October 2018 Artisan Crate Reveal

Were pretty sure our members match our excitement when it comes to the Artisan Crate each month–after all, who doesnt love seeing how different dyers and designers interpret the beautiful themes? Octobers Crate features the work of the very talented Yarn Fairy and the Pixies, a brand dedicated to bringing whimsy, magic and fun in to your knitting and crocheting projects. This month, theyve helped us ship everyone in the club two skeins of ultra-squishy, 100% Super Fine Merino. This 21.5 Micron count Merino (thats technical speak for SUPER SOFT) is the ultimate in squishable Sport weight, and each skein of Elf Kisses is loaded with 288 yards, so youre getting 576 yards to play with.

The colorway they designed for us is called Brushed Steel, and is a soft gray with purple undertones that show up beautifully during your knitting process. Youll be enchanted watching them appear throughout either of this months beautifully designed knitting projects from designer Lana Jois.

First up, the Diamond Lace hat is a beginner-friendly introduction to lace:

Then, you have the First Frost cowl, a poncho-lette designed to keep your shoulders snuggly as Fall begins to appear:

Both of these patterns are included in the printed Knitcrate INSPIRATIONS magazine were popping in every crate this month, or you can download the digital e-book version by plugging in the link on the table of contents page in the issue.

For your extra this month, were adding to your needle collection again–with a size US 7, 60 circular needle. Ready to try magic loop? Skip the 24 and double points Lana calls for with the cowl, and give this all-in-one method a try instead.

If you havent signed up for this months Artisan Crate, now is the time! This squishy goodness wont last for long. Dont forget to pop over and see whats brewing in our Ravelry group this month, either. See you there!
