Autumn Equinox Kits

Autumn Equinox 1     Fall…… What does it evoke in you? Memories of summer rains and the rich colors of Moss? The unexpected glint of Amber as the first leaves start turning? Or the lure of all things Pumpkin Spice? No matter what fall brings to mind, we’ve got an Autumnal Equinox kit ready for you!
     Joan from Lollipop Yarn ( and Jan from JanBSmiley bags ( have teamed up to create a Limited Edition sock kit. The yarn is Lollipop Yarn’s Gripes base (80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon 2 ply Fingering Weight), This yarn is machine washable; hand wash for extra long lasting socks. It comes as a 100 gram hand wound ball, approximately 410 yards. The yarn knits up: 8 rows Mushroom, then 4 rows each Winesap, Pumpkin Spice, Amber, Moss, then back to 8 rows Mushroom.
     Jan’s unique project bag is made from durable heather gray wool felt, and each cube has 2 leaves embroidered on it – one on each side of the bag. There are 3 color options: Moss, Amber, and Pumpkin Spice. The zipper color and leather zipper pulls coordinate with the leaves. Because the leaves are each individually sewn, their exact shape and placement varies.
     The project bag is approximately 6″ x 6″ x 4” high, a versatile size for your future 1-2 skein projects after you’ve finished your socks.
     The kits also include a mini Lose Me Not with 5 graphite grey metal coil less stitch markers to keep inside your cube for on the go sock knitting. Your kit will be mailed no later than September 16th – just in time for you to cast on as you celebrate the Autumnal Equinox.
The cost for the kits is $65. They go up for sale at Noon Eastern on Tuesday, September 1st! Get them at JanBSmiley.
