Up Your Knit Game With A PostStitch Subscription
Okay I am SO stoked to be sharing about my experience with a fantastic subscription box: PostStitch.
When I first learned about PostStitch, I did a bit of a happy dance. I’ve been knitting since I was in 6th grade and have always had an absolute passion for it. A constant problem for me is finding new and fun things to make instead of the typical hat, headband and scarf. Besides perusing Pinterest and Ravelry, I don’t come up with many new things that I felt comfortable tackling, let alone having all of the right pieces to finish the project.
This is where PostStitch kicks butt. When you sign up for a subscription, you get EVERYTHING you need to complete a knitting project from start to finish. That means a pattern, yarn, notions and anything else you can think of. It’s a complete knitting kit, packaged together and waiting at your doorstep.
With PostStitch, you get the option of 2 different boxes: BigStitch (an adult woman’s accessory or SockStitch (an adult woman’s sock). Once you choose your subscription, your box comes to the door with everything you need from start to finish. Specifically, you get a printed pattern from a notable knitwear designer, premium yarn in the yardage called for by the pattern, needles from ChiaoGoo, and notions. The BigStitch box runs at $60 and the SockStitch goes for $40.
The box I received contained a pattern for a shawl—something I’ve never knit before in my life. Full disclosure: the pattern took me a LONG time to finish. However, this is mostly due to the fact that I work full time and manage The Busy Bee on the side.
That being said, the pattern is super fun (and easy) to make! The merino wool yarn (by Lorna’s Laces) is the softest most luxurious yarn I’ve ever felt before. Seriously, it’s like butter.
Convinced yet? Knit happens, people. Get your hands on a PostStitch box ASAP—you’ll wonder why you haven’t had one sooner.
