May 2015 Yarnbox!

Today is a bit of a time cramp for me. For the first time in months, I set an alarm to wake me up. :O The horror. Hahaha. The late shift work schedule is really different. I did manage to get a lot done! Mainly, because I’ll be going on a weekend trip with the family, so there’s a lot of prepare for.

Yesterday, the May Yarnbox came in the mail. It’s really neutral, but the pattern seems pretty sweet.

Yarnbox is a subscription box just for yarn that starts at $35.95/month depending on the plan you choose. This is the classic box with a preference on crocheting (sometimes that makes a difference).

This month’s featured is from Ancient Arts, which has some amazing colors. Subscribers got either DK or fingering weight yarn from the company. Ancient Arts also has this funny thing: they have these special yarn collections called “Meow Yarn” and “Woof Yarn.” Amusing. These are yarns dyed in the color of different cat/dog breeds. This is another reason I’m a little disappointed with the color I got in the box. This cream color is called Irish Linen. It is a fingering weight of 70% merino, 20% bamboo, and 10% nylon.

However, I’m more excited about the patterns we get this month. For people who got the DK weight, the crochet designer is Carolyn Carleton with the Miranda Vest. What a wonderful pattern! The other crochet pattern this month is for the fingering yarn with designer April Garwood. Both of these patterns are great! I’m really happy with these.

Until next time, happy crocheting!
