Review: Knitter’s Journal

I was never a fan of a hard-copy-yarn-craft-journal. As a Techno Nerd, I always thought Ravelry was the only way to go. But then I was contacted to review this one.

Yep. It’s worth a look. AND I began to think of other benefits… like passing it down to another knitter in the family! Hmmm….  What do YOU think?

Knit Quick Knitting Machine First Impression

Michael’s (a large craft store chain here in the USA) has come out with it’s own circular knitting machine. I bought it and ran it through it’s paces. Here’s my initial impression:

UPDATE: This machine seems to be inconsistent in production quality. Many people report broken gears soon after purchase while others do not. Mine lasted a good while but I eventually wore it out, too.

SilverSpun Yarn: My All-Time Favorite Yarn!

The Feel Good Yarn Company sent me a skein of this to try. Oh. My. GOODNESS!! I’m so excited about it I don’t know where to begin!!

Ummm… I’ll jump in here: Put this yarn on your holiday crafting supply list! You definitely need to make some mittens for someone because YOU CAN USE A TOUCHSCREEN WHILE WEARING THEM! There is so much more to this yarn so save me some typing and watch my review!

(Note: I’m a geeky tech person so the ingenuity behind this product is right up my alley!)

2 Knitter’s Pride Needle Reviews and 1 GIVEAWAY!

Oooo…. Good stuff this week! Check out what the good people at Knitter’s Pride (aka Knit Pro in other countries) have sent my way! Carefully listen for instructions for the Giveaway.

Wool Dryer Balls Convert!

What I once thought was an old wive’s tale turned out to be scientifically true! Dryer balls really do dry your clothes faster AND soften without chemicals. Thanks to Mountain Meadow Wool, I got the opportunity to check this out for myself and learned a lot more along the way. (Ex: Don’t use the cheaper plastic versions.)

Yak Yarn and Allure Wash

Bijou Basin Ranch sent me some AWESOME yarn to try and as much as I hate to part with it but I’m going to share it with you! (75% Yak Down/25% Super Fine Merino “Himalayan Trail” Yarn) In addition, they sent some excellent Allure Fine Fiber and Fabric Wash, too, that’s my new favorite!

REVIEW: Karbonz Interchangeable Knitting Needles

I was so excited to have the chance to try out some Karbonz Interchangeable knitting needles by Knitter’s Pride (or KnitPro if you live outside the U.S.) and I am pleased to say I loved them! They sent the “Midi” set which contains U.S. sizes 7,8,9, and 10 and is perfect for a variety of mid-weight yarn.

So, pick up your yarn, click the video and let me tell you what I discovered!
