  1. I guess it would appeal to a non-knitter looking for a last minute gift for someone who wants to knit. Otherwise, not so much.

  5. I don’t mind the price, but only if it’s actually worth it. But a pair of crappy (look like plastic) needles and 108 yards of acrylic yarn? That’s got to be worth $6, tops. 108 yards! That’s not even enough for half a scarf. I bet they’re assuming the giftee won’t make it to the end before realizing that.

  7. Sadly, I think I saw these kits in one of the gift shops at the Metropolitan Museum of Art recently. Why? WHY?
