It’s May, and that means that we get to do our favorite thing again: share what’s coming in all of your crates this month. For those of you subscribed to the Membership Crate, this month’s yarn is from La Brebis, our house brand dedicated to unique, undyed yarns that celebrate the beauty of natural fiber. Each skein of Marled Sock is 440 yards, so between the two skeins you’ll have 880 of this lightweight, 4-ply fingering yarn to work with.
The patterns this month are perfectly suited to this yarn, creating lightweight fabrics that you’ll love wearing on the chillier Spring days and will reach for again in early Fall. Daxis, a triangular scarf created by designer Pariser Landluft, has a bit of all-over, geometric texture (a theme this month with our patterns), and is a classic wrap with endless styling possiblities.
The crochet pattern this month is a Cabled Clutch by designer Marie Segares of The Underground Crafter. Marie created this awesome clutch perfect for keeping your pattern, notions, and bits and bobs out of the rest of your bag, for taking along as a casual evening accessory, or using as a great Kindle or journal cover! It features front post crochet cables and all-over texture, along with a cute picot edge and button adornment.
Tell us what you think of this month’s Membership Crate over in the Ravelry group, where we’ll be running a Knit-and-Crochet-a-long all month long!
