This design arose from a collaboration between Kim of Indigodragonfly yarns who supplied the yarn, and Karen of Shall We Knit? in Waterloo, Ontario who donated the kits to the November 2012 Knot Hysteria retreat. Limited edition kits were supplied in two colourways found exclusively at Shall We Knit?: “Stick Out Your Tongue and Say Mine!” (blues) and “Shall We Tint?” (oranges). The kits are now sold out, but more of the yarn used can be had at www.shallweknit.com

Buttons were sourced from Shall We Knit? in Waterloo, Ontario.
