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?

I sent my request to the awesome husband and wife team of Brian and Makenzie and they said, “just make another video and we’ll send you a hook.”
I said, “You bet!”
I chose my size and wood and told them which topper I liked and I left the rest up to them. I got a custom-made hook that I love so much! I’m not giving anything else away though. If you want to see which wood and design I received and all the awesome features of the hook, you’ll have to check out the video below.
I was sent a Dye Box from the folks over at BQueen Collection to try out and give my honest opinion.
What is a Dye Box you ask?
I’ll let BQueen break it down for you:
Our BQueen Collection Dye Box is a simple DIY kit for dyeing your own yarn naturally. By taking out some of the preliminary steps for you, we make it easy yet very rewarding to find color on a bare hank.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX:
At least 100g of quality yarn, ready to dye (we’ll change up the fiber content and yarn weight too!)
Every month is a different surprise yarn color
Natural Dye, already measured out specifically for your yarn in a cute little cork bottle
Your dye tools, consisting of nitrile gloves, stirring utensils, and a paper cup for mixing
What they don’t tell you is how addicting this is. My surprise color was just that — a total surprise. I had no idea the color in the bottle would change so dramatically. Check out the video below for a full reveal of the box and see the color change.
It was so simple and so fun, I loved the process of seeing what I was going to get, not only in the box, but the yarn color that results from the dyeing. The package was so beautiful and well thought out. You really didn’t need anything extra besides the pot to “cook” your yarn in. Now I have a beautiful, high quality hank of yarn to make a project with.
The Dye Box is available as a monthly subscription. This was such a great first dyeing experience, I would love to do it every month.
If you’ve ever wanted to try dyeing, or know someone who does, this would make an awesome gift. I think you will love creating your own custom hank.
They Don’t Just Sell Dye Boxes Either
They also sell crochet hooks!!!
There is a reason they call themselves the BQueen. If you notice the ends of each of the crochet hooks look just like queen pieces from chess. I have one of these on their way and I cannot wait.
You can choose your wood, hook size and topper and they will custom make the hook for you.
And if you notice in the picture, this may be the first wood hook that I know that does this, but they include a thumb rest on the hook so that you can easily orientate yourself without having to look at the hook. Such a great idea. I don’t have any other wood hooks that include this.
Didn’t You Say I Could Get 10% Off And Win A Dye Box?
I don’t want to give away what I got, but it is a super popular kit that Knitcrate sells on their website. Check out the video if you want to see what I got. There is also a cameo of the Critsucess counter ring in there if you want to see it in action.
If you are interested in learning to knit, I highly recommended the Knitcrate Newbies kit at Knitcrate.com. It has helped me out immensely and I’m only 2 months in. Check out what they sent me this month and what I made with it in the video below.
