February marks a full year of boxes. With it being our Birthday box what is better than cake?
This month to celebrate subscribers received cakes of 2 Bernat Simply Softee Stripes. I decided on a gorgeously bright colourway called ‘Over The Rainbow’. Each cake is 120g and contains approx 262 metres. It is also machine washable and can be placed in the tumble drier on a low heat, which is kind of essential for babies really.
I chose 4 different patterns for each of the boxes so everyone will get to choose what to make (not that you need to use the supplied patterns!) There is a pattern for a sweet little pullover or if you feel like making something a bit different you could make the hats and booties. I have even included a little fluffy pom pom if anybody wanted to add it. The colours within in the yarn are so lovely I am itching to found out what everybody chooses to make.
The yarn this month is American and I chose patterns from the same brand which meant that the crochet patterns used American terms. To help anybody to convert the patterns I popped in a handy little stitch conversion guide.
I chose lovely bright green buttons which I thought would be a little different and help create a unique little outfit along with the usual Crocheted or Knitted With Love tag which can be sewn in.
The feedback from subscribers already this month definitely show that the little treat has gone down amazingly well. I had some beautiful rose gold pens engraved with ‘I Love Yarn’ for everyone. I was over the moon when these arrived as it really is a stunning pen. It has a perfect weight balance to it and will be perfect to pop into a project bag or handbag.
