WAK Crochet Kit Review and Giveaway

Hello there my friends! I have a fun company to introduce to you, along with a product review and a giveaway!

We Are Knitters is an international online knitting and fashion brand based out of Madrid, Spain with a strong online and offline presence throughout Europe. We Are Knitters’ product offerings includes a wide range of DIY knitting and crochet kits, which contain everything you need to knit or crochet your own unique garment or other item, including the yarn balls, wooden needles, pattern, sewing needle, and a We Are Knitters tag to sew into the finished product.

One thing I love about the site is the customer photos. As I was looking through the kits, it was so helpful to see the pictures of finished items for each kit made by actual customers. It’s one thing to sell a kit, it’s another to sell a kit that actually works! The customer pictures show that the kits work, and that is something I find rather useful to know, don’t you? 😉

When I was asked to review a crochet kit, I took a look through the available kits. I always have a pile of hooks, needles, notes, yarn balls, and various what~nots sitting on the couch next to me. The Chess Basket kit seemed to be the solution to that problem. I looked at the available colors and found an olive green that would look lovely on my couch!


The kit arrived very quickly for being shipped from abroad! It was so fun to

Quick & Easy Crochet Cowls

Tamara Kelly ~ the awesome designer behind Moogly ~ is now also a Craftsy instructor! Her first Craftsy class is Quick & Easy Crochet Cowls, sponsored by Lion Brand.


I enrolled for the class right away, and watched it last weekend. The class includes instruction and patterns for the 3 awesome cowls seen pictured throughout this post. The first is Amazing 45 Minute Cowl made with just one skein of Lion Brand Amazing yarn. This cowl is super quick and easy, and I love that Tamara takes the time to give lots of useful tips and tricks, both the kind that a new crocheter will love to learn, and the kind that can make a seasoned crocheter say “why didn’t I know that already!?”
