May will be here before you know it! Let’s take a look at what to expect this May.
Knit & Crochet Club Theme
Embrace the peace of nature with our Happy Little Skeins theme. This month we celebrate creating your own little world with a laid back positive energy. The colorways shared with our skeins this month would be welcome in any painted landscape.

Audine Wools Chill is a lusciously soft worsted weight blend of 90% Suri Alpaca and 10% Cashmere. If you’ve never worked with Suri before, you are in for a treat! Suri alpaca fiber is smoother than Huacaya and is very silky. Combined with cashmere, you’ll kick back and chill with each 150 yds (137 m) skein.
KnitCrate Knit & Crochet Club April 2021 Colorways
Members will receive 2 matching skeins in one of these 6 colorways.
Let’s Get Crazy: This warm lavender with a hint of blue brings a lightness to both yarn and paint color palettes.
Water’s Like Me, It’s Lazy: Serene rippling lake waves come to mind with this deep cadet blue. It may be always looking for the easiest way to do things, but we’re quite okay with that.
Happy Little Tree: What would our collection be without a few happy little trees? A deep forest green, this shade contrasts well with several of this month’s colorways.
Beauty is Everywhere: Beauty abounds in this deep maroon shade with bits of burgundy flecks.
A Little Cabinectomy: Is that a little cabin I spy back in the woods in shades of van dyke brown and burnt sienna? This warm and gentle bark-brown is peeking out from the trees.
Clouds are Very Very Free: Just the tiniest bit of bright red in the titanium white is what we find in this gray shade with the tiniest hint of pink. It’s perfect when your project needs happy little clouds that are very free floating in the sky.

Sock Knit & Crochet Club + Malabrigo Partner Crate Theme
Bright fields of flowers blooming and waving in the wind welcome spring. This vibrant rebirth injects new life into the season, putting a bounce in our step and inspiring this month’s Petal theme.
Sock Knit & Crochet Club
Kick off your shoes this summer with Vidalana Tiptoe Sock, a fingering weight blend of 45% Superwash Merino Wool, 40% Linen, 15% Nylon. With heathering from the linen, each 100g skein will give you 400 yds (366m) for creating socks that are ideal for wearing on porches or decks when you’re knitting on warm Spring days. A little note: you may find that choosing a sock size one size smaller than your usual will work best for this yarn.
Sock Knit & Crochet Club Members will receive 1 skein in one of these 3 colorways.
Not a Cloud in the Sky: Clear and crisp skies bring inspiration to this bright turquoise colorway.
Tiptoe Through the Tulips: Floral visions fill our minds with this muted red-orange shade, similar to those you find in Cairo, Ballerina, and Orange Princess tulips.
Linen Spray: This pale yellow-green is conjures images of freshly sprouted leaves as the noon sun shines down.
