Happy Monday, gang!
Jaclyn here and today and I have a new review! This time it will be about Imperial Stock Ranch’s new limited edition kits!
There are two in question that I had the pleasure of trying out– A cabled mitten set and a cabled headband.
The sets come in both natural and spruce colorways with Imperial Yarn’s Jasmine Luxe. I cannot say enough how soft the yarn was and what a breeze it was to knit with.
As for the patterns themselves, I found them to be delightful and for those of you who might be a little nervous about knitting cables, this is an excellent way to dip your toes into the rippling waters of this technique. It took me perhaps 3-4 hours to make both mittens one lazy Sunday morning while watching some television so these are perfect for quick-knit gifts that are fashionable and fun. I’ve worn my pair many times in the chilly autumn mornings driving to work and they have been holding up great! These are definitely worth the purchase either for yourself or to make as a gift for the upcoming holiday season.
While I’m not a personal fan of headbands (good luck trying to get all these curls reigned in), I will say that this headband kit was a fun project as well. I am a fan of I-Cords so the banding around and the button “snap” was relaxing and enjoyable and I liked the fact that this was very customizable for your head as you can just knit the headband as long as you need (yarn allowing) to achieve a perfect fit. Again, this kit didn’t take me long to finish either, maybe around 2 hours. I would also like to mention that this headband could also double as an ear warmer as shown in the picture to the right as it does knit up wide enough to cover the ears, making it a great transitional piece through those early winter months.
So what’s the verdict? Well the jury is in and this knitter thinks these are a definite must for holiday gift giving or for a nice treat for yourself!
The catch is that they are limited edition so there is only a limited quantity…so you’ll have to act fast!
