KnitCrate Review – May 2017

By Lauren

knitcrate box contents may 2017How fun are the vibrant colors in this month’s KnitCrate?  This month was inspired by the night jungle, and I am totally in love with this theme!

The featured yarn this month is from Tanis Fiber Arts, an organic machine washable worsted weight merino wool yarn, in the “Iris” colorway.  It is hand dyed and absolutely gorgeous – I am especially in love with the purples and teals in this yarn, and can’t wait to see how it knits up with all of the other colors!

There are 2 intriguing patterns is this box, both by designer Jennifer Hagan.  The beginner pattern is the “Honeycomb Cap” (pictured above), and the intermediate/advanced pattern option is the “Sawtooth Shawlette” (pictured below).  I love both of these patterns for this yarn and am not sure which one I’ll choose!

The knitting tool featured this month is a double-pointed needle holder by The Steady Hand Shop on Etsy.  This little pouch is super cute and a great way to keep your DPNS organized!
