May 2013 Reveal

This month’s KnitCrate was designed to bring all KnitCraters together with a sense of community!  What better way than to participate in the Bee Keeper’s Quilt by Stephanie Dosen (a Tiny Owl Knits Pattern) for our knitters and the Hexapuff Lap Quilt by Julie Blagojevich for our crocheters — it’ll keep us all “busy as bees”. You’re sure to become addicted to continuing your project. . . not to worry because we recently launched KnitCrate Minis to satisfy!

We included everything our subscribers needed to start their projects out of the box, including Poly-Fil’s 100% Premium Blend fiberfill with a coupon when they need more (compliments of Fairfield World). The Vogue Knitting magazine and herbal tea by Mullein & Sparrow will help them relax when they need a break.  After they finish their quilts they can measure their progress with the included handmade Lantern Moon Bee Tape Measure.

We know from the fantastic feedback from our subscribers (click here for a sampling of testimonials) that our KnitCraters LOVE the wide variety of beautiful colorways and fantastic products in this month's KnitCrate. We are so happy to hear that subscribers are enjoying their May KnitCrates as much as we enjoyed curating it for them! We look forward to all KnitCraters sharing their progress on our Ravelry and Facebook pages.
