2022 Temperature Project Kit by Shanna Jean of Knitted Wit
Kits are 17 total skeins this year, which includes 16 solid colors in each rainbow plus a specially-designed variegated one for month markers.
Included in your purchase:
**seventeen 20-gram Gems Fingering mini skeins in either our Fruity or Moody palettes;
**a printable guide, which includes a color-in thermometer and a monthly chart to track temperatures and colors used, as well as Shannon's Persistence pattern in 2 different widths (scarf and wrap);
**a drawstring project bag with our ShannaJean Temperature Project logo printed in black on front.
Folks who purchase the kit will have the opportunity to purchase individual skeins of the colors that represent their most-experienced temperatures, and we'll be hosting a KAL in the ShannaJean Space (https://forms.gle/zcFACXLEKGHAJp7y6), so we can share tips and tricks and our projects as they grow.
We are using sets of seventeen 90 yard/82m mini skeins for this project. The yarn is Knitted Wit Gems 20g (75% superwash merino / 25% nylon), and each mini skein is 20 grams. We are offering 2 different rainbow color palettes: Fruity and Moody. Refills of individual colors will be available in both the Gem 20g and Gem 100g skeins, so if you think you’ll need lots of any specific color, you can order a full skein.
We are using Shannon’s Persistence pattern as our base. It’s a really fun 2-row chevron pattern, with loads of customization potential. We are providing 2 different stitch counts (for a scarf and a wrap), but you can choose to make it really any width you want, with notes included for customization.
Orders will ship in early December. When your order ships you’ll receive a notification that your order is on its way, with a tracking number. Skeins may vary from dye batch to dye batch, as is typical with handmade goods. We do our best to have a consistent dye lot when ordering more than one skein at a time.
We use professional-grade acid dyes in a smoke-free studio. All yarn is rinsed in cold water until the water runs clear, but it is possible that some residual dye will remain on the skein. We recommend hand washing and laying flat to dry. While super wash yarn can be machine washed and dried, your creation will last longer with gentle care.
