit. It is light as air and a real piece of art.

The shawl pin is NOT included in today's giveaway but you may want to order one to go with your gorgeous new shawl. I have one and I can't wait to wear it all together, and carry my bag while using my stitch markers and knitting my Anne's Story sock yarn...... while reading my new Anne of Green Gables book!




Anne's patterns are always beautifully photographed and have a clear and easy to follow layout. The pattern for the Balsam Hollow shawl has been tech edited and test knit. 

The other part of the Green Gables kit is the #annealong that is running from September 23 to December 21st! You'll want to join because it is so simple to enter and there will be fantastic prizes along the way with a big grand prize given at the end. Here are the Grand Prize details......

And: the grand prize is totally awesome, and it will be announced on December 22. 
At the end of the #annealong, on December 22, I’ll choose a grand prize winner who will receive the NEXT Little Skein kit which will be released in January and features a new (upcoming) shawl design from Susan B. Anderson and two skeins of Plucky Knitter yarn.

Yes, that's me! You get the chance to win my upcoming new kit with Little Skein!!! It is going to be spectacular and fun. And yes, the yarn is exclusively dyed for the kit by the Plucky Knitter. You'll want to try to win this one so enter the #annealong by posting anything Green Gables related along with the hashtag. It's so simple!

The #annealong is a wide open -along that includes not only knitting Paula's shawl but also reading, sharing a photo, starting an Anne Shirley-related or inspired project.... well, here is Anne Vally's great description of the #annealong:

Okay, Anne. Goodness, where does one start?! I remember watching Anne of Green Gables at my Sunday school teachers house. My teachers name was Shirley and she was just the nicest grandma type person. The movies made a huge impression on me. I actually ordered the new pretty book to start reading with my boys. I can't wait to pass on this story to them! Rav ID knittedwit

I read Anne of Green Gables as a girl and rediscovered it a couple of summers ago. At the same time I was mentoring a passionate, optimistic redhead much like Anne, and I mistakenly called her Anne a few times. I love the pattern and Anne's profile in the leaf on the fabric!

Great giveaway.

I first started reading Anne of Green Gables in middle school. The series I really love is Little House on the Prairie but in middle school, I thought myself too "old" for those books, so my mom gave me her Green Gables series and the rest is history. I think that series really cemented my love for reading. I should pick them up again. It's been a while.

I also adore Paula's podcast and can't wait to start the knit-a-long!

I have a special place in my heart for Anne, my Grandpa grew up on PEI and as the story goes, knew LM Montgomery or lived close by at one point in his life. Believe it or not, I have never been to PEI, but it is on my bucket list. Who wouldn't have it on theirs after hearing Anne describe her first impressions? little Skein and Paula and Leading Men have really captured the spirit of the stories- spirited, crisp and full of heart.

I love this! Like many, they were among my favorite books as a child. My husband and I spent time on PEI during our honeymoon and got to visit the house of L.M. Montgomery. Now it is my daughter who is getting ready to start reading the series.

Well, my grandmother used to visit Lucy Maude Montgomery when she was living and writing in the Anne of Green Gables house. She was born and raised in PEI although she did not return after leaving to begin a teaching career. I love the bag, the wool, the pattern, I just think this is a most wonderful giveaway!

I absolutely love this idea for a kit. I retired as a grade school librarian and then from a public library...I love when kits tie into a literary theme! As always I love Paula's design and the project bag is darling. Would absolutely love be able to do this one for my DIL. Thank you again for a lovely idea!

The yarn colors are so beautiful, but I am truly in love with the project bags, what a creative endeavor that is. Absolutely love them!

I have seen and heard about this kit and KAL on several podcasts. I would love to win it and gift it to my sister who also knits. Her favorite books as a child were Anne of Green Gables. I enjoyed them as well but my sister especially did.

I loved reading the Anne of Green Gables books as a child, so when I was in Eastern Canada on vacation I HAD to go to PEI and visit her house! I love the idea of a kit with an Anne theme.

I haven't read the books, but I loved the Anne of Green Gables television shows on PBS. They were the only things that I looked forward to during the semi-annual pledge drives!

What a wonderful kit. There's no way I could pick a favorite part of it. I've only recently discovered the AoGG books (how did I miss them?) and haven't seen the TV shows but the books are lovely.

Wow Anne of Green Gables. When I was 10 years old I fell in love with Anne. I spent all of my babysitting money buying her books. I lived in Northern British Columbia and vowed one day I woukd get to see Green Gables. I'm niw 52 and two years ago I finally made it. I was so excited I had tears running down my face. My husband looked at me and said "you do know she's not real". But she was very real to me because she was my childhood friend. I wanted to see where Lucy Maude Montgomery created my Anne. It took me 40 years but I got there. I credit Anne for my love of reading, Susan.cutt@gmail.com

Beautiful kit. The green colorway is so perfect, and would go with Anne Shirley's beautiful auburn hair. My sister, mother, and my daughter and I have all read the Anne of Green Gables books through more than once. We have shared many happy moments discussing the story and loving the main characters so much. Such great nostalgia.

You always have such amazing giveaways, Susan! I have loved the Anne of Green Gables story since i was a little girl and have re-read the series quite often. I always imagined living in a house similar to the one she went to with Gilbert in the Anne's House of Dreams book and oddly my house now is one built in 1900 that is yellow and cape cod style and I imagine it to be very Anne-ish. I also really wished to have red hair as a child because of her despite her sheer dislike of it. lol! I've been thinking lately about reading those books to my daughter who is about to turn 5 because the first one at least I think is a great story for little girls.

I identify with Anne of Green Gables... as a girl I always had my head in a book, even walking to school. I didn't discover this book series until I was an adult, but that didn't stop me from reading all the books multiple times.
I would love to knit this kit... and the project bag and stitch markers are so cute.
