August "Artisan" Crate Reveal!

August "Artisan" Crate Reveal!:

image

It’s time for another fun month of our KNITCRATE Artisan Crate! We know you’re just as excited as we are about Fall being right around the corner and prime knitting season getting started (sorry, those of you in the opposite hemisphere – we can’t help it!) It’s still just a touch early for us to break out Pumpkin Spice lattes or scarves, though. But it’s jusr early enough to start planning knitting projects, right?

We picked two colors to fit with our Vintage theme: Mountie Mango, which is an incredibly flattering coral pink, and Bison, which is an olive-toned neutral.

Each Artisan Crate comes jam-packed with 3 balls of Sugar Bush’s extra fine super bulky merino wool in either of the colorways pictured. They also come with 4 sassy postcards by Red Fox Designs as well as one beginner Texto Cowl Pattern and one intermediate/advanced Avantage triangle scarf pattern. Scroll to take a closer look at this month’s goodies!

This seems to get...

Let’s Face It – It’s All About the Yarn

image

Yes, that’s what we really think about – opening a KnitCrate to see which plush eye-grabbing yarn is lying in wait inside! I’ve gotten to the point where I open the box and use the enclosed intro and pattern cards to shield my eyes and stretch out the surprise.

The Evolution of Knitting in the USA

The Evolution of Knitting in the USA:

I’ve been knitting for over ten years, and I’ve also been the director of our local historical museum for the past four years. But, until recently, I hadn’t thought about putting my two loves together and looking into the history of knitting. As a product of today’s world, I suppose I just thought knitting was a fun hobby to keep my fidgety hands busy, and I...
