We All Scream For…

Knitcrate Ice Scream Theme!!!

I just got my June 2018 Knitcrate basic membership in the mail and I’m excited to show you what I received.

First off, I received the same super cute and handy Knitcrate box with this cute little message under the tissue paper:

Next, I pulled out this month’s theme card and had a read.

The fresh neons and icy brights of this month’s shipment will have you screaming for more.

Then, I was on to the good stuff.

Vidalana is our beautiful yarn this month.

Not only is it a beautiful turquoise, but it’s super soft and squishy! Just look at the contents!

75% Superwash Merino, 15% Nylon and 10% Cashmere!!

You will have the softest socks/scarf/shawl on the block!

The colorway I received is called “Chewies” and I would love to figure out what that might refer to. If you have any clue leave me a comment below.

The yarn is a nice fingering weight with over 400 yards per hank so this is great for knit or crochet.

But wait! There’s more! We also get two patterns for each Knitcrate. One in knit:

This month it is the Minty Fresh Shawl from designer Tiaga Hilliard.

A beautiful lacy shawl that would work with your summertime beach outfit.

And a crochet pattern:

Lemoncello by designer Kahlurah Hudson (love her name!)

A cute lacy poncho that would be a perfect swimsuit topper.

You’re Gonna Wanna See This ~ Coolest Caddy Ever!!!

So what’s better than a yarn bowl, or a project bag?

One that is both!

Say what?

How can a yarn bowl be a project bag you ask.

Let me show you…

I present to you, the Lazadas Multi-purpose Project Caddy.

Open: You have a handy yarn bowl complete with yarn guiding holes in the side.

Closed: You can grab what you are working on and take it with you without ever having to transfer your project to another container!

The bowl/bag is made of ultra-lightweight, flexible silicone, so your yarn will not snag or get caught. It also comes in three super cute colors and holds quite a lot of yarn.

I’m so in love with this caddy that I can’t say enough good things about it. Check out my video below to see all my thoughts on this awesome product and see it in action. Or go get your own here right now!

(Much thanks to Lazadas Knitting Accessories for providing this product for review)

So, first up are my top 6 cat related awesomeness finds from Knit Picks. (ad links below)

Manos Del Uruguay Serena Yarn Review

manos del uruguay serena yarn
The color is so pretty!

Check out this beautiful yarn that I received from Fairmount Fibers, the Manos Del Uruguay Serena yarn.

First off, the colorways in this yarn are amazing! They have literally over 40 different colors to choose from. The yarn is kettle dyed so it has that nice heathered look that makes your projects looks so special.

How pretty is that?

The yarn itself, is a unique blend of 60% baby alpaca and 40% pima cotton. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that combination before it is so interesting. It is great for scarves and shawls because it will drape beautifully. And it is so squishy soft! See my video below for some swatches I worked up in the yarn and how I liked working with it.

Here’s some more info on the yarn:

Yardage: Approx. 170 yds / 155 m per 1.75 oz / 50 g
Weight: Sport to DK
Gauge: Serena’s gauge is very versatile, from 4 1/2 stitches per inch (SPI) all the way up to 7 SPI
Needle Size: US 4 – 6 / 3.5 – 4 mm
Care Instructions: Hand wash in cool water. Dry flat.

Another awesome thing about this yarn is that the name of the company Manos Del Uruguay translates to Hands of Uruguay which is exactly who makes it.  Manos yarns are made by hand by skilled artisans in cooperatives located throughout Uruguay. Every skein purchased helps a woman in Uruguay support her family, and each skein is signed by the artisan so that you know who made your yarn and which village it came from.

An artist at work.

2018 is the 50th anniversary of Manos yarns! Fairmount Fibers we will be celebrating with some giveaways and special colorways so you might want to go follow them on their social media so you get notifications when the giveaways are happening.

You can find them on FacebookTwitterInstagramPinterest and Ravelry.

Fairmount Fibers is the North American Distributor of Manos del Uruguay yarns who provided this product for review. They have a beautiful website with tons of free patterns. Like this one that was made in Serena yarn.
