I have now received 6 boxes and I wish I could say that I loved them, but I just can’t. I have not liked one of the patterns. Most of the yarn has been nice, but I never seem to get the color I want. I know YarnYay has no control over that, but it is just disappointing. I have not been impressed with the extras. I want to receive knitting related things, not little craft kits that a 10 year old could do. I do admire the fact that they try to work with small business and women owned businesses. Just don’t think it is worth the money. Also shipping is almost impossible to track and it takes over a week from the time that you are notified that it has shipped to when you finally get the box. I cancelled, it just didn’t live up to expectations.
I'm not sure I'm even getting the newest boxes. I feel like I'm getting old ones that have sat around for a while. Kind of disappointed, was expecting more for the price of these boxes. Cancelling my subscription for this one.
The yarn in the November 2018 box was just beautiful and I found the note cards charming. Have not worked the embroidery kit yet. However, the pattern was so disappointing. The hat I ended up with was child-sized and did not even cover my ears. Usually an array of sizes are available, but not in this pattern. Also, the 1/1 RCP and 1/1 LCP stitches were difficult to figure out with the instructions provided. I learned the stitches online using a cable needle. Was looking forward to this hat, but now I am taking it apart and stashing the yarn for another project.
