More sugar, please!

Hi, my dears,
how are you? Well, after quite long time I made a hair today. And I am enjoying it so much :-D OK, it wasn't the main message of the day. The message of the day iiiiiiis: that the March KnitCrate came. Olalala! And the topic is:
★ S U G A R ★
I was so curious when I saw the first pictures of KnitCrate.
It is OH, SO CUTE!
The yarn is called: Sugared Socks by Uru Yarn, exclusive hand-dyed for KnitCrate.
The mixture of 70% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon, 10% Stellina
Do you know, what Stellina fiber is? It is a nylon fiber that is metallic toned. It is not actually metal, just metallic toned. If you are curious if it is scratchy? I can you ensure, that not. Exactly this yarn is very pleasant.
Do you also make the balls from skeins before you start creating?
I do. :-)
There are two cute patterns in this kit.
For the crocheters: the socks, yes! :-) Called Nectarine
Designed by Brenda Andreson
And for the knitters: a beautiful shawl called Bloom
Designed by Chelsea Berkompas
Both designers offer also the sales in their Ravelry stores. That is amazing, girls.
Thank you very much!
I get the wonderful shade called LOVENDER
There are 2 skeins of this beauty - 200 g totally.
This yarn looks like a freshly fallen snow in the sun.
It is just amazing. Just look!
I wanted to make a shawl, but when my fairies saw the yarn, I knew that I lost my chance. The first hat is done. There is the recommendation for using 2,25 mm needles, but the shawl pattern says 4 mm needles. So I used 4 mm needles and it turned really nice. I am waiting for some sunshine to make some pictures so you can see that beautiful gently sparkle :-)
I love this yarn. To tell you the truth, I was afraid to use so thick needles, but using 4 mm needles was totally OK. And the work came quick. Not so quick, if you will use bulky yarn of course, but quick - yes. The sparkle is soft, not strong and I like it very much. When you take a look at the pictures with the sunshine - you can see it alone. There are no filters and games with the colors. I am so curious, to share with you the hats I made for my fairies. I used easy stitches to let show the beauty of the yarn and I am pretty sure, that there will be enough yarn for making the spring scarf for me too.
The retail value of this KnitCrate is 63 USD, 48 USD is for the yarn only - the yarn worth that price, 10 USD is for the patterns and 5 USD is the postage. BUT you will pay only 24.99 USD - and you will get 200 g of this beauty, two patterns including postage. So that is a great price!
