October 2018 KnitCrate Unboxing!

I received my KnitCrate for October!  This yarn is just what I was hoping for!

KnitCrate is a monthly yarn subscription service, delivering high-quality, hand-dyed yarn to your doorstep. They offer several different crates, with different types of yarn and projects. The crate shown in the video above is the KnitCrate Membership, which includes 2 skeins of premium yarn in the featured colorway, and 2 exclusive patterns (1 knitting pattern, 1 crochet pattern). All KnitCrates ship worldwide with free shipping and handling. Members also receive reward points and discounts towards future purchases.

Each month’s crate has a theme, and this month’s theme is “Verdigris”.  In the KnitCrate Membership for October, the crate includes 2 skeins of one of four different colorways: “Olive”, “Ash”, “Blush”, or “Mouse”, which I received.

The yarn is Audine Wools “Halo DK”, a DK weight blend of Alpaca, Merino Wool, and Nylon, hand-dyed in the beautiful tonal colorways featured.  The colorway I received is a lovely, soft, light grey, with lighter and darker tonal variations.  I have been wanting to get some grey tonal yarn for awhile, and this color is just what I have been looking for!  I love the texture and depth this yarn has from the tonal dyeing and double-twist strand.

This month, the crate included a small magazine-style pattern booklet, including ALL of the patterns from every crate available!  So this month, I got 6 patterns instead of 2.  The booklet also includes information on the care of non-superwash yarns, as well as bios of the designers and yarn dyers from all of October’s crates.  I love all of the beautiful photos and patterns in the booklet.  I also love that you can also download the book digitally on Ravelry, as my package evidently got wet in the rain and one corner of my book was quite soggy.  🙂  Luckily, the yarn was not wet.

 

UPDATE: I decided to design my own pattern from this yarn!  Get the FREE Pattern for the Boundless Cowl by clicking here!

Thanks to KnitCrate for sending me this crate to review!

Happy Yarning! 🙂
