Knit Kit Jewelry Review & Giveaway!!


If you watched my Stitch & Dish Web Show last Friday, you are already aware of Knit Kit Jewelry. (..if not, you can watch a video review HERE.) Knit Kit Jewelry is the brain child of Joyce Goodman, designer, artist, knitter, and art jeweler.  Joyce wanted a way to mesh her love of knitting and art jewelry to create simple, gorgeous kits for others to enjoy these mediums.  And so Knit Kit Jewelry was born.

These interesting and beautiful kits allow knitters to explore new avenues in knitting. So even if you've NEVER created jewelry before, all you need are the basic knitting skills to create a gorgeous piece of your own.

Each bracelet kit comes complete with pattern, basic instructions for knitting with wire, wire, and clasps.  All you need are your own knitting needles to get started.  The wire that comes with each kit is copper coated for a comfortable experience and is available in a wide array of stunning colors, allowing the knitter to make each piece his/her own.  As pictured above (left to right), there are three bracelet kits available: Buckle Bracelet, Ruched Cuff, and Regal Cuff.

I had the opportunity to review both the Ruched and Regal Cuffs.  And let me just tell you that at first, I felt like all thumbs.  It was difficult for me to get used to the wire and it's obvious difference to knitting with fiber.  But with a little coaching from Joyce, I developed a rhythm and muscle memory while knitting the Regal Cuff and found it to be much easier than I did initially.  While I don't think that I would knit with wire every day, I did enjoy learning a new way to incorporate my love of knitting in a different crafty endeavor.

Knitting with wire takes some getting used to and some patience.  It does take much longer than knitting with fiber, but keep in mind you're only knitting a 6 inch bracelet when you're knitting with wire. (Joyce estimates it takes about 6 hours for the beginner and intermediate kits and 15 hours for the advanced bracelet kits to complete.) I think you'll enjoy the challenge and the satisfaction of creating a beautiful piece of jewelry while utilizing your knitting skills.

The bracelet kits retail for $65 - $75/each and are available online at KnitFitJewelry.com.  (Necklace kits and a la carte wire are also available.)

The very generous Joyce Goodman of Knit Kit Jewelry has decided to give one of my lucky readers their choice of bracelet kits!  That's right!
