Each month’s crate has a theme, and this month’s theme is “Entomology” (the study of insects). All yarns for this month feature colorways inspired by brightly-colored insects. In the KnitCrate Membership for April, the crate includes 2 skeins of one of two different colorways: “Leaf Eater”, or “Ladybug”, which I received.
The yarn is brand-new: Audine Wools “Sigh DK”, a DK weight blend of Merino Wool and Cashmere. I love when they send yarns with cashmere! Cashmere is sooooo soft and squishy, and if I don’t use the yarn right away, I leave it on my desk so I can squeeze it whenever I want. 😁 The colorway I received is a softer, slightly faded red. Even though it is a solid color, because it is hand-dyed, there are very slight variations in the color. It adds a little bit of depth, without being noticeably tonal or variegated. I always gravitate towards brighter colors, so I’m super happy with the colorway I got this month!
This month, the crate included a small pattern booklet, including the patterns from the Membership crate and Sock Membership Crate. This booklet contains 1 crochet pattern (Chrysalis Stole by Liliana Buce-Chmelko), 1 knitting pattern (Canopy Shawl by Destiny Meyer), and a sock knitting pattern (Undergrass by Stephanie Voyer). I love all of the beautiful photos, patterns, and information in the booklet. We also got several downloadable bonus knitting patterns, including the Hens & Chicks Shawl and the Caterpillar Tracks Cowl, both designed by Dallas Ann Prentice.
I haven’t decided what I’ll make with this yarn yet, but I can’t wait to find the perfect project for it!
Thanks so much to KnitCrate for sending me this crate to review!
