For Sock Crate this month, we switched up the bases a little bit and sent you a new favorite of mine: Delight Sport. If you got our Delight Worsted in a past KnitCrate, you’ll know that the Delight ‘family’ means bouncy-spun, 100% Superwash Merino: super soft and rich in color. This month’s colorway is called Strawberries and is inspired by the rich reds and pinks of early-season berries.
