Welcome to the Weekend Kits Blog! This is our first official blog entry and we have some exciting new product arrivals to share. Yesterday, we added 2 new Creative Project Kits to our Knit & Crochet category.

The first kit is the Simply Scarves All-In-One Knit Kit by Lion Brand Yarn. This quick and easy knitting kit includes everything you need to create the fun and colorful Carnival Scarf shown in the photo. Inside the kit, you'll find 2 balls of yarn, a pair of knitting needles, and a yarn needle. It's an ideal project for a relaxing Weekend at Home.

The second kit is the Deluxe Speed Knitting Book & Kit. You'll only find this knitting kit at Weekend Kits! If you haven't heard about the Speed Knitting Book by Kris Percival, it's a book of 24 quick, easy, and contemporary knitting projects. It contains beautiful full color photographs of the completed projects.

We've combined this book with chunky knitting needles and chunky yarn to get you started right away on your first project - the Classic Skinny Scarf. This kit is currently available with Bluebell yarn, but will soon be offered in Wheat and Willow too. This is a quality kit that will provide you lasting value.
