Lion Brand Landscapes – Yarn Review

Have you ever bought yarn strictly based on the colourway? I think many of us have. I was browsing online (you’ll understand the rabbit hole of yarn shopping) and found Lion Brand Landscapes. It looked very beautiful and I immediately added some to my cart without knowing much about it. Sometimes the challenge of figuring out a plan after I bought the yarn can be kind of fun. I also thought it would be a great opportunity to add another yarn review to the blog so I could share my experience with others.

Stroll Tonal Mini Pack – Yarn Review

Stroll Tonal Mini Packs from WeCrochet was an item that caught my attention and was quickly added to my cart.

Red Heart Super Saver O’Go – Yarn Review

Red Heart Super Saver is a classic yarn that is popular amongst knitters and crocheters alike. With beautiful colours, competitive prices and being available in many major craft retailers, it’s a staple for many fibre artists. Recently, a new format was released called Red Heart Super Saver O’Go. It boasts ease of use without tangles or the hassles that traditional skeins can sometimes have. But does it actually work and is it practical?

I purchased two Super Saver O’Go’s in the “Christmas” colourway to find out and share with you what I learned. You can read about my experience and review below. Please note that I am not being paid for this review nor was I asked to write it. I simply enjoy trying new yarn!

My Experience With A DIY Yarn Dye Kit

Earlier this summer, I was browsing through some beautiful hand dyed yarn online. They were all so unique and filled with amazing colour combinations that were so creatively inspiring. While scrolling through Etsy, I discovered yarn dye kits. Hand dyed yarn seemed like something that was way out of my skill level. I didn’t know anything about the process and I certainly lacked appropriate studio space to create my own. But guess what? It WAS something I could do and I’m so glad I tried it. Let me share some of the experience with you:
