I’ve been out of town so this reveal is a little late in the month, but better late than never. Especially when it includes a giveaway!
I got some really cool stuff this month and I can’t wait to show you.
First, the Sweet Extra
J&M Key Lime Cookies ($4 value)
“All natural” and cookies don’t always go well together. I thought I would try one of these tea cookies and then the cotton mouth that would result from the dryness of the cookie would prevent me from eating another.
Well, I tried one and the next thing I knew, the bag was empty.
The cookies were so delicious that I’m about to order some more from their website. Did I mention they included a 20% off promo code as well?
The outer coating was a sort of thick powered sugar but more soft and less asphyxiating — ever breathe in accidentally when biting a powered doughnut?
The key lime was sweet, yet wonderfully tart and the actually cookie was very soft and not dry at all.
I highly recommend these and if you don’t like them, I will take any extras off of your hands.
Next the Fun Extra
The Digital Finger Tally Counter ($10 value)
This thing is very cool. It’s a row/stitch counter that has an adjustable ring to fit on your finger. I will have to try it out and see which finger it will work best on.
It has a nice large button in the center for keeping track. Then a reset button to get you back to zero and a LCD button to light up your display when working in low light.
I received a yellow one, but it comes in tons of different colors as well.
Patterns and Promo Codes
The two free patterns this month are the Grace Scarf and Lauren Cowl ($10 value)
I’ll be giving away the code to download these below, so if you knit, or want to learn, these are both beautiful patterns to do it with.
1. 20% off any online order at JM-foods.com (the cookie makers above.)
3. 15% off of Swan Island’s Merino and Natural Colors yarn (yarn included in knitcrate).
I love the name of this yarn.
Swans Island Natural Color Collection in Sea Glass ($48 for both hanks)
It’s handcrafted in Maine and hand dyed.
This super soft lace weight is 50% fine merino wool and 50% tussah silk. It comes with a whopping 530 yards per hank. I think I will need to make a very special shawl with this. Stay tuned for that.
Loving the Knitcrate this month. Did you get one? If you haven’t, what are you waiting for? Use this link and get 10% off your first order. Meanwhile, get a better look at the haul here in this video reveal.
