A Couple of Reveals And A Giveaway

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.

    I am excited to have found this site. I taught myself to crochet during a BIG snowstorm in the northeast while pregnant with my first child …. we were snowed in for 3 days! I started a blanket that took me a year to complete. I am currently working on another blanket, for the same child now 9, and look forward to learning some new techniques to personalize it for her. Hopefully I can complete this one in 6 months or less and start on one for the next child. YOUR VIDEOS ARE GREAT and rather soothing with such a passive and caring tone of voice. I will be teaching a beginners class for young girls this spring and am looking for easy to follow resources for them ….. you are #1 on the list!!!

    Thanks for the reviews! I’m considering a subscription and this was super helpful. πŸ˜€

    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.

    My last project was a beanie for someone at my school. She saw me crocheting and asked me to make her one. It was difficult to find a pattern that I liked and matched the hook I had, so I made my own and added a border using a headband pattern. It turned out great for my first hat.

    I watched YouTube to learn a new stitch, as I often do, and decided to keep going with the pattern. My small tutorial sample (which was too wide for a scarf) became a shawl that alternated colors in a raspberry variegated and a creamy beige color in alternating rows! Wearing it today! It’s warm and wonderful.

    I just finished my first Afghan. I didn’t know how many chains to cast on so I looked at a pattern my sister-in-mailed me 30 years ago. It called for 275 and I thought that was a lot so I settled for 250. I didn’t realize it was a pattern to be stitched top to bottom instead of side to side. LOL a real novice. I ended up with a twin size “blanket”that overhangs about 4” on each side. I added a border of 3 rows of single stitches and a contrasting shell border. I can’t wait to start a new project.

    Awesome! I got my first Yarnbox this month and received Carnivale, which I traded on Ravelry for Morris. I am excited to try the Haute Boheme pattern and shop for some great beads!

    My last finished project was Astragloves fingerless mitts made for me and my 7-year-old daughter.

Let me know what you think
