June 2021 Mini Yarn Subscription Box

This month I included an American Brand, Caron. I do believe that this is the first time I have chosen this brand for the Mini Box. I actually love using it as it is really soft. Subscribers found 2 balls of Caron Simply Soft in the shade Robin’s Egg. Each of the 170g balls contains […]

April 2021 Mini Yarn Subscription Box

This month subscribers received 3 balls of Hayfield Baby Bonus 4ply. Each of the 100g balls contains approx 466m. As it is a baby yarn it can go into the washing machine and is safe for the tumble dryer. That is a lot of yarn to play with! This month I also included a cute […]

February 2021 Mini Box

This month I included 2 balls of Hayfield Journey in a colourway called ‘Sail Away’. I thought it was perfect at the moment, because the one thing that I, and many others, want to do is sail away on a lovely long holiday. Each ball contains approx 355 metres and it does contain 20% wool […]

Why we love knitting and crochet (and you should too)

I often get asked this question. ‘Why do you knit/crochet?’ It is then often followed by the statement ‘I thought only old people or grandma’s do that!’ I for one am far from old (I’m 35 for the record) and I have been able to knit and crochet since I was a child. I know […]

January 2021 Mini Box

This month I included 2 balls of Sirdar Colourwheel Dazzle in this spectacular Tropical Twist shade. Each ball is 150g and contains approx 520m which is perfect for a scarf or use both for a blanket perhaps? It can be machine washed at 40°. This box also included some blocking pins. I always find these […]

2020 vs 2021

New Year…New Goals This time last year I decided, for the first time ever, not to set resolutions. I never kept to them. I think it was the term resolution. It just seems so finale. It doesn’t seem to give me the option of working towards it. It is an all or nothing concept to […]

September 2020 Mini Box

This month I have included the gorgeous Sirdar Snuggly 4ply in blue. Each ball is 50g and contains approx 226m. In terms of washing instructions it can be washed on a 40° cycle and it can be popped into the tumble drier on a low heat. The Sirdar Snuggly 4ply retails at £2.99 per ball […]

Yarn Review – King Cole Giza 4ply

Back in June 2020, the yarn supplied in the knitting and crochet subscription boxes was the King Cole Giza 4ply. A beautiful mercerized cotton yarn in a vibrant red shade. The yarn itself is a 50g ball and contains approx 175 yards (158 metres). It is machine washable at 40 degrees and comes in a […]

Customer Takeover – August 2020 Baby Crochet Box

I have been a happy subscriber of the “Hook it Yourself” boxes since March 2019.  I initially started the boxes as even though I was an experienced crocheter, I really lacked confidence with sewing up any of my projects.  Each of the boxes comes with a pattern for a garment to make for a baby […]
