Super Striping Summer KCAL Kits

It started with just us, the SpaceCadet crew, thinking it'd be fun to do summer KCAL together.  We all have a lot of SpaceCadet yarn in our stashes, and we each had projects picked for it -- all of them striped!  We called it our Super Summer Striping KCAL (or our StripeAlong, for short!).  Then we thought, wouldn't it be fun if you all joined us? 

 

Aaaand then... we thought of kits!

A sudden brainwave: since it's all about the stripes, and we have some amazing colour combinations in the SpaceCadet stock room...  why not put together some fabulous kits to encourage you all to join in with us?  So that's what we did! 

We've put together colour combinations that we think will work beautifully in all kinds of striping patterns.  Designed to coordinate (sometimes with a little pop of contrasting colour), they're all ready to ship straight away.  And they're first come, first serve -- so don't waste any time. 

Are you as excited as we are?!? Let's get ready to cast on together!


 

Super Striping Summer KCAL Kits come in either Lyra (sportweight) or Celeste (fingering weight).  Yardage depends on the type of yarn and the number of skeins -- please check the yardage against the project you have in mind.  Please also note that most kits have two images at left so you can see details of each skein.

At SpaceCadet®, we passionately believe that knitting and crocheting make people happier deep down inside and that nothing does that more than working with gorgeous, vibrant yarn.  For us, dyeing is a cosmic adventure -- a wonderful process of mixing each shade by hand from primaries and seeing where the colour takes us.  The result is yarn that is as exciting for you as it is for us.  Come with us and explore the farthest reaches of SpaceCadet® colour!
