Congrats to Katherine who won the “Magic Wand” Needle Keeper with the following comment:
Thanks for the reviews! I’m considering a subscription and this was super helpful. 😀
As for my last project — a Stephen West hat, named Precocious Briocheous, that was my first time using brioche stitch! Lots of fun, and very very warm. I did manage to lose a couple stitches after throwing it (while still on needles) in my bag. I recovered though, phew.
There are still two other giveaways happening here and here. Check them out and enter to win, and be sure to follow the blog. I have a yarn giveaway coming up very soon!
I received my December Knitcrate and as always, they did not disappoint. The new format for the reveal is that everything, including the price of each item, is revealed on the video below. Then the most important part — the giveaway, is below that.
Did you get a Knitcrate this month? How did you like it, did you get the same items as me? Let us know below.
*Offer good to anyone living anywhere (yay!). Entries accepted until December 31st, 2014. Winner will be chosen and announced Jan. 1st, 2015. The promo code for the two patterns will be emailed to the winner.
I first saw it at the Stitches West show a few years back and was intrigued with it. I like it’s portability and size, but the cost was a little high. I finally took the plunge and bought it and I’m very glad I did. I go more into what I like about it in the video below.
Do you have a Block and Roll? How do you like it, how well is it holding up? I’d love to hear below.
I’m starting a new tradition for my December motif of the month. I’ve decided to do a different snowflake each year. So here is the 2nd in the series. You can check out the pattern and video tutorial here.
I found these cute little desktop calendars a few weeks back. It has a yarn quote for each day of the year. I bought one for myself, and an extra for one of you. Leave a comment below letting us know your favorite month of the year to be entered.*
I got a little behind with the holidays, but also wanted to try something new. So instead of full blog posts of the values of all the items in my yarn subscriptions that I receivedlast month, I made up two videos with the breakdowns already included.
My first is from Yarnbox. It is the November 2014 box. I got some really nice yarn from New Zealand (spoiler alert: more possum yarn.)
The second is from Knitcrate. It is the November 2014 Int/Adv Knitter crate. It had an awesome scarf in a scarf kit and a item that I’m giving away below, so be sure to head below the video for that.
This guy is made for storing your circular knitting needles while working on a project. The video goes more into what it does, but it’s a great tool for your knitting bag. It can be yours by leaving a little comment below on what your last finished project was.*
*US residents only please. Entries accepted until Dec. 21st, 2014 midnight Pacific time. I’ll announce the winner on Monday, Dec. 22nd, 2014
I’ve got another giveaway going up in the next couple of days that is great for knitters or crocheters so follow the blog now so you get notification when that is up.
Congrats to Dianne M. who won the snail tape measure with the following comment:
I have 2 favorites, I love dragonflies, we have many in our yard and they always fly around our pool, they will even land on our fingers, my youngest son and my granddaughter get so excited to have them be so friendly. I also love ladybugs, and my son (10) and my granddaughter (5) look for them, when we see one we just have to sing the ladybug song.
Don’t miss out on the next giveaway. Be sure to follow the blog today!
