Tips & Tricks for the December 2017 KNITCRATE Membership

image

I lived in Montral for ten years, and one of the most fun things about learning French was figuring out all manner of knitting terms so I could follow French patterns! Well, I was proud of those French lessons when I opened this months KnitCrate and saw a gorgeous marled yarn perfectly named La Brebis Fluffy Wool.

Ewe know you want to know what that means! Yes, a Brebis is a female sheep, or ewe, in French. This new yarn line is all about celebrating natural and raw fibers. To get its characteristic marbling, Fluffy Wool combines undyed wool from sheep of different coat colors into a bulky, 1-ply yarn.

Butterfly Boxes 2017 Update

Wow - what a year its been!

image

First, thank you. We cant say that enough! When KNITCRATE announced that Butterfly Boxes would be their charity of the year back in January, we were thrilled. But we didnt really know what to expect. We thought we might see a few items trickle in here or there. We thought subscribers might send one item and call it good.

But you surprised us! Weve received dozens of items, and most packages have contained multiples. Packages have come from international subscribers. Theyve come with notes telling us that the subscriber was also an immigrant or refugee. Theyve come with items made by both the subscriber and her daughter. Theyve come with your very best work. We are grateful and so honored to be able to share your talents with those who have been arriving in the last few months.

We thought you might want to hear a bit about those who are receiving your gifts. You might be aware that the number of refugees arriving in the US has dropped this year. But some are still arriving, and weve had the privilege of being at the airport to greet many of them.
