A couple of weeks ago, I received a box in the mail.
My first KnitCrate shipment.
What would be in it? I felt like I was opening my Christmas stocking.
|#KnitCrate's November 2016 Socks Box|
I'll admit, I was a little worried about the yarn. A few days before the package arrived, the sock pattern (which was part of the package) arrived via email. Now, being my first package from KnitCrate, I wasn't sure what to expect, but the photo on the pattern was showing a shockingly pink sock. I'm not really a pink kind of girl and I'll admit, I was a little disappointed that my first shipment was probably going to be shockingly pink yarn that I would never use. But it turns out, the yarn isn't shockingly pink at all. It's a brownish coral. The label calls it Spring Salmon. I call it perfect!
Also included in the package were the cutest, tiniest pair of travel scissors and an electronic row counter.
I mean, look how tiny the scissors are! Aren't they adorable? They're not much bigger than a key on my laptop! And yet, they cut yarn better than my full sized desk scissors. I'm in awe!
I can't wait to start knitting with the Tracks yarn. I had to hide it from myself so that I'd finish Christmas knitting. But lucky for me..... Since I gave up trying to knit the cowl from Hell and decided to buy the recipient's gift.... that means I don't have to knit that recipient's spouse a gift either. Excellent! Two gifts instantly struck off the Gifts To Knit list. And that means, unless I'm forgetting someone (which I probably am. I always do,) I am finished gift knitting! Done! Finished! Fini!
And you know what that means..... I get to go play with coral colored bison!
