Hello lovely Stashers!

It is almost time for our annual Camp KAL! We always have a lot of fun putting together these kits with Tuft Woolens and this year was no exception. In fact, this is probably my most favorite kit yet and I can hardly wait to share it with you. This year's camp theme is...National Parks! Something so grand just couldn't be contained by one singular kit and so we will have a series of three different kits, each inspired by a different park in a different part of the country. Each part of the series will drop on the first day of a new season and so the first is coming to the shop on Monday, September 23rd at 12pm noon central time and is inspired by the Great Smoky Mountains!

What is included with the kit you ask? Well, let me tell you!

First, of course, there is a perfect must match skein of Great Smoky Mountains. It is 12 stripes inspired by the photo above...autumnal sunrise sky, smoky blue mountain peaks, lush green forest, rich brown soil and speckled sandy hiking trail just for fun. I hope you will love it as much as I do! ($35 value)

Speaking of loving something, Tuft Woolens has outdone herself once again. The sock soap and hand balm both in an awesome smoky woodsy scent and a lip balm is my personal favorite ever, Toasted Marshmallow. ($21 set value)  

This kit has not one but two project bags included! 

First up, from one of the coolest Indie brands in the market, Ritual Dyes, a mini Knitter's Backpack in a brand new color, Pines. This sweet little backpack is constructed from 18 oz water repellent canvas, thick cotton webbing straps and a leather hang loop. This innovative and versatile bag can be set on the ground and knit from like a yarn bowl, carried on your forearm, pull the straps through and wear it like a sling bag or split the straps and carry it like a true backpack, knitting all the while. It has a modern and sophisticated shape you won’t tire of plus this mini version is fun, cute and just the right size! ( $88 value) 

Our second bag is a 11"x 8" drawstring pouch, perfect for sock projects or to throw in your Knitter's Backpack for your keys/wallet. ($12 value)

Lastly, we are including the custom Great Smoky Mountains iron on patch...perfect for attaching to your Knitter's Backpack...and a professionally printed copy of the GSM Trail Map! Back when this kit was just a dream, we thought of how fun it would be to have limited edition "merit badges" for this series of kits and we hope you will too. ($3.50 value)

There are only 100 of this kits available so set your alarms, Monday, September 23rd at 12pm noon central time, the kit is priced with a savings at $140After the kits sell out, we will offer a limited number of PREORDER Small Kits. These Small Kits will include the Great Smoky Mountains skein, the Tuft Woolens trio, the logo drawstring bag and the limited edition GSM custom merit badge patch.

Show me the Kit

The next in the series for Camp KAL will be inspired by the majesty of Denali and will be available the first day of Winter, December 21st!
