February 2019 Box

Have you received your February Hook It Yourself Box yet? I hope you love it as much as I do.

Your February box contains 3 balls of King Cole Cherished Yarn in a vibrant red to celebrate the month of love. You will also find a gorgeous pattern from King Cole which will allow you to create either the cardigan or waistcoat from 0-3 months all the way upto 12-24 months.

I have chosen King Cole Cherished as it is a gorgeous anti pilling yarn that is supersoft and has a gorgeous sheen to it, making it feel and look luxurious. The yarn itself is DK and is a whopping 240 metres. It is also the perfect yarn for little ones as you can both wash and tumble dry it too.

You will also find 10 buttons which match perfectly, including 2 wooden handmade with love buttons which you could use to add a little something extra onto your creation. You can also stitch in the Crocheted With Love label too!

Also included in your box is an incredibly useful pair of snippers. I’m always losing my snippers and they are much easier to use than a larger pair of scissors. Perfect for those pesky ends!

I have also included a card sourced from the ever delightful and creative Lana Bou Shop. You can find her on Facebook by searching @lanaboushop. You can also see all of her other wonderful creations at www.etsy.com/uk/shop/lanaboushop

I have tried to make sure that you can use everything in the box, including the ribbon and tissue paper. Use them to wrap your creations if you wish to gift them. And finally I’ve included a little pack of Love Hearts, just because!

Happy Crocheting!

Welcome

Welcome to Hook It Yourself. I can’t quite believe that after years of dreaming and months of planning that my monthly subscription service is up and running. I thought I would take a little time to introduce myself and explain a bit more about Hook It Yourself.

I’m Sarah, a 30 something crochetholic, yarn hoarder and chronic WIP accumulator! I’m also a mummy to 2 beautiful little children, my eldest, Theo who lives in heaven and my pint-sized mini-me, Olivia, a complete whirlwind of a toddler. My life here in little old Wigan is pretty much perfect. The crochet subscription idea came about when I was on maternity leave after having Theo. I was in a bad place after he passed away and crochet became my escape, my therapy, but I felt unable to go out and purchase what I needed. I wasn’t ready to face the world. It was my mum who brought me patterns and yarns to work with and she was able to choose some beautiful things for me. Yarns in colours that I would never normally use, patterns that could be used for either gender, buttons and embellishments that completed the item perfectly. It became an absolute pleasure to open the carrier bag she brought.

I slowly got better and the dream began to take shape. A box delivered every month containing everything a keen crocheter needs to create an item. Everything would be a mystery, a complete surprise!

Fast forward 3 years and here we are! Hook It Yourself has launched and my dream becomes a reality. I honestly cannot wait till the first boxes are shipped.
