After a lot of designing and sourcing of knitting supplies, I am happy to be able to share details for one of my first knitting kits.
This kit will come in 3 sizes for different teapots. Small (2 Cup), Medium (6 Cup) and Large (10 Cup). It is designed for high level beginner skill level due to there being some basic shaping and sewing skills required.
The Tea Cosies will come in a choice of 6 different colours, all with colour-matched Resin Heart Shaped buttons and a choice of different coloured pom-poms.
Colours will be: Rich Rouge, Loud Lemon, Plummy Purple, Grassy Green, Tantalising Turquoise and Pretty Pink. Pictured above are: Small 2 Cup tea cosy in Rich Rouge and Large 10 Cup tea cosy in Grassy Green.
More pictures will be added to my Facebook and twitter pages as soon as they are available.
Everything you need to complete these items will be included (excluding scissors):
Exclusive pattern with full instructions
A pair of 4mm bamboo knitting needles.
All yarn required for knitting Tea Cosy and making up Pom-Pom
Resin Heart Shaped buttons in co-ordinating colours
DMC stranded cotton, colour-matched for sewing on buttons
Clover Pom Pom maker
Metal tapestry and sewing needles for making up
The kit will also come with a free cotton bag that can be used again with our logo on. While I could have made up all of the pom-poms for the kits, I am keen to get people using the accessories that I love. It will also add a bit of value to the kits as it gives you something you can use again and again.
I am hoping to launch with a set of tutorials for people to learn the basics of knitting. Approaching launch, I will be adding more patterns, some of which can be knitted with no prior knowledge of the craft.
If anyone is interested in these kits, they will be priced at £14.99 for the small teapot, £16.99 for the medium and £19.99 for the large. My first run will be available at the beginning of August and I am happy to put some aside for people.
Please note, buttons, thread and yarn also differ, dependent on main colour of kit. Main colour of tea cosy and pom-pom colours are selectable by buyer. Buttons and DMC thread are selected in accordance with the pattern.
