After working in the sportswear industry as a clothing designer, Project Weekend founder Spring Harrison began yearning for the slower pace of making her own things again. Each season, Project Weekend release a collection of premium yarn based projects that include all of the tools, materials and patterns so you can create beautiful items for yourself, your home, and for loved ones.
These gift box knitting kits come with everything needed to give someone the gift of a fun DIY knitting project!
