The July 2017 #SockCrate from #KNITCRATE pops! First up is the Merino/Nylon/Stellina yarn in the "Firefly Riot" from @lavenderluneyarn Samantha Furst. (I can't decide if I'm going to make socks with it, or turn it into a shawlette.) This month's pattern is #CelticClimbers by @paperdaisycreations Lisa K. Ross — they may look challenging, but a predictable lace repeat creates a lovely dramatic effect without too much effort. This month's extra comes from @johavi_woodworking Stephanie Murray, and is a bag of cute laser-engraved wood tags that say "Handmade."⠀ ⠀ If you want a box like this to show up on your doorstep every month, the @knitcrate subscription service is what you're looking for. Use the affiliate link in my IG profile for all your KNITCRATE needs, and use the KD20 coupon code at checkout to receive 20% off the first month of an ongoing subscription. Everyone wins!⠀ ⠀ #UnravelYourKnitcrate
