These kits are in stock!
Here is the story behind the design, in Casapinka's words:
June 4 is National Hug Your Cat Day. As most of you already know, Sharon From Security (pictured below, but she's not the freaking boss, she just went crazy with the label maker) does not like to follow rules and she makes stuff up ALL THE TIME. In that spirit, she unilaterally overruled Hallmark and declared June 5-7 International Hug Your Pet Weekend (so she can make fun of dogs.) She then decided that my latest design (a shawl called Hug Shot - get it?) should be free to those who buy yarn from participating LYS's and Dyers to make it, similar to last month's LYS promotion. The specs are all the same as "Breathe and Hope"; it's just a totally different design.
The pattern is not included.
The yarn we recommend is Baah La Jolla, and the kits are made up of two full skeins in the following colorways:
A - Lemonade, Pink Promise
B - Mint, Pink Promise
C - Mint, Blue Skies
D - California Poppy, Slice of Summer
E - Falling In Love, Purple Haze
