The August KnitCrate yarn is so pretty!  I received a beautiful speckled colorway of URU Yarn Speckled Singles (called Undertow), and I am so excited to begin working on this month’s project! (as soon as I finish the project from last month…)

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 “Indigo Glow”.  All crates for this month feature cool hues and deep, saturated tones.  In the KnitCrate Membership for August, the crate includes 2 skeins of one of four different colorways: “Highlight”, “Shibori”, “Silence”, or “Undertow”, which I received.

The yarn is “URU Yarns” Speckled Singles: a single-ply, Fingering Weight, 100% Superwash Merino Wool yarn, hand-dyed in the beautiful speckled colorways featured.  The colorway I received is a beautiful Cerulean Blue, with Black speckles, and is incredibly soft.  I haven’t really worked with single-ply yarns before, so I can’t wait to see what texture it gives the finished project.

The crate also includes 2 exclusive patterns, the Gullywasher Shawl by Carissa Browning, and the Caribbean Escape Wrap by Jennifer Dickerson.  I think I am going to crochet the Caribbean Escape Wrap, and join the ends together to make a lightweight, lacy cowl.

Thanks to KnitCrate for sending me this crate to review!

Stay tuned for photos of the finished cowl!

Happy Yarning! 🙂
