Last summer when I took my niece and a friend's daughter to the Lowell Quilt Museum I picked up a sashiko potholder kit. I'd been interested in learning sashiko for awhile and had even gone so far as to purchase a few instructive books but I hadn't gotten around to buying materials for making anything. When I saw the kit I thought it would make the perfect introduction to the technique. The kit comes with the design preprinted in water soluble ink and seems simple enough to execute. Last week when I was looking for non-knitting things to occupy my time I remember this kit and pulled it out. I don't think it's going to keep me busy for very long but that's okay since there's currently no knitting moratorium.
