Options, the 2nd Edition

Hi my peeps,

So it's yet another Glenda Winkleman's yarn review, this time it was about @knitcrate.  I've watched her review their yarn before with envy as I would love to try "premium, hand dyed yarn", heck why not?

However, this time was oh so different they were having a special, "subscribe to their membership crate and get another free just pay $5US for shipping". Now getting 4 skeins of hand dyed premium yarn for under $30US is a steal, (well in my eyes) as all hand-dyed yarns I've ogled over were anywhere from $24US up per skeins.  I thought long and hard should I really, "yes you should," says that little annoying voice in my head.

I did, and in a few short days two green boxes were delivered and I squealed with excitement when I finally saw and felt what "premium" yarn felt like.  This was the very first time I was seeing and touching fingering weight yarn.  "Oh so soft!".  I squeezed them, rubbed them on my face, showed my neighbour, I was like a child on Christmas day.

My very first fingering weight yarn

Just look at this colourway though.

I already knew what I was going to make with my fingering yarn, "I'm all aflutter". I went unto putting my yarn into a ball to start my top.  The yarn was so easy to work with, I couldn't get over just how soft it feels.  The top was completed and I just couldn't wait to try it on.  I live in the Tropics and I could wear this just about any day of the year. Do you wanna see my top? Do you really?

Halfway there

"Tell me you don't like it. you really can't say it, can you?"


I felt sooooooo darn hot, sizzling sexy in it

And with a stroke of luck or blessings rather I was able to keep my subscription for September and October as well.  Yes! Yes! Yesssssss!

September's box (this purple is sooo pretty)

October. 

I couldn't get the November box even though I wish I could.  I tried so hard to get the much-needed points to get the box free but fell short.

This is an outrage! For the first two months, I was asked to review yarn and earn points but none came for my October's box (this was what I needed to get my $25 off coupon), darn it. No November crate for me 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

You can get your November box though via  https://www.knitcrate.com/
happy shopping my lovies.💓💓💓
