Have you come across Wool And The Gang? They’re very active on Instagram and my impression is that they’ve been on a significant and successful social media onslaught – I’ve spotted lots of other bloggers knitting their wares.
When I was asked if I’d like to sample their products, I chose the Snood Dogg kit. My biggest challenge was picking from the ultra yummy range of colours. I forced myself to go for a deep navy that would colour match my outer wear. Sensible – pah! I still want to knit myself a pink snood.
If there doesn’t already exist an unboxing video of Wool And The Gang kits, there needs to be one. Unpacking mine was a sensual smorgasbord of woolly love.
These kits are pricey. The snood would have cost me £45 if I’d paid for mine. Not a cheap beginner make, but then the wool is 100% Peruvian wool, the needles are rosewood, I was given a darning needle, clasp… If I’d bought all that separately, the pennies would have quickly added up. And I do think this kit would make a gorgeous gift for a newbie knitter.
I enjoyed stopping by Wool And The Gang’s pop up shop in Oxford Circus over Christmas and I’m eyeing up their Let’s Groove Cardigan. But what colours to choose? I don’t need to be sensible all the time … do I?
