KnitCrate Membership UNBOXING - September 2018

Hello, it's time for KnitCrate Membership unboxing :-) Once again I was surprised by bright color of yarn. I probably won't use this yarn color for making shawl etc., but this is really soft yarn and it would be a challenge for Amigurumi project. What I could make with the yarn color I've received? Any ideas?
Watch the KnitCrate September review here:

On KnitCrate blog we can read about the September theme:
The theme is Dash Dot Dash (morse code for K–K for Knitcrate)! Inspired by graphic prints, the transition from light and airy Summer & Spring fabrics to Fall ones, interesting material juxtapositions and pops of bright against dark, this month’s crate is a riot of rich, interesting colors.

This month KnitCrate prepared a game for you WHEEL OF YARN FORTUNE.

Look at the colorways this month:

The colors from left to right are:
  • Lavender (a dusty, soft purple),
  • Night (a rich, deep Navy),
  • Tapenade (golden olive green),
  • Pimento (cheery red-orange).

I've got PIMENTO colorway. Really interesting. I have a luck for bright colors :-)

There is information on the label:

Personally I love the Lavender colorway - I like the purple very much... maybe next time ;-)

Just to remind you: KnitCreate Membership subscribers will get two skeins and it costs only $24.99 for the monthly crate. Total retail value of the crate is $63, so it is cheaper than buying yarns individually. Shipping is free worldwide, you can unsubscribe anytime you want. For more read the information on KnitCrate website.

What is more, I've found two booklets in the box - one is for knitting and one is for crochet pattern. Booklets include printed patterns - that's great! You don't have to download the pattern, but you can, if you want to, following the download links.

  • Knitting pattern: Westwind by Anne Podlesak (sound like Slavic surname, don't you think? :-)) - it is shawl "features lace panels stacked together on a traditional, but ample, triangle shape". 
  • Crochet pattern: Las Mananitas de Blanca by Cecilia Losado - it is cape "designed for those first crisp mornings of Fall", as a memory of the designer grandma.
