It’s the third day of August and the first day of reveals, starting as usual with MEMBERSHIP CRATE. This month’s theme, *Indigo Glow*, is all about stunning oceanic tones, deep teals, seashell pinks and stonewashed grays. For Membership, you’ll be getting one of these four stunning colors (two skeins in your shipment) on our Uru.Yarn Speckled Singles base:
Colors (from left/bottom to right/top):
Undertow: a bright cerulean blue with red, burgundy and purple speckles
Highlight: a soft seafoam with magenta speckles
Shibori: an indigo, denim blue with true blue speckles
Silence: a misty gray with black speckles
This yarn is 417 yards (381 meters), fingering weight, and is singles spun. Even though it is 100% Superwash Merino, the best way to care for it is a hand-wash and lay flat to dry. Think of the superwash more as insurance in case someone in your family throws it in the wash–singles yarns are delicate and would prefer to be washed gently!
You might notice something new with our box photo this month–the card looks different! That’s because the card is not a card, but a *brochure*. After many, many requests, we’ve decided to include printed patterns in all of our shipments. Don’t worry, Ravelry fans–nothing is happening to the download codes! In fact, they’re more accessible and easy to find than ever in this brochure. The brochures will also include more information on your designers (and dyers and extras, for the Artisan Crates)! We think you’re going to love them.
The patterns this month are gorgeous and both are worked in Undertow. Caribbean Escape is an expansive crochet shawl with epic fringe, designed by Jennifer Dickerson:
Gullywasher is a triangle shawl with great texture, designed by Carissa Browning, is named for a riotous downpour (and is probably the perfect thing to knit through those end of summer thunderstorms)!
