I love this thick, squishy heathered yarn that I got in my KnitCrate this 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  at least 2 exclusive patterns (at least 1 knitting pattern, at least 1 crochet pattern). All KnitCrates ship worldwide with free shipping and handling. Members also receive reward points and discounts towards future purchases.

Use Coupon Code “YAYFORYARN20” for 20% off your first KnitCrate.

Each month’s crate has a theme, and this month’s theme features festive, wintery colors.  In the KnitCrate Membership for December, the crate includes 2 skeins of one of four different colorways: “Blue Spruce”, “Clementine”, “Black Cherry”, or “Triple Lux”, which I received.

The yarn is Vidalana “Heathered Chunky”, a Chunky weight Peruvian Highland Wool, hand-dyed in the beautiful heathered colorways featured.  The colorway I received is a blend of soft grays and periwinkle blues.  The texture is smooth, dense, and almost rope-like, but still soft and pliable.

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 (Snow Bonnet by Abbey Swanson), 1 knitting pattern, (Breaks in the Lines Cowl by Tina Tse), and a sock knitting pattern (Holiday Candy Socks by Myla Vayner).  I love all of the beautiful photos and patterns in the booklet, but I am most excited about the extra bonus in this crate!  Normally, the crate just includes the yarn and patterns, but this month, it included an adorable enamel pin that looks like a yarn ball with knitting needles through it!  (Hint: it’s actually the KnitCrate Logo) How cute!

I can’t wait to make something from this beautiful yarn!  I think I will make the Breaks in the Lines Cowl from the pattern booklet.

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

Happy Yarning! 🙂
