I’ve always been a fan of Clover’s bamboo knitting needles. In fact that was my first pair! Now many knitting and crocheting needles later, Cloveris still my first choice and have made some of my other favorite things! They make some of the most ingenious products that makes craft projects look professional, even for a beginner.
Have you ever tried to make a yo-yo by hand? I have, and refuse to ever do it that way again! Watch this video on the Clover Yo-Yo makers and you’ll see why. The Clover Yo-Yo Makers come in small, medium, large and x-large in numerous shapes – butterfly, heart, flower, oval and more.
PS. I also refuse to make pom-poms by hand now too! Thank you Clover!
I recently got a Flower Frill template too. It’s a plastic template where you flip & fold fabric or paper to make a flower! This is what Clover made with the Flower Frill template, just imagine the possibilities!

Now Tunisian crochet isn’t anything new. Well new to me. They go back a gazillion years. Well, maybe not that far, but it is an old technique. But now there’s something new on the market from Clover. It’s the Double-Ended Tunisian Crochet Hook. With a hook at both ends, it allows you to crochet in the round so you can make beautifil projects ranging from a cute little coffee cup cozy (you know, like those cardboard sleeves coffee places use) to hats to a cell phone holder to purses to …. well, you get the idea.
It’s raining, it’s pouring and this craft lady needed something to keep from snoring. They say it is officially Spring… But here in Portland we are in our longest season – RAIN. And it has been a wet one this year. Thankfully the rain hasn’t stopped the flowers and trees from starting to bloom, and I wanted to steal (or copy) some of that beauty for my front door. I hope you enjoy this wreath.
Decorate for Fall and Halloween with these fun and addictive candy corn pom poms! You won’t have to worry about a sugar rush with these candy corns, but they’re just as sweet as the real thing. You won’t want to stop making these easy decorations, so string them up to make a garland, fill a few bowls with them, or attach them to a wreath frame for a fun door decoration!
Want to knit like a Viking? Recently I had the pleasure of researching nalebinding for a school project. Nalebinding, also called Nalbinding or Viking knitting, is a fiber technique that predates both knitting and crochet. Egyptian socks from the 4th century were made using nalebinding. The Vikings also used nalebinding to create textiles and now you can too.
