January 2021 Early Preview

Who’s ready to join us with a peek into 2021?

For our January crates, we’re excited to work with Margaret Olander of Sheepishly Sharing. Margaret is a maker’s maker stitching up crochet, knit, and sewing projects on her Sheepishly Sharing YouTube channel. She also shares other DIY crafts, recipes, and helpful tips through her blog keeping us informed about her adventures along the way. Margaret worked with us on the colors you’ll find in this month’s Membership Crates as well as created a fabulous crochet pattern for us!

Next month, we are exploring hazy hues in our January theme. Shadows serve to highlight reflections, and this month’s crates explore a palette of deep, slightly decayed tones, paired with warm blushes, reds, and the palest pinks and greens.

Barbara Streisand once sang “On a clear day, you can see forever” and our Dawn colorway for the All Natural color vibe is just that. This color is a soft clear blue full of those early morning beginnings.

Mrs. Crosby Travels Partner Crate, Quarterly Membership

The ever-talented Mrs. Crosby continues to receive commissions that allow her to safely travel during this time. While she’s keeping her latest work a secret from us, she’s been gracious enough to share a bit about her latest destination for our early preview. Mrs. Crosby takes us along as she travels to Iceland and in return, brings us beautiful skeins of yarn inspired by the Aurora Borealis. 

Mrs. Crosby Nóttina, with its blend of 60% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon, and 20% Stellina, has just enough sparkle for an evening under the stars. Hand dyed in the exclusive colorway Ratiljóst, each skein is 400 yds (366m) of soft and glimmering fingering weight yarn, and you’ll have 3 fabulous skeins for your next project.
