I’m taking a one day break from our Knit For Crocheters series to bring you some yarn awesomeness!!!
I received my Knitcrate March 2018 shipment (free for my honest review), and I can honestly say, this is my favorite yarn I’ve ever received from Knitcrate!! I don’t want to give too much away, you’ll have to watch the video below to see how awesome it is. It is perfect for knit or crochet and looks great in all kinds of stitches. Plus it’s sparkly!!! Watch the video to see it now.
The yarn is still available if you subscribe now.

I love Craftsy kits and they’ve just improved them. They made their kits even better! Each project kit now includes: Your printed pattern, access to the digital pattern and a project bag with all of your kit materials inside (hello organization!).
They really want you to try these new kits out by giving you up to two kits at 50% off just to try it. Just use coupon code KITSAVINGS at checkout.
Hurry up though because the deal only lasts until tomorrow!!!
Here is their fine print:
Get 50% off the full retail price of any quilt, knit or crochet kit from Craftsy. Sorry, cake kits are not included in this promotion. Limit two kits one redemption per customer. Cannot be combined with any other coupons. Expires October 26, 2017 at 11:59PM Mountain Time.
And this move, I’m clearing out the clutter. So my large collection of crochet (and some knit and plushie) magazine back issues are going.
I’ve got them listed on Ebay right now. All auction style and starting at .99 for each item. I’m shipping them out via media mail, so anyone who gets multiple listings will get combined shipping. There are over 100 magazines and pattern booklets to choose from so be sure to check them out now because the auctions end on Sunday. If you have any questions about any of the listings you can leave them below or contact me through Ebay.
I’ll let you know more about the move in coming posts (including which state I will end up in next).
The good folks over at Meteoor Books sent me a free copy of their newest Zoomigurumi book, Zoomigurumi 6. I’ve reviewed a past copy and was very excited to see what new animals were getting the Zoomigurumi treatment.
Just like the past version I received, the book is a collection of 15 patterns by a variety of designers (15 ones in this book, 12 in the previous). Though they are all by different people, you get the feel of a very cohesive vision throughout the book. I give lots of credit to the publishers for their great effort at this cohesion (I feel like Tim Gunn during Fashion Week).
Each little critter is presented with step-by-step instructions with plenty of picture tutorials for difficult portions.
All the patterns use basic amigurumi stitches, so lots of single crochet. None of the patterns seem too difficult so that even a novice at amigurumi could make these. They are all well thought out and just plain cute!
I love that each little guy gets his own cartoon version of itself in the material section.
There are so many cute critters I can’t pick just one favorite.
Do you have any of the Zoomigurumi books? Which one is your favorite? Let us know below and go check out Zoomigurumi 6 on sale now!
