Noro Square-in-Square Afghan Kit

This colorful kit for the "Square in a Square Blanket" featured in "Noro Magazine Issue 12" and shown in the right sidebar here, Includes eight skeins of Kagayaki (six in a main color and two in an accent color) and comes packaged in a craft brown paperbag (no plastic here!). The kit includs a FREE copy of Noro Magazine Issue #12

The finished measurements are approx 40" x approx 48"

Kagayaki is a 40% wool, 24% cotton, 18% each silk and viscose yarn that is knit on a US 8-ish needle. This is not a yarn that I stock in the store - it is tooo close in gauge to both Kureyon (100% wool) and Silk Garden (wool, silk, mohair blend) for me to justify having it as well. But for a limited time I am offering this kit in the colors indicated below.

I know that I have found it most gratifying during this stressful period to knit simple, but colorful projects - especially ones that have measureable points of progress like the "blocks". So even tho' this is a large project with a longer time to completion, you have a sense of accomplishment with each block done!!

What a great project to begin to see us thru the easing of this isolation. And have a happy new afghan ready to wrap yourself in this fall and winter when we are likely still to be socializing cautiously and spending more time at home.
