I received this as a gift from my daughter and son-in-law for Christmas. I have crocheted before in the past but never tried knitting before. So far I have made coasters, a little pouch, and now I am working on a hat. It was a bit tricky getting started but they provided enough yarn that I was able to end up with a set of nice coasters.
Oh my gosh I love knit-wise! I get the service every month. Even though I am a total beginner, it has changed my life! I’m actually going to get it as a gift for my mom and grandma for this holiday weekend. If the owner of the company read this. Keep doing what you were doing. I look forward to getting the box every month. Thank you!!!
Learning how to knit has been fun. I look forward to my Knit-Wise box arriving every month. I did not realize how important it would become. I have knitted 5 masks (with filters!) for my family members. Now I am starting on friends. Thank you Knit-Wise!
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!
Very nice yarn, I was happy and surprised, looking forward to next box
Got it for my mom last Mother’s Day and getting it for my husbands parents this year. Our family has become knit-crazy. We love it and I would highly recommend to everyone. Video tutorials make it so easy a caveman could do it. 😂
Knit wise is so awesome. I started a complete beginner and now I am making beanies/gloves/scarves in the cold New Jersey winters for my whole family. It has actually saved me money in what I would have spent in winter apparel.
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!
This review is for the Kid's Pom Pom Creature kit that we bought from the knitwise shop! It is so cute and original. My kids loved making them and playing with them after. Great deal - it kept them busy for hours.
I have the Just Yarn subscription and so far I love it! Each box comes with 2 cakes of yarn. Last month it also included a sample from another yarn company. I look forward to see what surprise yarn comes- and it's been great now that my local yarn shop has been closed. For only $12 a month, it's a great deal!
I can’t say enough good things about knit-wise! I just love it. It’s one of the few pleasant surprises that comes to my doorstep on the reg. Totally recommend
