Love To Knit Kit Review by Lisa Barthuly

The "Love to Knit Kit" is the perfect little kit for beginning knitters and hands-on learning.

This very high quality kit comes with everything you'll need to get knitting: a nifty little carry case, instructional booklet, and lovely wooden knitting needles--not to mention the gorgeous, hand spun, hand dyed yarn that is included.

So much learning is in doing, and knitting is one of those skills that can be used for a lifetime. The "Love To Knit Kit" is a fun way to introduce this timeless art. My girls loved having their own knitting needles, especially the smaller, smooth wooden ones provided in this kit. They are so much easier to grasp than the big metal (slippery) ones normally seen in craft shops. The even bigger hit with the children was the colorful, soft yarn! It is really fine quality! (Anyone who has ever received a knitted item made with that itchy poly-type yarn knows what I am talking about!)

This is a fun way to learn a skill that will be used over a lifetime and a great high-quality kit to do it with! Happy knitting!
