Our Artisan Crates this month are just as stunning as the rest, albeit with a little less sparkle, which is good news for those of you concerned with glitter overload! For those of you not looking at shimmer and shine, you’ll still find treasure in your shipment, which features yarn from Done Roving Yarns. Frolicking Feet DK is made from wool sourced, milled, and dyed right here in the USA. It is 100% Merino Wool and has a whopping 350 yards per skein.
There are two possible colorways this month: Enchanted Dreams and Fantasy & Fairytales. Enchanted Dreams features a painterly blend of beautiful blues and greens, accented by the occasional splash of gold, rust, burgundy and orchid pink. Fantasy & Fairytales is a rich wine purple with gold, lavender, fuchsia, brown, and bright blue throughout.
Paula from Done Roving uses a very special dye technique that requires multiple processes, so the colors are really beautifully distributed and don’t behave like any other variegated yarn we’ve seen! You can really tell when you look at this month’s patterns knit up, both designed by Susan Gressman.
Spooning Crescents is a garter-stitch, short-row extravaganza that will work up quickly and really beautifully shows off Fantasy & Fairytales. This is our beginner level pattern, and yes, it is easier than it looks!
Susan’s intermediate pattern for this crate is called Lissome, and is a twirling, spiraling scarf-slash-shawlette that is the perfect accent on top of a sweater or with a jacket. Shown in Enchanted Dreams, you can get a good idea for how the yarn behaves with this photo:
The extra this month is a hilarious card perfect for giving that friend who is always asking, but isn’t really knitworthy! Designed by The Paper Violet, this card reads “Sorry, it’s just a card again”. Let them down easy, right?
We can’t wait to hear what you think of this crate’s contents and see what you make in the Ravelry group as this month’s crates begin arriving.
