History Review: a knit kit

Happy Sunday everyone! The other day I came across this kit (in Panagiota's drawer) and decided to make a post about it. It's a gift that was given to Panagiota around 2007 (or maybe 08?), by me!

It was definitely my non-crocheting period, unlikely Panagiota was knitting and crocheting a lot. This knit kit by Benetton, included this plastic yarn holder, 125gr of yarn, and a pair of 10mm wooden needles. (I didn't find the 10mm needles, but instead you can see, in the photo below, a huuuge pair of 20mm needle pair Panagiota bought lately...waaant!!) By the way , the wooden 10mm needles were not that regular to find in a yarn store in Athens, at that time, so I had to buy it for her a)because the kit was cute b)because she would love a pair of rare needles!

the needles are just for fun here, nothing knitted is shown.....

As you can see, she had chosen not to knit! but to crochet instead (just saying) although now that the yarn is refound she said that she will finish this (forever!)wip... by knitting it, this time!

The texture and the color of the yarn is lovely, and as for the quality of it, was described at the tag as "red mélange wool with a blue streak" soft soft and soft once more! I say that this yarn is pretty ok for a soft and bulky scarf, and obviously this non breakable yarn holder is doing its job. Well done Benetton, I once liked your gift idea , and I still do.

[p.s. This was the first (official) "history review" post, a new feature over here at Double Crochets, that will mostly be about yarn and craft stuff from our past.... !]
