Sock Crush August 2016 – spoiler, review, and coupon code

As you may know, I signed up for Yarn Crush a few months ago and have been loving it. So when they announced their new Sock Crush box I had to give it a try! This month is the first Sock Crush shipment, and the one year anniversary of Yarn Crush. Read on to find out the details and what I thought of the first Sock Crush. Warning: spoilers!

First of all, the details. Sock Crush is a monthly subscription box that costs $26.99 per month (if you pay a month at a time – you get a discount if you pay for multiple months in advance) + shipping. I think shipping is going to be $3 per box (I got free shipping on this one) in the US, bringing the total to $29.99. Sock Crush is billed on the 15th, and ships on the 5th. Each box will include enough premium yarn to knit a pair of socks, a download code for a sock knitting pattern, and “most months” they will also throw in a small bonus extra.

So here’s what we got for the first month!

So, was it worth the cost? Turtlepurl Yarns + shipping would cost me $32.44. The Soak nail polish, as far as I can tell, comes in 4 pack boxes, but dividing the price by 4 means 1 bottle is worth about $4.13. The pattern costs $5.99. So if I bought all of these on my own it would cost me $42.56. Definitely worth it cost wise.

Do I like it? Turtlepurl Yarns has been on my wishlist for awhile, and I love this exclusive color. The pattern is perfect for the yarn. The Soak nail polish costs more than I’d normally pay for nail polish, so it is a nice treat!

So this box is a winner. I will definitely be staying subscribed and I’m excited to see what comes next!
