New autumn kits and an exciting giveaway!

New autumn kits and an exciting giveaway!

We have some wonderful new kits launching this week. Three sweet shawlettes, and some very beautiful and intricately embroidered mittens .

Lori Versaci has designed a series of three fun shawls called Alma’s Triptych that can be sized up larger by simply adding more yarn. These sweet little shawls have been inspired by Lori’s grand-niece Alma who loves colours!

Alma’s Mini Pompoms Shawl Kit

First up is Mini Pompoms. For this shawl, we’ve chosen the wonderful and colourful Qing Fibres Merino Singles in the colour ‘Frost’, a serene lilac colour with bright pops of fuchsia and royal blue. We’ve paired it with some Uncommon thread BFL/Light DK in the colour ‘Les Fleurs’ so you can make your own bright and happy pompoms to add to the shawl. If you need a pompom maker, which is not included in the Mini Pompoms kit, we have those too!

Alma’s Mini Ribbons Shawl Kit

Our second kit is the Mini Ribbons. This one is an asymmetrically shaped shawl that uses Madelinetosh Pashmina, a luxurious blend of merino wool, silk, and cashmere in the colour ‘Cosmic Wonder Dust’. To complement the colours we have added hand-dyed Monahan ribbon in the colour ‘Blush’ to weave through the eyelet rows at the end of your shawl.

Alma’s Mini Lines Shawl Kit

Last but certainly not least is the Mini Lines. This time it’s a crescent-shaped shawl using the beautiful Lichen and Lace single ply 100% Merino wool in the colour ‘I See Seashells’. To create the ‘lines’ we’ve paired it with a playful novelty yarn from Mondo Fil called Papiyon in bright yellow for some extra texture and a small bundle of LIchen and Lace single ply merino in the colour ‘Teal Tide’ for the pretty picot edging. 

All of the kits include enough yarn to make the shawls along with all the trimmings you’ll need to make your own Mini Pompoms, Ribbons, or Lines. The patterns will be available through Lori Versaci’s Ravelry page where you can purchase one individually or the set of the full triptych

Remember, if you’d like to make a bigger version you will need to buy extra yarn as the kits are only for the original size.

  1. What a lovely giveaway. This blog and your posts have been such a beacon of tranquillity this year. Thank you. I love them all but my choice would be Mini lines for those colours!

  2. I would knit the Mini Pompoms with all those rows of squishy garter stitch in beautiful yarn. A relaxing, luxury knitting project ready for autumn.

  3. Easy choice – Alma pom poms.
    I’ll be able to use my lovely pom pom maker that I was given for my birthday and the mini shawlette will complement my (finally finished during lockdown) On the Spice Market Shawl.
    Plus – what a gorgeous colour.

  4. Oh please, oh please , oh please! Channeling my inner 5 year old in hopes of winning the Mini Lines kit. Your Instagram stories of these fluttering in the breeze is enchanting.

  5. The Alma triptych shawlettes are stunning ! Tough choice. I am in awe with the textures and colors of the Mini lines. I would be delighted to knit these exquisite yarns. Happy knitting to all !

  6. What a beautiful collection of shawls to knit and keep us happy as the nights draw in! I would love to try Mini Lines, but would be so happy to win any! Such gorgeous colours.

  7. I so miss seeing the sea – too far for a lockdown/not lockdown/lockdown trip! So I See Seashells Mini Lines kit really speaks to me!

  8. Would be thrilled to win any of these gorgeous kits. Such a difficult choice, but the Mini Ribbons with the dreamy ‘Cosmic Wonder Dust’ and ‘Blush’ ribbon sounds as good as it looks.
    Am always delighted by your beautifully styled images, and the perfect pairings you put together are inspired and inspiring.

  9. My choice would be Mini Ribbons. The colours are beautiful and would brighten the Autumn and Winter days ahead. Thank you.

  10. I’m not a pom-pom or ribbons kind of a person, but love the colours and style of the Mini Lines shawlette. It would make a perfect gift for my small granddaughter, who has a thing about whales and dolphins, and whose idea of heaven is wrapping herself in some kind of blanket or shawl.

  11. Loop blog is truly inspiring for me. Love to see all these beautiful shawls and yarns. My favorite shawl is the Mini Lines, I can picture it on my shoulder while knitting in the fall!

  12. Re: shawl giveaway
    I would love to knit them ALL. I’m mad about shawls in any size and these are particularly luscious. ❤️

  13. I love all of these little shawls. I have five granddaughters and they would bE just PERFECT for them I am delighted to see colors and whimsy posted, which warms up the frights that we are living with. I suppose I like the Mini-Lines best but will knit all three.
