Dawn is my favorite time of the day, the crack of dawn. It’s usually a pretty peaceful time which I love. The theme of the new issue of Making Magazine is Dawn, a tribute to the soft feeling and colors of a new day. I decided to go the outdoorsy weather route with my contribution by bringing in a subdued rainbow with fluffy clouds, a gentle raindrop or two, and a friendly sun that’s making it all happen. It turned into a brand new Charm Set. I have done a bunch of charm sets including veggies, a couple of different holiday-themed sets, sweaters, spring novelties, a fall harvest, and even long johns.
The Dawn Charm Set, like the others, can be made into a garland or the projects can be individual ornaments or even a pocket charm for a loved one you might know. The projects are all cleverly seamless in construction.
We have pulled together some very sweet Dawn Charm Set Kits for you today with our springy 2-ply Woolens sport weight yarn. You’ll get five skeins in the kit. The colors I’ve selected are filled with an airy spring-like touch, Belle (rose), Thulian (dusty heathered pink), Pound Cake (buttery yellow), Snowbound (creamy white), and Greenland (fresh minty green).
You’ll get enough yarn in the kit to make a garland just like mine, meaning several of each of the sun, rainbow, and raindrop. We are providing black thread and three sets of safety eyes to finish off the suns, and white baker’s twine to make your charms into a garland if you like.
I think you’ll love our new Dawn Charm Set Kits! I can’t wait to see what you make.
