The needle geek inside me is rejoicing over one of the newest offerings in the Maker Shed. I’d actually stumbled on these stitched watches from The Mint House several months ago in some of my random internet digging, however, I couldn’t find an easy way to get them here in the States. I flipped out when I saw that we now offer them in the Maker Shed! Here’s what Shed fella, Michael, had to share over on MAKE about these cool kits:

Make your own personalized watch with the Knit-Shock! Watch Kit from the Maker Shed. To make your own personalized watch, just follow the easy to read instructions and use the included needle and thread to create the pattern you want. Don’t have the right colors? The plastic canvas can use a wide variety of yarn from your personal stash or local craft store. This fun kit will let you create a one-of-a-kind digital watch that can be made for a gift or worn for a fun fashion accessory. Let the fun begin with the Knit-Shock! Watch Kit. (Note: Only available with a black or red band. Beef or chicken shirt not included.)

I have a watch fetish, a love for plastic canvas and an undying obsession with needlework. Yep, I think this kit was made for me! (and you!)
