As knitters go, I’ve been a bit of a slacker. I’ve not done nearly as much knitting as I’d like to of late and it shows. I’m on edge and cranky. No one likes me when I’m cranky. I know without a doubt that it’s stress but right now I’m not sure I can change it.
Sigh, what’s a knitter to do?
I’ve kept up on my knitting obsession through instagram and one of the accounts that I love to follow and heart is We Are Knitters. Their knit pics are knitting perfection. The yarn looks absolutely divine. On more than one occasion I’ve wished I could heart some of their instagrams more than once.
I was pleased as punch when they emailed and asked to host a giveaway with me. They sent me an absolute perfect kit of my choice, yarn, also of my choice, in exchange for setting up an amazing giveaway. (<– disclosure ya’ll).
Did I tell you I’m excited? I mean like… over the moon excited! But before we get to that, let me tell you a bit more about We Are Knitters.
We Are Knitters is an international luxury yarn and knitting kit company. They ship worldwide glorious yarns and knitting kits (you know how I feel about knitting kits? Send me all the kits!!). They offer wool, cotton, baby alpaca, and merino yarns in addition to needles, notions, and pattern kits. The wool and cotton yarns are all 100% natural as are their Beechwood needles.
Now on to the good stuff…
I opted for the Doughnut Beanie and Snood Kit in the colors purple and grey. This is one of their easy knit kits. The beanie and snood are knit up flat then stitched up the sides (don’t forget to weave in your ends). I’m more than half way done with the beanie and I am so glad I get to touch this yarn. I could touch it all day, every day. It’s incredibly soft and squishy. I hate wearing anything made with stiff yarn close to my face or neck. This.Is.Perfection. God Bless those sheep. I’d love it if you follow my progress with the Doughnut Beanie and Snood kit on instagram hashtag #nikkiknitsasnood
Now that you know what was in it for me (yarn, duh), let’s talk about what you’re getting.
Like I’ve already mentioned; amazing knitting kits! We Are Knitters and I want to give you your very own Udon Blanket Kit.
The Udon Blanket kit contains the following:
* 5 BALLS OF 100% PERUVIAN WOOL YARN (200 GR. EACH)
* 15 MM/ UK S/E/ US 19 WOODEN KNITTING NEEDLES
* THE PATTERN
* A SMALL KNITTER’S SEWING NEEDLE
* EMBROIDERED LABEL
* WAK PACKAGING
You can choose from 15 great colors:
- Blue Klein

I’d probably choose Spotted or Red for a pop of color but don’t let me tell you what to choose!
I can’t begin to tell you how much you’re going to love this yarn. But what I also loved about my kit is the detailed instructions. WAK even tells you where to find more information on techniques used in the pattern if you’re struggling.
