I only vaguely knew about Knitcrate before I was contacted by them on Ravelry about possibly including a couple of my patterns in their Main box. Since my business is knitting design, I have never had the chance to try any of the knitting subscriptions and knew not to tempt myself. I'm usually working on my own projects and haven't time for more...unfortunately. Because, what fun!
Once we got the collaboration worked out, I impatiently waited for my month to come to be a part of the fun. It was so exciting to see it finally happen! Then I wanted one for myself, so I could see just how awesome it is. Well, they sent me one! Let's have a look.
What a treat to see this little teal box waiting for me in the mailbox.
As I broke the seal and started to open the box, I saw the appropriate hashtags--always important!
Then I opened the lid and peeled back the tissue inside and feasted my eyes on all the goodies--the main card with this month's inspirational description on front and the contents list and discount codes on back, the pattern card with free download links to my Honeycomb Cap and Sawtooth Shawlette, a cute dpn holder from The Steady Hand,
two skeins of lovely Tanis Fiber Arts Purewash Worsted in Iris,
(let's look closer at that)
and this little card to help donate something to those in need.
That's so cool!
The box even matches my current design work in progress. I love teal!
And guess what else? Right now you can get 20% off your first month if you want to try KnitCrate for yourself! Just use my code FIG20 when you get to the checkout and go here to try it!
That discount will only work for recurring monthly subscriptions, though, because the three-month prepaid and the yearly are already discounted for you. Isn't that nice?
The KnitCrate folks are just great, and they're really on the ball scouring the world for knitting and crochet treats for you. Thanks, KnitCrate, for making yarny pursuits even more fun!
