Happy New Year! I am so excited for 2018, and to start the year off with some new KnitCrate goodies!
I was so excited when I received this month’s KnitCrate package – the yarn in this month’s Artisan Crate is absolutely stunning! I received 3 skeins of Salt River Mills “Suri AcceSuriEs” in the shade “Blue Spruce”, a really stunning greenish-blue color. I’m not always this biggest fan of green (even as a redhead, I just usually don’t think it looks good on me!) but when I held this color up to my face, I thought “oooooh”, I definitely want a scarf made out of this!
This happens to be the perfect yarn for a scarf or neck item too – the fiber content is 75% Suri (Suri is a breed of Alpaca) and 25% wool, and it definitely has the wonderful characteristics of Alpaca – it is luxuriously soft and fuzzy! Each 75 gram skein is 215 yards, so you can really make a substantial piece with all of this yarn!
There are 2 scarf patterns included in this crate by designer Jennifer Wood, the “Elementary Wrap“, a beginner pattern, and the “Tracery Wrap“, a lace scarf that is Intermediate/Advanced. Both are very wide and long, and would be ideal accessories to keep you warm this Winter!
Also, as a fun goodie, there is a super cute matching project bag. I don’t know about you, but I can ALWAYS use another project bag! I always have multiple projects going at the same time, and project bags are the perfect way to stay organized. I love that it matches this month’s yarn, if only all of our project bags could match our knitting!
