Knitcrate August 2018 Reveal

Knitcrate Indigo Glow

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

This month’s theme is Indigo Glow.

Instead of a regular card like previous months, this month’s them information came in a booklet that also contained both of the free patterns from this month. More on those in a minute, first the yarn!

This month I received Uru Yarn in a beautiful turquoise with deep indigo flecks.

Just look at how pretty the color is!

The colorway I received is Undertow and the yarn is a 100% Superwash Merino in a fingering weight. Each of the two skeins contains 417 yards so it’s perfect for either a knit or crochet project.

Then we can get to the patterns!!

Two beautiful shawl patterns came with the crate this month.

Gullywasher by Carissa Browning and Caribbean Escape by Jennifer Dickerson. Both beautiful, lightweight shawls that will make a great transition from summer to fall. Which one is your favorite?

Mardi Gras Vibes With This Month’s Knit Crate

Knitcrate July 2018!!!

I just got my July 2018 Knitcrate basic membership in the mail… finally after a little mishap with the mailbox.

It took a couple of days for the mailman to realize that I wasn’t going to be able to get this out.

Once I was able to actually get the box in my hands, I was able to see the theme.

The theme this month is Modern Primary.

Explore a fresh look at the familiar rainbow with bold intense color!

I love all things rainbow, so I was really excited to see what the yarn would be.

The yarn this month is from Knitologie and I’m loving the purples, blues and golds that are looking like a Mardi Gras parade.

The variegated yarn has a nice twist to keep pilling down.

I received colorway “Dashboard” and the yarn is a squishy soft medium worsted 100% Superwash Merino.

180 yards per the two hanks you receive means you can easily make a scarf in either knit or crochet.

Then came the patterns:

 

First the knit Beachball Cowl by Virginia Sattler-Keimer, a fun lacy cowl perfect for the summer.

Then the crocheted Yoga Socks by Laura Bain, a comfy pair of open-toed socks to use on the mat.

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.

Motif of the Month and 4th Month Knitcrate Newbies

I’ve been busy this past month remodeling our kitchen, pantry and laundry room (still not done). So, though I did upload the motif of the month yesterday (which was the last day of April), I only had time today to put out a post today. So here is the “April” motif:

square

This is the Traveling Square Motif and it’s made with super bulky yarn. I used a smaller hook to make it very dense and warm. You can use a larger hook to give more drape to the square.
