Subscription Yarn Box Review- Darn Good Yarn Box Month 2

I was pretty excited to finally have a chance to open my second monthly subscription yarn box from darn good yarn.

The first thing that struck me when I opened the box was a nice floral scent.

I Love the colors of this recycled silk yarn.

The box also came with a cute little pouch. This is perfect to hold crochet hooks and small scissors.

Each box comes with a knit and crochet pattern for the yarn. Because I am still learning to knit and my knitting skills are lacking, I went with the crochet pattern.

I absolutely love how my pouch turned out. This is the perfect size to use as a cell phone holder.

Thoughts about Darn Good Yarn customer service.

I was out of town for a few weeks this month so I didn’t get to open my box right away. I did have a little glitch in the system along the way the way. I attempted to change billing date for a few days later so I would be home to receive my box. The day after I changed the date I noticed that I had the box for month 2 on the way and I was scheduled for the box for month 1 to be shipped also. I contacted customer service via the web chat and they fixed the issue immediately.
