New and exclusive: the Picket Fence set of Minikins. Bright and happy, just in time for the holidays. These nine irresistible nuggets are Tina Whitmore’s latest artful riff on the concept of shifting gradients. We want to drop everything to play with this paintbox.

There are many delightful possibilities in this little box.
This set of nine mini-wheels takes the same beautiful merino wool that we love in Freia’s Shawl Balls and Yarn Bombs, then compresses the color changes so that they happen more quickly.
For this sample, our friend Francie Owens cast on 141 stitches, and otherwise followed Cecelia’s pattern, switching back and forth between two minikins every two rows.
It’s a stunner, 107″ long from tip to tip and 12″ wide, and it used up pretty much the whole box.
But we can’t stop thinking of ideas. Imagine the beauty of a sweater that uses minikins for an exquisite gradient yoke.
Or how about a pile of log cabin blocks joined into a scarf or cushion?
Or a scarf inspired by Kaffe Fassett’s Garter Stripe Shawl? That’s some zen knitting right there.
Whatever you make with them, please be sure to show us!
