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…)

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!
