I’ve had some questions come in about the bundle, so I wanted to take a second to answer them for you!

Question: I already bought the bundle. Do I get the bonuses too?

Answer: You bet! We wanted to sweeten the deal even more. Sometimes, we decide to release an extra special bonus, but you never know when. That’s why it’s important to read the daily emails so you don’t miss any. So far, the following bonuses have been added: 5 Special Bonus Patterns and the CrochetU Pillow Class for free. They are waiting for you in the download area of the bundle.

Question: What Do I Get When I Buy The Bundle?

Answer: After you buy the bundle, you’ll get directed to a download page where you will be able to download all 40+ patterns. They are delivered as PDFs. You can print these PDFs off yourself or you can view them on your computer, phone or iPad.

Question: Is There A Guarantee?

Answer: Absolutely, all Ideal Me products come with a full 30-day guarantee. That means that if you decide it’s not for you, you can simply reach out and let us know and we’ll issue a full refund.

Question: Are These Patterns Beginner Friendly?

Answer: Many of the projects in the bundles are designed for beginners. Though there are an assortment of levels among our patterns, many of them are perfect for beginners, and then you can work your way up to the more intermediate designs.

Question: I’m not sure yet, will I be able to get the Bundle at a later date?

Answer: One of the reasons we’re able to offer the bundle for such an amazing discount is because it’s only available for a few days. The bundle sale ends on April 6th and after that, the bundle will never be available again, so make sure to take advantage of the bundle now!

Alright, that about covers it. If I missed any questions, just hit reply and let me know and I’m more than happy to answer!

My 6 Favorite Cat Items On Knit Picks Right Now

I don’t know if you guys have checked out Knit Picks lately, but they are stocking up on not only beautiful yarn, but also super cute home decor and yarn accessories. There are so many that I’m in love with that I have to group them by catagory.

So, first up are my top 6 cat related awesomeness finds from Knit Picks. (ad links below)

  1. How adorable is this Professor Meow Sweater? He looks so surprised and I love the yarn they used. It gives real dimension to the cat rather than using a flat black.cat3
  2. These Cat Snips Scissors are so cute, I want a pair for each of my project bags.


3. The C’Mon, Cat Happy Beanie gives a fun nod to all those black cats out there. I’m sure you won’t give anyone bad luck if you cross their path.


4. The Calvin Cat Critter Mug gives me a woodland vibe that I’m digging.


5. The Meow-ccasin Slippers are adorable and they look super comfy.

Manos Del Uruguay Serena Yarn Review

manos del uruguay serena yarn
The color is so pretty!

Check out this beautiful yarn that I received from Fairmount Fibers, the Manos Del Uruguay Serena yarn.

First off, the colorways in this yarn are amazing! They have literally over 40 different colors to choose from. The yarn is kettle dyed so it has that nice heathered look that makes your projects looks so special.

How pretty is that?

The yarn itself, is a unique blend of 60% baby alpaca and 40% pima cotton. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that combination before it is so interesting. It is great for scarves and shawls because it will drape beautifully. And it is so squishy soft! See my video below for some swatches I worked up in the yarn and how I liked working with it.

Here’s some more info on the yarn:

Yardage: Approx. 170 yds / 155 m per 1.75 oz / 50 g
Weight: Sport to DK
Gauge: Serena’s gauge is very versatile, from 4 1/2 stitches per inch (SPI) all the way up to 7 SPI
Needle Size: US 4 – 6 / 3.5 – 4 mm
Care Instructions: Hand wash in cool water. Dry flat.

Another awesome thing about this yarn is that the name of the company Manos Del Uruguay translates to Hands of Uruguay which is exactly who makes it.  Manos yarns are made by hand by skilled artisans in cooperatives located throughout Uruguay. Every skein purchased helps a woman in Uruguay support her family, and each skein is signed by the artisan so that you know who made your yarn and which village it came from.

An artist at work.

2018 is the 50th anniversary of Manos yarns! Fairmount Fibers we will be celebrating with some giveaways and special colorways so you might want to go follow them on their social media so you get notifications when the giveaways are happening.

You can find them on FacebookTwitterInstagramPinterest and Ravelry.

Fairmount Fibers is the North American Distributor of Manos del Uruguay yarns who provided this product for review. They have a beautiful website with tons of free patterns. Like this one that was made in Serena yarn.
