It's that time again. Last month I said I was not thrilled with my yarn club. It's called Yarn Of The Month Club.
You can find it HERE.
The basis of the club is they send 3-4 samples of yarn.
Here is what they have to say....
If you look at their site they have the yarn for May shown. Those are the 3 samples of yarn I got.
The club cost almost $10.
Most of the yarn I have received has at least 150-225 yards.
I sent in my cancel form but I got the yarn again this month. Grrr....I had trouble starting the club because I waited so long for it to come. I waited almost a month for the May colors. These came about a week ago. So they mail at the beginning of the month.
It is nice to get yarn in the mail as a surprise, I just wish it was more yarn than thread.
The samples for May had the color blue in common.
This month the colors are rust, yellow, and a peach variegated.
Here is the first sample....
The label on the bag says Creative Linen.
5.25 sts/inch on US 7
50% Linen 50% Cotton
219 yds color:643
This yarn is the most like yarn in the group. It's a rust color. Really pretty. It works up nice and I love that it's Linen and Cotton. It has a nice drape.
I really liked this one.
On to the next sample....
The second bag says Audra.
5.25 sts/inch on US 4
76% Linen 12% Silk 12% Viscose
205 yds color:04
This yarn is more like crochet thread. It's a really pretty variegated peach and cream. Its so thin that it was hard for me to work with, but its really pretty. Just very thin.
I liked this sample too.
The last sample...
This sample is Linus.
5 sts/inch on US 8
50% Acrylic 20%Linen 18% Nylon 12% Rayon
159 yds color: 6812
This is the sample I am not crazy about. I do not like the color, nor the type of yarn it is. This yarn is wide. It looks like something you would hem with in sewing.
I tried to make a swatch with it but it does not show the stitches and it looks ratty even when the stitches are perfect.
I don't know what I would use this yarn for...if any of you have a suggestion I would listen, gladly.
So that's my Yarn Of The Month Club for June.
I am going to keep the subscription since they didn't stop the shipments.
This little yarn stash would be perfect for crochet earrings and jewelry.
I guess I could make the 5X5 square and start me a blanket with all the different kinds of yarn that I get.
I just don't know. I keep thinking something great is going to come.
It hasn't yet.
Thanks for the visit!
Leave me a comment if you would like. I would like to know if you signed up or belong to this club, if so, how do you feel about the yarn samples.
I love to hear from you.
