As some of you know, KNITCRATE often sends out review samples to podcasters and bloggers. It’s always fun to get a little surprise in the mail and I’m excited to tell you about the April and May Sock Crate Membership and the May Artisan Crate subscription boxes. All three were packed with beautiful yarn, nifty patterns, and even some extras!

First up, the April Sock Crate Membership brought some sparkle into my life. It was called Golden Hour and included a simple, but elegant sock pattern along with the skein. The yarn is from KNITCRATE’s own line, Vidalana which is a 70/20/10 blend of SW Merino, nylon, and stellina.
I really loved the May Sock Crate Membership the most–it contained a cool speckled skein from KNITCRATE’s Audine Wools yarn in the “Weekend” colorway–bummer that this one sold out, because it’s a pretty blend of 75/15/10 SW Merino, nylon, and *cashmere* . . . but I suspect the folks at KNITCRATE have some other beauties up their sleeve for the coming months!
And, finally, the May Artisan Crate was full–as usual–with a hearty portion of yarn: two incredible skeins from an indie dyer!! And a set of patterns, one for beginner and one for intermediate knitters. The yarn, Fleece Artist Tree Wool in the “Cataylst” colorway, is a super soft blend of 70/30 Merino, Tencil that was dyed only for KNITCRATE–I love the Apex shawl pattern, including all of the buttons on the border–which are also included IN the box! Once I have an open project bag, I think this would be a cool project as it really plays with space-dyed yarn, allowing the colors and textual pattern to play off each other to nice effect.
I’m going to have some fun playing around and swatching with these unique yarns over the summer. If you’re interested in picking up a box of your own in the coming months, you can Subscribe to KnitCrate via this link and use this Discount Code to get 20% Off: KTS20
Thanks so much for the squishables, KNITCRATE!
I love introducing readers to great yarns and meeting new people (and sheep!): if you are an indie dyer, a hand spinner, a shepherdess, a small flock owner, a mill operator, or a wool trader, I would love to feature your work on this site.
