Knitcrate June 2014 Reveal ~Hint~ Contains My Favorite Yarn Store Brand

Big Red Bag This Month

My Knitcrate this month was busting at the seams. It had so much good stuff that I thought I would share some of it with you. Read on to see what I’m giving away and what I’m keeping.

Check out the colors!
Check out the colors!

Well start off with the promo codes:

 

We’ve got 4 good ones this month:

30% off single self-published pattern at Carinaspencer.com. (value unlimited)

  • Her Rose and Bud Knit Beanie is amazing!

25% off at Crimsonorchiddesigns.com. (value unlimited)

  • They make the stitch markers you will see in a bit, plus lots of other fiber related goodies.

10% off orders at Soakwash.com. (value unlimited)

  • They make the hand lotion you will see in a bit, plus they make my favorite go to hand washing soak for all my hand washable projects.

10% off at bluemoonfiberarts.com. (value unlimited)

  • Beautiful yarns galore!
Win these!
Win these!

Free Patterns and Stitch Markers to Giveaway:

 

The free patterns (yes more than one) this month are the Knitcrate Yarn Bowl and Accessory Bag by Molly Conroy. ($9 value)

  • These are cool totes and the pack comes with an instructional video on felting.
  • I’ll be giving away my promo code to a lucky reader. See below on how to enter.

The fun extra are Stitch Markers by Crimson Orchid Designs as I stated above. ($8 value)

  • The set of six very cute stitch markers, unfortunately for me, can only be used with knit (crochet needs opening to attach and detach to projects) so I’ll be adding these into the giveaway below.
  • They are made with silver plating and feature Czech fired polish crystals in various colors.

 

Soak as a lotion.

Soothing Extra:

 

The soothing extra this month is a Handmaid Hand Cream by Soak. ($10 value)

  • Shea butter, olive oil, and vitamins A and E team up to nourish skin.
  • Has a sea breeze scent of Aquae
  • I’m usually very sneezy around strong scents (can’t go into a Bath and Body Works), but the Soak brand hand lotion is mild enough to not make me sneeze, but strong enough to keep the scent around for hours. I’m really loving it!

The Yarn:

 

I lucked out more than ever this month on my Knitcrate. I received three hanks of Malabrigo Worsted Weight Yarn. ($36 value)

  • Malabrigo is my favorite yarn store brand. It is the softest 100% merino wool with the most intense color palette. Just look at the apple green in the middle!
  • Plus it is very reasonably priced (for an independent yarn company). Each 210 yard hank is only $12 each. Which if you visit any local yarn stores regularly you will know that most independent yarns can run much more than that.
  • For special gifts that require a beautiful yarn, this is my go to brand. However, I think I will be making something for myself this time.

The Giveaway:

 

So I will be giving away the pattern pack and stitch markers to one reader (US residents only — sorry). To enter, leave a comment below on your favorite yarn brand.

Entries close June 30th midnight Pacific time. The winner will be announced July 1st, 2014.

Yes, 3 full hanks this month!

This month’s KnitCrate has made very happy.

Not only did they fill my bag with my favorite yarn colors, but they made my life so much easier!

They now list on their insert card what the value of everything included is. Makes my life so much easier. I used to have to go look it all up myself, now I can get the reveal out to you so much faster. So let’s dig in.

Free Patterns

2 Patterns this month!
2 Patterns this month!

KnitCrate gave us 2 patterns this month and they will be included in the giveaway that I will go into more detail down below. (value $13 for both)

These beautiful knit patterns are the kind that make me want to learn to knit better.

Promo Codes this month

The card also includes three promo codes that have various values depending on what you order from them. As always I don’t put the actual promo codes here because that would be wrong. I just let you know what you can look forward to if you were to subscribe.

  1. Buy 1 get 1 free from Mindy Wilkes.
  2. Spend $50 and get $10 or spend $100 get $25 off in the KnitCrate shop.
  3. Get any 3 patterns for $6 from Heidi Nick.

Great promo codes, especially the KnitCrate one. If you haven’t checked out their shop, you are missing out. They have so many kits, yarns, and notions available, they are like a whole yarn store.

Sweet Extra

Only 120 calories in the whole bag.
Only 120 calories in the whole bag.

This month we got a huge bag of Brownie Brittle by Sheila G. ($3 value)

They have all natural ingredients and even though I’m not a fan of chocolate (lost the taste for it many years ago — lucky me), I do love me some toffee and brownies. This was so good, I was glad it was only 120 calories a bag. You feel gluttonous without the guilt.

Fun Extra

Awesome extra!
Awesome extra!

Check out these Kollage Square Circular Knitting Needles. (value $17)

 These are designed to be ergonomically suited to your hands for decreased stress and strain to enable you to knit faster with uniform stitches.

I’ve always heard about square needles and wondered how well they work.

One of you lucky readers will get to find out. These are apart of the giveaway. So once you win you will have to let me know how you like them.

Check below for more info on entering.

Yarn Time

How did they know my favorite colors?
How did they know my favorite colors?

The yarn this month is 3 full hanks of Riveting Sport by Kollage. ($49 value for all)

Not only are these my two favorite colors, but I also got over 1000 yards of it. Each hank holds 350 yards of 100% recycled blue jean yarn. It’s mostly cotton (95% cotton, 5% other) and as soft as your favorite pair of jeans.

As will all the KnitCrate yarn, I have never used this yarn before so I’m very excited to try it out.

Giveaway Time

So for the knitter you will win the square Kollage Knitting Needles and the promo code for the two shawls included in the KnitCrate this month.

For the crocheter, I’m going to send you one of my favorite hooks:

The Clover Amour Crochet Hook, Size J, 6.0mm and a copy of my Verdant Shawl Pattern.
