The first thing I unwrapped was this beautiful yarn and instructions on how to make the Eleanor Scarf.

They also included the buttons needed for the pattern (love the tree detail) and the cutest little “hand made” and “made with love” metal tags.

  1. Hey Liz just wanted to let you know that the price of this is now between $45 and $75 a month depending on country and product I was considering trying a box but I can buy enough yarn for a few blankets at that price

    • I know, I keep looking at subs like these and deciding it’s not worth the money. I can wait for a sale at Michael’s or Herrschner’s (online) and stock up. Well, plus I only know how to loom knit and not to knit with needles and am not sure I have the skills to alter the patterns for loom knitting, even though it should theoretically be possible.

  2. The coupon SUBADDICT was for March 2013, won’t work.

  3. I cannot seem to get the coupon code to work!
    Does anyone have a code that will for for my first Knit Crate box?

  4. I crochet, is there an option for me?

  5. I have been subscribing to this for two months now and it is my favorite sub from the amazing thought put into the package to the fantastic customer service I have received. Any knitter should have this little package of delight delivered each month. The day it is delivered is like Christmas for me.

  6. Thanks for this review, I’ve been an avid knitter a years so it’s nice to see something like this.

    Does it say where the little handmade/made with love tags come from? I’d love to have some of those!

  7. I’ve never tried knitting before but am interested in trying. Would this box be a good investment for a beginner?

    • They have different subscription types, including a beginner option!

  8. I’m curious about the yarn?? Could you pretty please tell me more about it?

  9. I love this! If I were doing more knitting right now, I’d get it in a heartbeat. I wish I could find a comparable sewing/fabric box, which is my craft of the moment.

  10. I’ve never heard yarn described with the word yummy, lol.
