On Jimmy's Journey to India, we will visit the [mostly female!] artisans that craft our favorite products from brands like Knit Collage, Knitter's Pride, and Parveen Scissors. You can even join us to shop in markets across India and learn how to craft from the crafters themselves!
Come with us as we explore both the people and the processes behind the items they create. Because as much as we love yarn, it's always been about the people. The legacy of what we cast on begins with the hands and souls that make our craft possible and we will weave in the ends and bring your projects to life!
And, of course, a trip like this wouldn't be complete unless we took our knitting along! Not only do we invite you to Journey to India with us, but we invite you to Knit-a-long with us! Join Matt and Laura, aka "Jimmy," as they knit beautiful travel-friendly projects...and learn about every item in the kit along the way - from how it's made and where it comes from, to who makes it and why. As we travel through Jaipur, New Delhi, Punjab and McLeod Ganj, you can knit along with us - and by the end of the trip you will have your very own item to remind you of all of our amazing memories together!
The Passport to India Kit includes:
One full skein of Castaway from Knit Collage
One mini surprise skein from Knit Collage
Ribbon - Hand selected by Amy
3 knitting patterns designed by Rachel Roden of Unraveled Designs, Amy Small of Knit Collage, and a signature piece by Jimmy
Knitter's Pride handmade shawl stick
Custom zippered project bag
Custom Dreamz US 15 interchangeable tips in the new Golden Light wood color
Custom 28" interchangeable cord
A hand printed block printed journal and pencil (we will even design our own!)
And so you can follow along, a map of India!
We will take you with us to see how each item included is made and even make some of our own needles and dyes just for you. With your help, we will find souvenirs to buy along the way. You can shop the markets with us LIVE throughout the trip via Facebook for even more beautiful handmade goods like quilts, shawls, wooden blocks, and much, much more.
Shop with us live from India on these dates!
