Q: With the $27.50 box subscription, is it just one box every three months, or a box for each of 3 months? Asked by Alexa H., December 2019
It is one box every three months. Each box contains everything needed to complete a fun and useful project. I love the very high grade of yarn shipped over from Italy and the adventure of trying the new set of knitting or crocheting needles sent with each box. I would highly recommend it not only as a gift but as a treat for one’s self. The Knit-Wise boxes themselves have been given a lot of thought. Their bright colors and...
I received my first box which is just the yarn i believe, its the 10$ box. and i got the yarn and a really nice door notice that says "knit happens (do not disturb) which is really cute. However i wish they would have included some information about the actual yarn. Seems really good quality. Black yarn but thats all. It would have been nice to know some details about the yarn, grade and all and what needs are recommended. Maybe the next box will be better we shall see :)
Poor Customer Service - I ordered a box and waited over two months before something arrived. I contacted the seller twice who was unresponsive.
Unimpressive Box - 2 balls of yarn, needles, a plastic tapestry needle, and one page of notes with no direction. Oh, and the cute wrapping they describe on the website is one piece of tissue paper.
I wish I spent 29 and shipping supporting my local knitting store!
I was very disappointed in this box. What I received was in no way worth the price. Maybe at $10 a box, no way at $29 plus shipping.
I received this box as a gift from my sister! I'm already an avid knitter and although the projects are on the simpler side, I have found the first 2 I've gotten very enjoyable. It was a nice palette cleanser to work on between my bigger blanket projects that take many months. The yarn isn't top of the line quality but very nice for the price of the box!
I was attracted to this subscription box because I am a new knitter with short attention span. The reviews across the internet seemed to give this subscription at least a 4.2/5, so I thought I would give it a try. I'll be honest, some of the negative reviews on cratejoy made me nervous, particularly when I read about missed crates and poor customer service. The reality has been quite different.
1. Customer service: I did try to contact them through Cratejoy once and never received a response, which makes me think there is an issue in the connection between cratejoy and Knitwise because when I have contacted Knitwise directly through their own website I have had no problem with customer service. They have been prompt and helpful. There was a shipping issue (package got hung up at the post office) and I received a follow-up email checking that I received the package.
2. Quality: I am pleased with the quality of the yarn and the project they sent. It is for coasters, which honestly is about the attention span I have. Plus, I can make these for relatives and look like I am super crafty.
3. Support: They have many videos on the Knitwise website to help you out with techniques if you are struggling, which I really enjoy.
Overall, though only my first box, I am quite satisfied and at this point would recommend Knitwise to other knitters!
I placed my first order on the 13th with the understanding that shipments would be processed starting the 20th. By the 31st, my mother had not received her shipment, and I was charged for my 2nd shipment. I messaged the seller - no response. My mother received the shipment a few days later, and it was missing key components - like the crochet hook. I messaged the seller again about the missing items and gave them 3 days to respond - still no response. I am cancelling immediately. I wanted to gift something creative but now I doubt I will ever use a subscription gift service again.
I really enjoy my Knit-Wise boxes! The projects are fun and a good variety. There are a few other subscription boxes with higher quality products, but I am a newer crocheter and I really love the idea that this subscription allows you to specify a skill level!
Knit-Wise has introduced me to so many new techniques that I probaby wouldn't have tried before. Also, now they are sending patterns by a different designer each month so that is interesting
I wanted to learn to knit - I have been crocheting for many years. This was the best introduction to knitting that anyone could ask for. Adorable beginner patterns to love and online tutorials including video are a fantastic plus. I am now subscribed to the intermediate boxes and I can’t wait to learn more!
These first two kits have helped me so much in understanding the basics of knitting. The second was fantastic in helping me understand in the round knitting. I am so glad I found this monthly subscription!
