Winner of Next Counter Ring

Congrats Deborah who left this comment:

Mine are pretty simple to most but I am a beginner and a lefty so I love your videos. I would love to see coffee & mug cozies, headbands, fingerless gloves and those beaded crochet necklaces if that’s something you do. Also I believe they are called motifs (I think) owls, skull, and cats so they can be added to the headbands & cozies. Thank you for the opportunity and I really like that black ring.

She will be picking one of the counter rings (I’m guessing the black on from her comment). Then there will still be two left, so be sure to subscribe to the blog to find out when the next contest will start.

Another Counter Ring Giveaway And 50% Off A Couple Of Patterns

ring_2

I bet you were wondering what happened to the Counter Rings.

I didn’t forget about them or you. I was just waiting for the super generous guys of Critsuccess to hook up their new, knit and crochet-focused website.

The Counter Ring is now live.

I love these rings, and I still use mine whenever I have a project where I need to keep track of rows. It is always in my project bag, and I am contemplating getting a couple extra so I am never without one.

In case you are new to the Counter Ring, check out my video to see it in action.


I was given four rings from The Counter Ring company and  I have three left to giveaway.

How The Giveaway Works

I’m going to be giving away the rings over the course of the next couple months. They will be given away one at a time.

The next winner (see below how to enter) will get their choice of any of the three remaining colors seen pictured. The sizes for each color are:

Rainbow – size 9

Black – size 9

Blue – size 8

Gold – size 8

Each subsequent winner (new posts will be started for each giveaway, so be sure to subscribe to the blog if you haven’t already), will get their choice from the remaining rings.

3 Perfect Gifts For the Crocheter In Your Life

#ad link
There are still 10 days left to shop for Christmas. If your loved one is crocheter, here are the perfect gifts that are always useful no matter how many the crocheter already has.

  1. Crochet Hooks

Splurge

1_candy

Furls Crochet Hooks ~ Retail $49 each

These Furls candy colored crochet hooks will be your crocheter’s new favorite hook. Plus, they are a perfect gift to keep giving. One hook for each special occasion (if the sticker shock of buying them all at once scares you). Whoever said diamonds are a woman’s best friend, also said these hooks are her second best.

Save

Clover Amour Soft Touch Hook Set ~ Retail $45+ for the whole set

Not quite as shiny as the Furls, but these are my go to favorite hooks of all time.

You can never have too many hooks, and these are the best quality for the money. Plus you can get the whole set for the same price as one of the Furls.

2. Yarn Bowl

Splurge

Stitch Happy Handmade Extra Large Wooden Yarn Bowl ~ Retail $49

This yarn bowl could actually be in the “save” section as well depending on how much you want to spend. Etsy alone has over 4,000 currently listed, with it’s most expensive at over $400.

Yarn bowls have made a huge explosion over the past year and it’s a good chance your crocheter might not even have one yet. But, if they do, don’t worry, they will always be able to use more.

Save

Yarn Bowl by Yarn Valet ~ Retail $12.99

This bowl is a great deal and was just mentioned by Good Housekeeping  as a must have for knitters and crocheters.

With is tiny price tag, it’s a great choice for those on a budget.

3. Project Bag

Splurge

tote_lab_large

Slipped Stitches Studio Plus Tote and Tot ~ Retail $135

Your crocheter can always use another project bag, so this is a no brainer.

The project bags from Slipped Stitches have every pop reference imaginable (I’m partial to Labyrinth- pictured here). This is their largest tote, but they have many other sizes (and price points) available.

Save

Art Bin Yarn Drum ~ Retail $21.99

What this lacks in style, it makes up for in utility. This thing is a workhorse, holding up to 8 skeins of yarn. If your crocheter loves making blankets, this is the tote for them.

What’s On Your List?
