ROMANCE! ADVENTURE! CROCHET?
Bringing you a unique CROCHET KIT CLUB bound together by yarns, both wooly and wordy…
Every craft lovingly handmade tells a story. Ficstitches Yarns takes creating to another level by offering fictional stories and crochet patterns along with hand-dyed yarn, and handmade accessories, all bound together in a theme of romance, history, the coming-together of friends, and a touch of the supernatural.
Ficstitches Yarns Kit Club is a quarterly kit club specially designed for crocheters that combines your two favorite hobbies, Crochet and Reading! So much more than a yarn club, each element of these kits is an adventure, with a little bit of mystery and a whole lot of fun…

Winter 2016 Kit Club Will Include:
The Second Half of the Newest story in the Unraveling series by author C. Jane Reid concludes the tale of Hollis Donaghue. Wanted for murder and pursued by an unknown foe, Hollis sets off on his own in an attempt to draw out his enemies. Bea Confer is against the plan from the beginning, but Hollis can no longer put the woman he’s come to care for at risk. He is confident in his skills as a woodsman and in the craft his mother taught him, but is it enough? Or has he just put the people he loves at more risk by setting off alone? (Note: If you missed the last kit, you can add on Part 1 when you order to read the full story)
During his travels, Hollis whiles away the time between making camp and sleep with crochet. He favors useful, practical items that his mother taught him to make. But when a man wants to make a gift, useful and practical isn’t always best. Drawing upon his time among other people and cultures, Hollis works up something new in hopes of one day impressing a certain lady he admires. Recreating Hollis’s work, Laurinda Reddig’s latest crochet design captures the elegant, and yet still practical, gift.
This kit features Madrone Fingering Weight Yarn from Mosaic Moon in Ashland, Oregon. This delectable yarn is made from 60% Superwash Merino, 20% Silk, and 20% Yak and is an absolute delight to work with! Mosaic Moon’s colorways have so much depth of color and subtle shading that I cannot capture them properly. Choose between Nessie and Web of Life keeping in mind that both colorways have darker overtones than these photos show. Nessie is more of a deeper green rather than teal and Web of Life has almost brownish overtones with the purple.
The handmade gift for this kit can be used with the finished project. As always, you will find references to the design and gift seamlessly tied in with the story.
