Recently, I came across these fingering gradient yarn. I love the way they change the color gradually. It gives your project a very different and unique look. These self striping yarn are just gorgeous when knitted in shawl or even garments. I met a lovely store owner on etsy Brenda of Bre-Aly Threads. She provides these delicious looking yarn at a very affordable prices. The cotton crochet yarn is amazing to work wit as you can see I have posted pictures of the shawl I tested recently for Deanne Ramsey of Addydae Design you should check her out too..Ok getting back to yarn Brenda also provides you option of creating your own custom colorways, You get to pick and choose colors for 3 or 4ply yarn...isn't that awesome.

I just loved working with her 4 ply cotton thread and as I contacted Brenda she also agreed to give a coupon to our readers to save some $$. She has offered a coupon you can use to save 15% on your order on her etsy store.. so go ahead and shop your favorite striping yarn and save some cash.

Isn't the color transition awesome...i just loved working with the 4ply yarn, I am so happy with my finished shawl/scarf...don't you love it. I am also working on another project using one of her beautiful  cotton striping yarn...will share the pics soon.

Furls Crochet hook review and giveaway.


As a crocheter like others I have a favorite hook too and so when everyone asked me if I ever tried furls crochet I was interested in giving it a try too. So, I recently did another product review for furls crochet...yes the most beautiful hand carved wooden crochet hook I have ever seen. So, when furls crochet sent me the hook I was very excited to try it in my upcoming project to see how it works and the result.

 Each of this heirloom wooden crochet hook can bee made to order in 7 different wood choices and can be chosen to be made in hook size range from 3.25mm to 6.00mm. I choose the blood wood color....it is lovely. The package came beautifully packed in wrapping paper in a black box along with a yarn...when I opened the box and looked at hook it was a piece of art.....just beautiful.


Let me be honest it wasn't easy getting used to the new hook however after few practices it became easier to handle it to get even stitches every time. You can see in the picture below at first the stitches are loose however as I worked with it...I loved every stitch. It is so easy to handle and light. I am very much in love with this hook and will surely buy one more size that I use frequently.



As they promise that their hooks are guaranteed to even your stitches, relax your hands, and make the art of crochet easier, faster, and more enjoyable for you. If their hooks do not live up to the promise, send your hook back for a 100% money-back refund. The only reason they can offer a guarantee like this is because they are confident that you'll discover so much more fun in crochet with their hooks, just like other Furls' clients.

So how about a giveaway....yaaaaayyyy! You can win a bloodwood color crohet hook worth $79.99 however now on sale for $74.99 if you wnt to goa head and get one from furls crochet.
 Read and enter below for the giveaway.
The giveaway begins on Monday, March 16 at 12:00am(CST) and ends on Sunday, March 22 at 11:59pm(CST).

Furls Yarn Bowl Review & Giveaway!!


Hey Everyone,

First, I would like to apologize this giveaway was scheduled to start last Wednesday however as I was traveling to visit my family and trying to schedule this giveaway it won't let me add the rafflecopter link to enter the giveaway from airport and then I just got busy with family :)

OK, so let's talk about our today's giveaway..in fact I was given the opportunity to review this beautiful women bowl and also one winner can get their hands on it how...keep reading.

Every once in a while I invest my money in some beautiful yarn that I use to make gifts or for donation to special charity auction...I really save money to invest in these yarns and hence I think they need a little extra special treatment..having said that doesn't mean I don't love yarns that I buy on sale for $2-3..I do...however the extra money makes these yarn a little more special.

I always wanted to keep them lint, dust free when I work and that is never possible as they roll on the floor. I tried buying the container from which you can pull the yarn but that doesn't seem to work for me either...so when I saw these Furls yarn bowl I had to give it w try.

Do I love the bowl...oh yes as you can see in the picture the yarn nestled in the bowl so well and was awesome to work tension free of dust, lint etc...and this isn't I am saying just because I got it for review if it wouldn't  have worked I would have honestly said so....oh but honestly these are just awesome.

Now a little info about the bowl: These yarn bowls are handmade of beautiful acacia wood. Every Furls Yarn Bowl is backed by a 100% refund policy and a lifetime warranty: if at any point you are not satisfied with your yarn bowl, we will replace your yarn bowl free of charge or refund you 100% of your original purchase.

Their price is $35.99 however they are on sale for $29.99 at the moment, that is if you want to buy one right away for yourself or someone who loves to crochet and loves their yarn more then anything else. You can buy them here .


Now let's begin the giveaway. Please read every entry carefully so they can count as legit entry. I hate to disqualify a winner on a entry which are not even showing up under their name. Let's be fair and honest. Giveaway open worldwide except where it cannot be mailed. a Rafflecopter giveaway
