Yarn of the Month Club! · My Review of DarnGoodYarn's YOTM


I now have ten years under my belt as a crochet designer (can you believe that this all started in 2011?!) and I am CELEBRATING! 

Earlier this month, I got some custom gear -- a pink zip-up hoodie with my logo printed on it!  And now, to make things even more legit, this crochet designer is part of a YARN CLUB!!

It's not just any yarn club either.  It's DarnGoodYarn's Yarn of the Month Club!  

Get your Yarn of the Month here. Use my discount code, SWEETSOFTIES15 for 15% off! 

And, well -- I'm happy to report that I received my very first shipment earlier this week, and it was a wonderful surprise!!  Check out my unboxing and review video, or read on!

This is a really gorgeous hand-dyed skein of yarn!  I love the variegated colors and striping, and that the yarn is made of recycled material.  It's fine (#2) weight yarn, which I have not had the chance to work with much over the years (I mostly use #4 weight yarn), so it's a great chance to try something new!

I'm currently brainstorming project ideas!  If you have any thoughts or suggestions on what I should make using this lovely "Midnight Moonlight" skein, let me know in the comments section below.  I'll very likely share the pattern of what I end up designing on my blog!

In addition to the skein of yarn, there were a few lovely surprises that I found in my package.  So...if you're interested in joining in on Yarn of the Month (YOTM) club too, check out the other perks of membership below!

DarnGoodYarn really makes getting snail mail an exciting and fun experience that I now greatly anticipate, because I love how this is a nice surprise each time! 

Anyhow, thank you for reading my review post, and I hope this inspires you to check out YOTM club to see if it's something you want to get in on too!  If you're a club member, I'd love to hear about what your favorite mystery skein from them is!  

As an update, here's a second skein I got.  Isn't it simply beautiful?  I'm wondering if I should use this yarn for crocheting a turtle!

If you're interested in the pattern for the turtle, check out "Tori the Turtle" on my blog!

Take care my lovely crochet friends,
