September 2018 KnitCrate Unboxing!

I got my KnitCrate for September!  The yarn is so incredibly squishy, and I can’t wait to make something from it!

Each month’s crate has a theme, and this month’s theme is “Dash Dot Dash”.  All crates for this month feature a modern palette with a graphic twist.  In the KnitCrate Membership for September, the crate includes 2 skeins of one of four different colorways: “Lavender”, “Night”, “Pimento”, or “Tapenade”, which I received.

The yarn is “Vidalana” Dream: a bouncy, Sport Weight blend of Superwash Merino Wool, Silk, and Cashmere, hand-dyed in the beautiful tonal colorways featured.  The colorway I received is a beautiful Olive Green, with lighter and darker tonal variegations, and is SUPER SQUISHY!  This is one of those yarns that is so soft, with just the perfect texture, that you can’t stop squeezing it. 🙂

The crate also includes 2 exclusive patterns, the knitted “Westwind” Shawl by Anne Podlesak, and the “Las Mananitas de Blanca” crocheted capelet by Cecilia Losada.  Although I usually make one of the projects from the included patterns, I’ve decided to design my own pattern with this yarn. UPDATE: See the patterns I designed with this yarn here!

Thanks to KnitCrate for sending me this crate to review!

Happy Yarning! 🙂
