Join Mailing List for Updates about Future Kits
Ficstitches Yarns Kit Club is a quarterly kit club specially designed for crocheters that combines your two favorite hobbies, Crocheting and Reading! So much more than a yarn club, each element of these kits is a mysterious delight…
Have you ever dreamt of traveling to a time long past? Of sitting before the hearth fire listening to stories while you crochet from the homespun yarn in the basket at your feet? Beyond your door, the night spreads across the farmyard into the gloomy forest where tree boughs shiver in the wind and creatures of old lurk. Your cabin is safe and warm, but outside, unknown dangers and unimagined adventures await.
If you are daring, you can set aside your hook, pull on your shawl, and open the door to explore this strange new land.
Join the Adventure . . .
Journey with the Ficstitches Yarns Crochet Kit Club on an adventure back to those days of old. Each kit offers a fictional story and crochet pattern along with hand-dyed yarn and a handmade accessory, all bound together in a theme of romance, history, and a touch of the supernatural.

Spring 2017 Kit Club will Include:
The First Half of the Newest story in the Unraveling series by author C. Jane Reid. Carolina Beauregard had thought to find only backwoods folk when her family moved to small-town Metamora, Indiana. The canal has helped the village blossom into a lively community, but Carolina has bigger dreams. To fulfill them, she needs help, so she sets forth to win the trust of Nan Prescott, who lives on the edge of society with her drunken father, doing odd chores to earn their keep. When she learns of Nan’s desire to learn crochet, a skill every other woman in town seems to have, Carolina makes a bargain to trade her knowledge for Nan’s own skills. For she intends to make her own way in the world, and that means knowing how to wash her own linens and scrub her own floors. But when the quiet and handsome Bradley Donaghue shows Carolina the beauty of small-town life, will her dream turn into something new?
Carolina’s father has always made his fortune on the water, first upon the Mighty Mississippi aboard steamboats, and now as owner of a small fleet of canal barges plying the Whitewater Canal through Metamora. Calling upon skills pass down to her by her grandmother, Carolina crochets her father a fitting gift for a boatman, one that will help keep at bay the brisk chill of early spring mornings. Recreated in Laurinda Reddig’s usual elegance, this newest crochet design will make a fitting gift for any man or woman.
This kit features American Dream DK from Huckleberry Knits in Bellingham, WA. This 100% superwash merino wool yarn is grown, milled, and hand-dyed in the USA, an entirely US made product, a perfect tie in with C. Jane’s stories of the early US included in the kits. Each kit will include one 245-yard skein of yarn in your choice of “Salish Sea” or “Butter” colorways. Read more about the dyer of this gorgeous yarn HERE.
The handmade gift for this kit will be a sophisticated addition to the finished project, made by a new artist we have not featured in our kits before. Although this kit includes a little less yarn than some, look forward to an extra handmade tool that can be used with this and future projects. As always, you will find references to the design and gift seamlessly tied in with the story.
