June Big Beanie Bag Review

Have you heard of jimmybeanswool’s beanie bags?  They’re a brilliant yarn project subscription that comes in two different sizes.  I had to cancel my subscriptions last year because life, but I re-upped a few weeks ago and am psyched about the new monthly pretties that comes in the mail for me to play with!

This is a review of June (2017) Big Beanie Bag.  It’s only $25 a month shipped and you get a cute drawstring project bag with a bunch of goodies!  Here’s all about June’s —

First, yay, yellow project bag!  (favorite color)  The bag itself is approx. 11″x10″, the perfect size for a small project that you can toss into a tote bag or a large purse.  This month’s pattern was provided by Rachel from Unraveled Designs — cute fingerless mitts!

Here’s what’s in the bag!

— There’s approx. 180 yards altogether of this gorgeous wool, Filitura di Crosa Zara and Zara Color.  It’s smooth and soft and a dream to work with!

— Two adorable sheep stitch markers from Lantern Moon

— A Boye stitch holder

— A brilliant DPN tube to hold your project safely, from Nancy’s Knitknacks

— Amazing hand cream sample from Soak

 

I’m not a fan of working with DPNs so I bought a new mini circular to work this project and I’m about halfway through one mitt.  I’ll post an update when they’re finished!  They’ll be available for sale in my main shop, http://www.sophiechic.etsy.com.

If you’re interested in starting your own subscription of Big Beanie Bags you should head here:  Big Beanie Bag

It’s insanely worth it in my opinion for only $25/month!  You can opt for monthly, 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month subscriptions in different color palettes.  You don’t have to use the yarn for that month’s project if you don’t want to, and it’s a great way to find new yarn without committing to buying full skeins without first being able to feel or work with it.

Happy Knitting!
