It’s time to get excited! I got my July Knit Crate in the mail yesterday. As I mentioned before, I decided to sign up for Knit Crate Mini’s. I got my July pack in the mail and first of all those mini skeins are too cute! Second, the colors are WOW! I am in love. I do have eye candy to share but first lets give some love. So these are hand dyed 100% Superwash Merino Wool. The brand is Dream in Color, these are their Smooshy Sock Weight yarn. Let me tell you it is just exactly that, smooshy and soft. Ok, now for the eye candy!
I’ve broken down and signed up for Knit crate too! I can’t tell you how long I resisted because my budget is already so tight. Oh well! Maybe I’ll do my own comparison and choose which I like better. Though of course the one I really want Keep reading!
I finally bit the bullet and signed up for yarnbox. I am SUPER excited. Though it is dampened a little bit with the news that my first box won’t ship until July 20th. That’s ok, it will make it even more of a surprise.
From what I’ve seen around it looks like it tends to be two skeins and a pattern or two. Shipping is included. What I look forward too most is finding new yarns I fall in love with.
Also, here to hoping its not all variegated to the max! I have nothing against variegated but I prefer it to be more muted like ranges of the same color. Expect lots of pictures and feel free to share your yarnbox experiences!
Next Post peek: Some DIY table top hat displays.
I missed last weeks post, forgive me! I AM sticking to my resolutions. This weekend I’ve been on the hunt for blog planner type printables. It took some scouring because there are so many out there but like 85% of them are out dated. Which sucks when you see one that you fall in love with because then it turns out to be last years calendar. Then you dig through their site to find out they don’t have any 2014 printable. Sigh. I did find two though I think will work well. I actually am going to be using some of both. After you look at the designs you might cringe but don’t worry the pages wont be side by side haha.
It’s 2014! This last year flew by and from what I hear they just get faster as you get older. I thought I would take little time to create a list of goals for the new year. Most of them have to do with the website and the etsy shop. But that’s good right?
No, I’m not suffering from a split personality – muahahahaha – not often anyway. I am working on a group of patterns focused around a split of two colors. The first is a simple scarf. I love the contrast of the creamy white and the spiced pumpkin color.
The rest in the works is an infinity scarf, a wrap and arm warmers. These are the three I’ve envisioned so far so more may be coming. I hope to have these out by the end of January to help us wrap 2014 in warmth!
The scarf pattern is pretty easy and straight forward. I think it will end up being an ambassadress and appear first in a Free-Pattern-Friday kind of way. Look for that in the next couple weeks and keep checking back for updates on the others.
