Mitten Kits are Back!

Hi, Knitters,
I want to pop in to give you a quick head's up about the Barrett Wool Co. Waiting for Winter Bulky Twist Mitten Kits. As of dinner time last night they are back in the shop. We had a huge number of kits listed (much more this time) and we have almost blown through the entire lot again but there are still some left in the shop if you hurry! 

The best way (and the first to be notified!) to find out about kits and yarn and patterns is the Barrett Wool Co. newsletter. Click here to sign up! There is a box on the bottom of every page on the website to enter your email to sign up. And I promise that we are restocking everything in the Barrett Wool Co. shop as fast as possible.

As of right now, there are three different colorways you can order. The photo above shows the Red & Black Licorice colorway. 

The pattern includes three sizes, small, medium and large. The small size will fit a large child/women's small, the medium is the size I wear, the large size will fit a larger woman/men's size. Lengths of course can be varied.
Blueberries & Cream is the next colorway available. We have the smallest amount of this kit version available. 
And last but not least, we have the Coffe & Cream option. This is the colorway of the knit sample.

The kit includes a hand-stamped muslin project bag, a tin of 20 assorted stitch markers, the digital pattern download link, and a Ravelry download code (printed on a card in the kit) for the pattern so you can store it in your pattern library over there, and of course, the wound yarn in your selected color! 

Here is the Blueberries & Cream mitten I worked up yesterday in size large. This took me less than an hour from start to finish. It's such a fun and fast project. Perfect for this time of year. 

I have to say it is hard to get a good natural lighting photo lately as the weather has been so dark and gray. We have barely seen the sun for weeks. And it's been raining and icy. Where did the beautiful winter go? 

We have had a lot of requests to carry the yarn in individual skeins and we are planning to do that as well. We have a big order in with the local mill for more of the Bulky Twist Yarn and also for our Wisconsin Woolen Spun naturals and colors in both fingering weight and worsted weight. We are nearly sold out with only a few skeins left in the shop. These yarns are listed in the Mercantile. 

The reaction to the lovely, rustic local Wisconsin-milled yarns has been overwhelming! Thank you so much. I am glad to see that you love the touch of Wisconsin as much as I do. 

Anyway, happy weekend! I'll be back soon with much more. Maybe it's time for a giveaway around here.... yes, next week.
