KnitCrate Membership UNBOXING: May | June | July 2018 + August revealed



Hello :-) I would like to tell you something about my experience with the KnitCrate Membership subscription. I got three boxes so far (the first one in May) and I have to say that I'm eagerly waiting for the next crates. It is really nice idea to subscribe the monthly boxes. Waiting for revealing the new themes in next months is really thrilling. Below you find the KnitCrate Membership overview from May to July 2018 + peek at August crate. You can also watch UNBOXING from these three monthly crates on my YouTube channel.


If you don't know what KnitCrate Membership subscription is and how it works, you can read the introduction by clicking the link below:

I start overview from the latest crate:

July KnitCrate Membership


Theme for July was MODERN PRIMARY.


In July KnitCrate offered four colorways:
I received two skeins of School Zone. The color is even more beautiful in the real world than in the photos.

 
You can read information about the Knitologie yarn on the label:

colorway: School Zone
Bouncy Worsted: 100% Superwash Merino Wool
Worsted Weight
180 yds (164 m) / 100 g (4 oz.)
suggested needle size US 8 (5 mm)
all Knitologie yarns are exclusively hand dyed for KnitCrate
Lot: 205921

I like the color very much and I'm going to use the yarn for knitting pattern: Beachball Cowl by Virginia Sattler-Reimer. Because I love crocheting and I'm quite advanced in that field, I would like to improve my knitting skills. So thank you KnitCrate for giving me a possibility to work with your beautiful yarns! :-)

The second attached pattern in that crate was Yoga Socks by Laura Bain. It is fine but not useful for me - if you practice the yoga or contemporary dance or you have cold feet, crochet the socks!


June KnitCrate Membership  

Theme for June: ICE SCREAM.



There were four summer colors of yarn Vidalana Sumptuous.


Chewies - a bright, seafoam-mint green
Ice Pop - a pastel, cool blue
Bananas - a vibrant, true yellow
Smacker - an iconic fire-engine red

I received the yellow one - Bananas

There is info on the label:
colorway: Bananas
Softest Sock: 75% Superwash Merino, 15% Nylon, 10% Cashmere
Fingering Weight
437 yds (400 m) / 100 g (4 oz.)
suggested needle size US 0-1 (2-2.5 mm)
all Vidalana yarns are exclusively hand dyed for KnitCrate
Lot.: 202595


It's not my color and I won't feel good wearing such bright yellow clothes, so I decided to use the yarn for my amigurumi project. I would like to crochet amigurumi yellow moon or sun using the yarn. But I need time to finish it because I'm working on a few projects simultaneously. As always - lack of time.

June crate includes two patterns:
  • crochet pattern Lemoncello by Kahlurah Hudson - a poncho with tassels
  • knit pattern Minty Fresh by Taiga Hilliard - a lace shawl with fringed edge





May KnitCrate Membership 

In May crate (actually I received it in June because it was sent in the end of May) I got my first box and I was so happy with the theme: CONTEMPORARY. Definitely my theme ;-)
I started making reviews of KnitCrate Membership on my YouTube channel.
That crate contained 2 skeins of yarn La Brebis.


There is info on the label about the yarn:
colorway: Gray Twist
Marled Sock: 40% Merino Wool, 40% Peruvian Highland Wool, 20% Nylon
Fingering Weight
437 yds (400 m) / 100 g (4 oz.)
suggested needle size US 0-1 (2-2.5 mm)
all La Brebis yarns are naturally colored, each skein is unique
Lot.: 202593

May crate included two patterns:
  • crochet Cabled clutch by Marie Segares
  • knit Daxis by Susanne Hogl
I'm currently working on the second one - knitted shawl Daxis. It is my first so huge knitted project and it goes slowly. So be patient. When I finished it, I will definitely show you :-)

AUGUST crate revealed

And what is going to be next? The August theme crate has been already revealed: INDIGO GLOW.
See below - yarns have beautiful cool colors:


1. Undertow: a bright cerulean blue with red, burgundy and purple speckles
2. Highlight: a soft seafoam with magenta speckles
3. Shibori: an indigo, denim blue with true blue speckles
4. Silence: a misty gray with black speckles
(Source of the photos and description: KnitCrate blog)


I like all of them so much but for me the most unique is no 2: Highlight colorway (with magenta speckles). It would be nice to have it in my collection but probably I will get the other one and it's also fine ;-) I look forward to receiving the crate soon and make for you the yarn review - unboxing will be available on my channel. So subscribe if you would like to be up-to-date.
