Huddle up! This month’s theme and yarns are celebrating our favorite squad – all of you!
We could think of no better yarn squad leader than Kristy Glass, and we’re excited to have her as our influencer partner this month. Since 2016, Kristy has been sharing her yarn adventures with us through her YouTube channel, Kristy Glass Knits, and introducing us to members of the fiber community both far and near. She interviews dyers, designers, and makers everywhere expanding our yarn-love horizons. Kristy’s exuberance for all things yarn has us inspired to get stitching and making pieces that bring us joy.
And this month, she’s collaborated with us to create all the colorways in our Membership Crate!
This month, we’re embracing makers everywhere with our theme, Squad Goals. Togetherness takes on new meaning for us as we gather both virtually and safely in person to create memories filled with laughter, joy, and stitches. Expect to see shades of coral, periwinkle, warm neutrals, and more that leave you energized, inspired, and knowing that you belong.
Now let’s meet this month’s yarn! Click below to watch the full reveal on Youtube.
Our December Membership yarn is Audine Wools Twinkle DK, a blend of 80% Merino Wool, 10% Cashmere, and 10% Stellina. These skeins have us starry-eyed with 250 yds per 100g skein. Your crate will arrive with 2 identical skeins to bring a little sparkle to your next project.
Energize Me: Squad Goals
A deep coral pink, this happy colorway is what we imagine joyous times with our squad looks like in yarn: bright, cheerful, a little daring, and strong knowing we can stitch anything with our favorite people by your side.
Chill Out: Knit Yorker
This soft and peaceful periwinkle is the perfect cool tone that works when layering with other colors. We’re picturing wearing this as an accessory along with our hot off the hooks and needles sweaters during our favorite New York fiber festivals.
All Natural: Rollerskates
This twinkly beigey-taupe has subtle yellow tones that remind us of the haze of evening light. It is a throwback to the days when we’d cruise the roller rink with our closest pals.

Energize Me: Bubblegum
Bubblegum, bubblegum in a dish - how many skeins do you wish? When we think of peppy pinks, this candy-inspired shade comes to mind. Remember the fun of sharing your favorite gum with a friend? Yarn is just as fun to share!
Chill Out: Wishlist
This shade is darker than you would expect for a tweedy blue but it works! The neps look like the tiniest, whispy clouds in a clear, deep blue sky.
All Natural: Hot Cocoa
We’ve captured a favorite winter warmer in this colorway with its pleasing chocolate brown tones. And those neps? We think they look like little marshmallows!
