Each month’s crate has a theme, and this month’s theme is “Take Wing”.  All yarn colorways this month are inspired by beautiful birds.  In the KnitCrate Membership for August, the crate includes 2 skeins of one of three different colorways: “Bohemian Waxwing”, “European Robin”, or “Kestrel”, which I received.


The yarn is Knitologie Worsted, a super-squishy, worsted weight, Superwash Merino Wool.  It has a lovely softness, but holds its shape well.  The colorway is a unique combination I have never seen before: a soft, periwinkle blue, with violet, royal blue, and a beautiful coppery-pink.



All KnitCrate subscriptions now include an extra!  This is one of the recent changes to the subscription, as we used to only get an extra for special occasions (like in the December crate) or one-skein crates (like March or May).  For August, I got two white stickers with a turquoise KnitCrate logo.

The crate includes a small pattern booklet, including the patterns from the Membership crate and Sock Membership Crate.  This booklet contains 1 crochet pattern (Alpine Legwarmers by Ashlea Konecny) and 1 knitting pattern (Eklutna Lakeside Shawl by Mary Dickerson) for the Membership crate.  For the Sock crate, a sock knitting pattern (Plumage Socks by Kim Driggs) is always included, but now, each sock crate also includes a crocheted sock or slipper pattern (Birds of a Feather Socks by Abbey Swanson).

I don’t know what I’ll make with this yarn yet, but I am loving this colorway!  It’s such a unique color combination that is unlike any yarn I have ever seen in a craft store.  I can’t wait to find the perfect project for it!

Thanks so much to KnitCrate for sending me this crate to review!
