If you’ve been looking at fall as the perfect time to curl up on the couch and learn to knit, we need to talk. KnitCrate has released a preview of their October 2021 boxes, and there’s plenty to fall in love with in these spoilers!
It's Tea Time! Or that's the theme for the November 2021 KnitCrate boxes, anyway! The company says they're offering up "a cup of comfort in a variety of colorful shades."
Taking inspiration from the colors you'd find in a china tea cup to the bolder shades of tea itself, they're perfect for some sipping and stitching. Both KnitCrate Knit and Crochet Club and Sock Club subscribers will get patterns plus colorways.
Knit and Crochet Club
Knit and Crochet Club subscribers will get skeins of Uru.Yarn Cozy this month — a mix of 45% Huacaya Alpaca, 45% Suri Alpaca, and 10% Stellina. Each skein has 55 yards (50 meters)/100g of super bulky yarn. Here are the four different colors that will be shipped out (each crate will include two skeins of the same color):
Butterfly Pea Flower
The deep purple of Butterfly Pea Flower evokes the rich taste of a delicious cup of tea. Infused with pops of pink and blue, this colorway will bring unique beauty to your next project.
Enjoy the visual feast of this vibrant yellow with flecks of strawberry pink and dark green. Just looking at the shades of Fruit Tea brings to mind the taste of mango, strawberry, lime, and whatever fruity flavors you wish to sample.
The deep savory taste of chai fills the strands of each skein of Noon Chai. Enjoy a rejuvenating beverage to bring energy to your afternoon with the muted pinks and blues of this delicious colorway.
What would a tea party be without a glass of Bubble Tea? The dusky green of this colorway pops with accents of blue, pinky reds, and yellow just like the tapioca bubbles of this unique type of tea burst between your teeth.
Sock Club subscribers will get skeins of Uru.Yarn Happy Feet in November — made with a mix of 60% Superwash Merino, 20% Kid Mohair, 10% Silk, 10% Nylon. Each skein packs a full 400 yards (365 m)/100g of 3-ply fingering weight yarn, and each crate will come with one skein in any of the three colorways:
Breathe in the crisp nighttime air with the vivid dark blue of Cobalt, reminiscent of watching the stars on a cold winter’s night.
Enjoy the warm comfort of a cup of tea after you come in from the cold. The rosy glow of Tea Cup is sure to bring the warmth back into your cheeks from over the rim of your cup.
The silvery-blue hues of Jasper call to mind the silence of snowfall and how the world becomes hushed in its wake. Wrap yourself in the muted colors of this quiet, peaceful shade.
