This kit includes everything you need to try your hand at knitting. You get one skein of Universal Yarn's Deluxe Worsted Superwash yarn and a set of size 9 Knitter's Pride Karbonz 10 inch needles. The yarn is machine washable and soft. It comes in the Honey Dew color pictured here, but can be exchanged for another color of the same yarn. No purchase is necessary to join in Free Workshop Friday's, but if you need supplies, this package is more cost efficient than buying the items separately. There's no shipping required, your items will be ready at the workshop!
