Order by August 28th to get this box!
Q: For the deluxe kit, what brand/style needles are included—metal v. wood? Circular v. straight? Kits look fantastic, excited to order!Asked by Rachel W., May 2021
Hi Rachel! :)
For the current kit, we send size 6 Knitters Pride circular needles; they're made of birchwood with a black cord.
Our next kit requires 2 sizes of needles - size 11 and size 15 - and we send both sets.
Honestly, because we're such a new subscription series... we can customize to your preferences regarding wood vs. metal! I even have some of the "square" Kollage circular needles, as well as addi's, Crystal Palace, etc.
Someday when we're big :) I'll use one vendor uniformly.
Thank you for your kind words! We'd love to have you as a subscriber.
Q: Is this box simple enough for someone who hasn't tried knitting? Asked by Stefanie M., April 2021
The Spring 2021 Alim Shawlette is best for an adventurous beginner. It works for someone who knows how to knit and purl.
There are a lot of stitches on the needle at the end - up to 300 - so that will be too tricky for a newbie. :)
I appreciate the question so much, we'll be sure to specify the ability level on future boxes!
All the best
I love this crate. More than I expected. I am so excited for the next one. Kari is great. There is a lot of thought put into this crate. I wish I had found it sooner.
You made my day, Geri!! Happy Memorial Day and stay tuned for your next box in early July :)
The Spinning Hand has the BEST box out there for knitting! Love the quality of the yarn and the choice of patterns, all the extra goodies are great too!!! Whether you are learning to knit an expert or somewhere in between this is a must have box!
You are the best-est Kanette! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review. <3
My box was beyond wonderful. Beautiful, quality yarn, a nice pattern, lip gloss, bath bomb, tea and cute project bag. Also, excellent communication with the Spinning Hand staff. I am already looking forward to my next box!
Thanks so much for your review, Ginnie! I'm happy to "get to know you" via our knitting correspondences. :)
I felt like someone had sent me an exquisite gift! I know I paid for this package, but it was so well put together, so thoughtfully curated, that it felt more like a gift than something I bought for myself. The knitting yarn is lovely and beautifully packaged. The small tote bag for knitting the project is really quite pretty and quite unusual. And the little perks--a tea bag and some hand salve, were just over the top! I want one every month, but I can't be that good to myself!
Thank you so much Brenda! YOU are an exquisite gift. :) I loved our video unboxing!!
Luxury yarn from Araucania, a handmade project bag with snap closures so your yarn won't snag, and a pattern for a beautiful lace shawl (plus, more pattern options if something else makes your heart sing), and more goodies just for you. Want to see an unboxing? We've got one for you:
With self-care in mind, we're proud to announce our first kit of 2021 - the Knitters Self Care Knit Beanie Kit, created with Luscious Llama, a 100% baby llama bulky weight yarn from Designer's Choice to create your own luxurious two-toned beanie.
