Last month, we launched the SpaceCadet’s Mini-Skein Club, as you know, and I was super excited about it. I so enjoyed choosing the colourways, tying the little bundles up… and when I sent the parcels off, I hoped — hoped — that all the club members were as excited about the yarns they received as I was.
I was nervous as the feedback started to come through on Ravelry but, to my delight, most everyone was absolutely tickled with the parcels. I am so pleased! And, where there suggestions were made, they were really great suggestions that I’m going to use to improve the club in the months to club.
But if I was anxious about what the members thought, that was only compounded when I spotted that Abigail of TAAT Designs and Karrie of KnitPurlGurl had post their reviews of the Mini-Skein Club on their websites. These were real reviews — I had no idea whether Abigail or Karrie would like what they found in their parcels, and I knew they’d both be very honest with their followers.
A little nervously, I clicked on the links to see, and… Well, do you want to see for yourself what they had to say?
First, here’s Abigail’s review. She includes some really photos of the yarns, showing how the parcels were packaged as well as the colourways, and a list of her thoughts for anyone thinking of joining the club.
And here is Episode 20 of the KnitPurlGurl Podcast, which contains her review of the Mini-Skein Club. If you’ve been wondering about joining the club, Karrie’s review is extensive: she discusses the whole parcel, goes into detail about each yarn, and even the way it’s packaged — everything you’d need to know. The rest of KnitPurlGurl Postcast is absolutely packed full of fibery-goodness (just check out the incredibly extensive show notes!) and well worth watching. But if you’d like to jump to ahead to her review of the SpaceCadet’s Mini-Skein Club, then check out this excerpt…
Thank you to everyone who has joined the SpaceCadet’s Mini-Skein Club. I am having an absolute blast choosing your colourways and putting these little bundles together! And I’m so grateful for your feedback, because your input means this club will just get better and better!
