    I love the idea of a monthly subscription. Be so much fun going to get the mail and finding yarn!

  2. Michelle

    Yes please! Magically (well, almost) regenerating yarn is definitely a want. And that shawl pattern looks gorgeous!

  3. Jo Hurst

    Oooh, sounds lovely. I’ve just discovered an inner yearning for 1-skein lacy projects, and this could really scratch that itch 🙂

  4. Krista Rhodes

    Interesting, I’d be curious to try it and see some of these patterns available!

  5. Maria

    What a great idea – sometimes you see yarn but you are not quite sure what pattern would suit it !

  6. MB

    I keep meaning to make space in my budget for a yarn subscription! This would be a great way to test it out.

  7. Lisa

    “Yarn subscription” is definitely an intriguing phrase. Well, if it works for vegetables, wine, and other things, why not yarn?

  8. Alice

    I let my last yarn subscription expire, so it would be great to try a new one. Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. Bobbie

    Wow, that photo looks absolutely incredible! I normally tend towards darker colours, but I’ve been finding myself drawn to brightly coloured handknit accessories more and more lately…

  10. Kimberly Lenzi

    Yarn and pattern one a month by mail? That might be mail I would look forward to!

  11. Sash

    This sounds amazing. I’ve been looking for this type of subscription to feed my yarn/knitting addiction 🙂

  12. Stephanie

    I would love to try out a yarn subscription box! I’m drooling over the color in that photo.

  13. Cheryl Zahn

    I love that a pattern is included with the surprise. The sneak peek of the Lacey Shawl is beautiful.

  14. Gwen

    What a great idea! I love surprise subscription boxes. It’s like Christmas every time you get one.

  15. Samina

    Yarn clubs are always so nice. I haven’t done one in a few years, so i may have to look into this one now.

  16. Karel

    This sneak peek is perfectly beautiful (and perfectly blocked!). Congratulations, Yarn Crush, on your new service.

  17. Kathy Wallace

    What a fabulous idea – surprise yarn & pattern that comes straight to my door? Sign me up!

  18. Kelly Schembri

    Please, I am a stay at home mom of three little ones and knitting is my escape. A beautiful box of yarn would just make my day!

  19. Susan Ritchie Voegtly

    What a summery color and lightweight knit. Could be perfect for a sister moving to Florida, or the one who’s going to visit!!!

  20. Suzanne

    Thanks for the opportunity to try the Yarn Crush! Monthly yarn surprises in my mail box – what could be better?

  21. Irene T

    Sounds like lovely yarn, and pretty pattern. Maybe this will get me out of my knitting doldrum.

  22. Claudia

    Wow, that is just breathtaking. And who doesn’t love squishy yarn surprises at their door?

  23. Taine

    What fun! I’m already in love with BarkBox, NatureBox, and Quarterly, so why not add another to the mix? Squishy yarn in my mailbox is the best 🙂

  24. Jan

    What a lovely idea — yarn just showing up at your mailbox!

    Thanks for the chance to win one!

  25. Dari Trout

    I have toyed with the idea of several different subscription clubs. I just haven’t been able to decide which one best suits me (I like them ALL!). It would be awesome to be able to ‘try-before-you-buy’!

  26. Dcalaneknits

    what a great idea! That darn job and family keep me from knitting all the pretties. I’d love to give this a try.

  27. Megan

    What a great idea! I love subscription boxes, it’s like getting gifts (that you pay for)!

  28. Susan

    Wow, that’s a great giveaway! That shawl looks gorgeous! Thank you for the opportunity.

  29. Carolyn Hutchinson

    Love this colour! And the glimpse of the pattern is tantalizing. Thanks for the discount link too.

  30. Annamary

    Knitty is the best when it comes to showcasing a lot of stuff I might not otherwise come across! This is a great example. Hope to win!

  31. Emily mcrae

    I’ve been very curious to try a yarn subscription and this one looks really lovely. Would love to test it out!

  32. Tisha

    I am such a sucker for monthly box subscriptions. Couple that with yarn and I’m sold!

  33. Ilehlia

  34. Deborah Graham

    I love to see new start-ups! Wishing you all the luck. It would be fun to win!

    Thanks for letting us know about Yarn Crush and the chance to win a surprise box!

  38. Catrina

    My heart is all aflutter at the very thought of this yarny goodness arriving in my mailbox. Sigh.

  39. Tara Deluca

    oh dear. A skill question? Nervous much? Ok. Worth a try. I don’t, however, ever win things so maybe that’s ok too? I love the color of the sneak peek?

  40. mary m

    I pretty much only knit from kits these days and have always wanted to try a subscription club!

  41. Rebecca Ragsdale

    A box of yarn showing up at your house every month, Sounds Fantastic, and the sneak peak picture looks quite fabulous.

  42. Lisa Barrett

    Yarn clubs are so fun! Receiving yarn in the mail is fabulous but receiving mystery yarn is even better. Thanks much for the giveaway.

