Envisioning the History of Crochet through Fiction and Design…

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.

The Second Half of Unraveling: Castanola, Texas by author C. Jane Reid. Driven by anger and grief, Omer Pierson wants nothing more than justice for the death of his friend, while Lucy Donaghue is grieving for the loss of the only man who had cared for her in Castanola. The appearance of a Texas Ranger in the small town might be the salvation for both Lucy and Omer, but another threat is galloping across the West Texas prairie. Will Omer put aside his disdain for Lucy to stand between her and danger, or will Lucy stand unprepared and alone against a long forgotten foe?

The townsfolk of Castanola have given little welcome to Lucy, but she is grateful to the little kindness others have showed. Using yarn left for her, she crochets a special gift in thanks. Laurinda Reddig recreates this useful item in a clever 2-color stitch pattern for her Latest Design for the kit club.

“What’s not to love? I get so excited when I get my kit, like a little kid getting a present. Lol. The stories are well written and as an avid reader I can’t put it down until I either fall asleep or finish the book. The patterns are well written and wonderful items to make some you want to make it over and over again. The yarn is wonderful and the surprise extra is always great.” — Christine S.

I have too many WIP at the moment, but I’ll definitely be hooking this shawl soon!” — Tara Doherty

  1. I found out about Ficstitches through Moogly’s site.
    I love the concept of reading for pleasure and crocheting for pleasure being combined.
    I’m very interested in the next available Deluxe kit.

    Your new fan!

    • Thanks Tatia! If you have signed up for our mailing list, you will be among the first to find out when the next Kit is available in July!

    • Sure! International shipping should cover it. Just one more day to sign up for the first kit!

  2. I just emailed you to be put on the mailing list since I, sadly, can’t afford to sign up for the kit right now

    • You can actually sign up on our Mailing List at the top of the right-hand column! Just enter your email address and name, and you will be among the first to find out when the next kits are available. Thanks! Laurinda

  3. I just want to say how fabulous Laurinda was in contacting me with the problem I encountered and helping to resolve it! The problem was evidently with my bank card and not the website, so I know how to fix for future shipments. Super excited to receive my first kit next month!! Thank you so very much!

  4. Hello my dear Ficstitches team,
    I just placed my order for the next kit. I did want to order the book from the last kit that I missed, but the usual place for notes on paypal didn’t show in the window, so could you tell me how I can order it, after the fact? I love the kits, the yarns, the colors, the patterns, and the stories. I’ve been cutting back on my crocheting purchases because arthritis has taken a bite out of my crocheting, but I decided I have to keep trying. Your kits are so enjoyable! I love the whole presentation.
    Thanks again,
    Barb Worner

    • Hello Barb, Welcome back! I did notice that you had not added on Part One. But no worries. We plan to email anyone who didn’t get part 1 in the last kit and didn’t add it. We will send you a link to add on Part One soon!

  5. I have been loving the Ficstitches Yarns Kits and if you love crochet patterns, hand dyed yarn, stories that incorporate yarny stuff, and delightful accessories then you will too! Orders are almost done for the Summer 2016 kit but before we re out of time, I get to give one away!

  6. And then every kit also has beautiful hand dyed yarn from an indie dyer! The dyer changes from kit to kit, but you always get your pick of two featured colors. The Summer 2016 kit features your choice of Lush or Midnight Emerald!

  7. Is there a link to preorder the winter kit?(2017) I signed up for the fall kit, received it (beautiful!) but am unable to find where to order the next kit.
    (Unless it’s right in front of me and do not see it!)
    Thank you

    • Great! In general, you just need to refresh the page after 8am on the day we open preorders, as we usually don’t add the buttons onto the main page until then. Glad you are enjoying our kits!
