KNIT : Wool and the Gang Throw
IMG_2378.JPG

Back in summer of 2017, I got my hands on a 50% off coupon for Wool and the Gang's website so I decided to try out their Crazy Sexy Wool. I bought a Koselig blanket kit but the herringbone stitch was frustrating so I opted for a simple garter stitch blanket instead. I chat more about the throw in the video below.

Chatting a bit about the things going on here at Buckaloo View Farm in June in the video above. We are harvesting a few veggies from the garden, getting ready to possibly get cows, and trying to catch a goat!

I’m “diving” right into this gorgeous Vidalana yarn featured in this month’s original member crate from Knit Crate. It’s the perfect mermaid green-blue and pairs beautifully with the “Minty Fresh” shawl pattern—also included this month!

Check out the video below for a fun unboxing and review!

Knit Crate : A Love Letter

Dear Knit Crate,

You've broadened my yarn horizons.

You offer people amazing value on amazing yarn.

You constantly surprise me with what is in your sweet teal crate each month.

Every month, without fail, you deliver. I open my mailbox, bracing myself for the drudgery of bills and junk mail to find a package of yarn heaven. 

You're kind of one of the best relationships I've ever had.

Love,

Liesl of Buckaloo View

Inspired by masculine color palettes and easy going classic textures, like linen and leather, we are sure you will love this month's colors!

I received the original membership which had two skeins of this La Brebis fingering weight yarn in the Gray Twist colorway. It’s a blend of merino, wool, and nylon in a fun marled effect that pairs perfectly with the two patterns featured in this month’s crate. One is a knit shawl by Susanne Hogl called Daxis and the other is a crocheted cabled clutch by Marie Segares.
