Meet the Jetson Sweater Kit: The Perfect Knitter’s Gift!

I know, I know. Your mind is probably filled with projects to knit and craft for your loved ones. But isn’t it just as important to think about good gift ideas that THEY can put on their shopping list for you? Or better yet, perhaps you should put something on your own list as a reward for a job well done in 2018. If you’re looking for a truly spectacular gift for yourself (or your fellow knitter), then keep reading, because I think I know what should be on your list.

The Importance of Yarn

If “clothes make the man (or woman),” then surely “yarn makes the sweater.”

There are times when the silhouette of a design comes first and then I go hunting for a yarn, and then there are the times when a special yarn is the start of my design. The moment I saw (and felt) Anzula’s For Better or Worsted I knew it would be the perfect yarn for my first (drum roll please) custom dyed SWEATER KIT!!!

Treat Yourself This Season! Introducing the Jetson Sweater Kit

Jetson is a stockinette sweater with fully fashioned shaping, generous ease at the hips, a split hem, longer in the back and fun contrasting color welts and an i-cord bind-off. I made this sweater before the New York Sheep and Wool Festival, and I have gotten SO MUCH amazing, positive feedback about the design already.

The shape is simple, flattering on many different body types, and it’s the perfect backdrop for a really special yarn.

Anzula yarn is 100% made in America and hand-dyed to order yarn in the most STUNNING colors. For Better or Worsted is 80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon and 1000% AMAZING. That’s why I am so excited that I am able to work with Anzula to bring you this soft, luscious yarn as a limited edition sweater kit.

Yes, this yarn is a splurge—it’s true—but once a year, don’t you deserve a gift?! You know you deserve it, so treat yourself!


So . . . who’s in? Take the Survey to Express Interest

We will open up ordering in early December.

This is a survey that will give Anzula a good idea of the color interest. Remember, you can still change your mind when you order, but the more accurate this survey is, the quicker the custom dye time will be for our kit. All yarns are hand dyed and 100% made in America . . . and sooo yummy!

All kits will include:

  • All the hand dyed yarn (dyed to order) for your sweater and swatch, all for 10% off!! (yarn retails at $34.50 / skein)
  • Sweater pattern at 50% off!
  • FREE glove pattern (with same yarn as your sweater!)
  • How-to videos to help with the color techniques

That’s a $27 – $48 savings for the kit!!