  43. Anne

    What an exciting idea! Yarn plus a project for showcasing the yarn. Small enough to complete in a month (since it sounds like 1 skein). Perfect.

  44. Betsy

    Love the name! I remember my mom have a subscription for a mystery craft back in the 70s. Its still a good idea!

  45. Andrea Saxton

    Would love to win this to give it a try. Thank you, Yarn Crush and Knitty Blog!

  46. Page

    That shawl is beautiful! First time I have heard of this company. I would love to win one of the prizes. Thank you!

  47. Amy Gault

    Oooh!! I’d like a chance to try! I consider myself an advanced beginner, but maybe I have enough skill…

  48. heidi

    I love this! The shawl pattern looks really pretty, just from the sneak peek. Very generous of Joanna.

  49. Tricia Baker

    I always love reading Knitty! It’s been a constant over time, unlike print subscriptions. Tank you always.

  50. Cambria Flynn

    I would love a chance to win a subscription box!
    Thank you for the opportunity 🙂

  51. Teena Art Teacher

    I’m making chimo hats right now and exploring all kinds of yarn. I usually start with a pattern in mind but somehow it morfs into an original. Still looking for the perfect hat yarn!

  52. Gina Sullivan

    I have just started back knitting to get my mind off being stressed with health and work. I would LOVE this to get me even more inspired! !

  53. Nancy W

    It sounds like fun – I love the sample project! Who wouldn’t want surprise yarn showing up in the mail?!?

  54. Rhonda F.

    I love yarn! I love getting mail! I love surprises! WIN WIN WIN! Thank you Knitty and Yarn Crush!

  56. Sarah

    What a cool idea! A door-to-door subscription service that I will actually use!! Thank you from all yarn crafters 🙂

  57. Lynn

    The August offering looks amazing! I have to check out the website and maybe get me some!

  58. Cheri Spicer

    I am in a knitting slump and receiving this lovely prize just might be the key to snapping out of ghe doldrums!

  59. Flossie Tincknell

    What a lovely shade of green! It would be a challenge and pleasure to work it into this pattern. Please pick me!

  60. Dawna J.

    I’m no knitter, but I’ll crochet the heck outta whatever you send me if I win!!! What a wonderful idea!

  61. Margaret Hadley

    Do I see tiny beads in this picture, or is that part of the yarn? Love the delicate shading and the stitch/lace definition!

  62. helen king

    Absolutely stunning shawl and gorgeous color of yarn! Who would’t love to win this?

  63. RedDaLeftyKnitter

    I love seeing what Knitty is up to, and spotted this posting. That shawl tidbit is GORGEOUS. Thanks for the opportunity to win a goody!

  64. Melanie Benedict

    There is nothing better than getting knitting surprises in the mail. Well, it’s a toss up between chocolate and knitting surprises. Fingers crossed on winning this one and a big Thank You for the opportunity. You rock!

  65. Stephanie Herndon

    I just this morning commented on my Facebook that after I finish my sweater I needed some lace in my life. This is beautiful! !!

  66. Lori Wallin

    I LOVE knitting lace shawls — hope I get a chance to answer the skill question!!!

  67. Anne R

    What a great idea! I would love to try having a complete project sent to me. I always seem to not quite have all the right supplies for what I want to make.

  68. Aimee

    These things are perfect for when you want to make something, but are overwhelmed by your stash, and Ravelry.

  69. Alia

    I didn’t sign up for the subscription because I decided I need to go on a bit of a yarn diet and start knitting down my stash . . . but if I won the giveaway box, that totally doesn’t count, right? 😉

  70. Martina N

    What a beautiful piece of lace work! I’d love to have that pattern, nevertheless the gorgeous yarn!

  71. Darlene Krystal

    This would be a great way for a beginner knitter to be introduced to yarns in the knitting world…….

  72. Tiffanie

    Yes! A project in a box. That’s genius. I often have analysis paralysis when looking for a new project.

  73. Shannon

    This would be a lovely surprise. I have often wondered about getting a yarn subscription.

  74. Karen Watkins

    The shawl is so pretty. I’d love to have a chance to see what’s in the August box.

  75. Ruth D

    Gifts of yarn showing up at my front door once a month? What’s not to love about this?!

  76. Susan B.

    Would like to win this very nice giveaway and see what is in Knitting Crushes August box.

  102. Deb from Kingston

    Sounds like a great idea. Like a “goody box” for big people!!!! Please include me in the free draw.

  103. Robyn H.

    Such a lovely colored yarn in the photo and the beads are so tiny that I almost missed them. That must be a fabulous shawl to see in person. <3

  104. Beth Rudowske

    The lace pattern looks lovely, and so does the yarn. Would love to discover the rest.

  105. Barb B

    Good Evening All,
    I just read about this Club on the Cat Mountain Fiber Arts site. I do not know if this club is for knitters only, skill level needed or can one state colors preferences?
