Where To Get Those Crazy Big Knitting Needles Or Crochet Hooks??

13 12 2015 DIY

Well - this is a question I get asked a lot... 

Sometimes my customers are a litlle dissapointed that I do not sell big needles in my DaWanda shop along with the wool.

I did think about offering them but it would add just another piece to my business and to the already thousand things that come with it and that I need to take care of.

It's amazing what it takes to run a little business smooth and successful - if you are self employed you can relate... 

And since there are already great shops offering a wide variety of big knitting needles and crochet hooks I rather link to those.

My favorites are Knit Affair who offers beautiful handmade needles handmade in Berlin from sustainable wood - on the second picture you can see their straight 20mm knitting needles - and Handgefertigt-Berlin, who offers needles and hooks up to size 30mm.

That cool little bag on the last picture is from Dawanda Shop moon.moon and the feather print is from the danish Etsy Shop The Clay Play.

DIY: Scarf And Beanie Knit Kit

20 11 2015

I currently offer two knit kits which are great for beginners but also fun if you are already a bit more advanced in knitting.

The yarn is super cool and oh so cozy! Both make great gifts - as a kit or ready made...

The beanie kit contains 1 skein à 150gr/5,3oz Loopy Mango Merino No.5 yarn (100% Merino, 74yards/68m) from New York, a size 15/10mm birchwood circular knitting needle, instructions and a cute drawstring bag with Loopy Mango print.

The finished beanie measures approximately 10"/25cm x 12"/30cm.

You will need about 1-2 hours to finish this project. The beanie is also available ready made.

The scarf kit contains 3 skeins à 150gr/5,3oz Loopy Mango Merino No.5 yarn (100% Merino, 74yards/68m) from New York, a size 19/15mm birchwood circular knitting needle, instructions and a cute drawstring bag with Loopy Mango print.

The finished scarf measures approximately 9"/23cm in width and 80"/203cm in length.

You can also easily change the pattern a bit and make the scarf wider and shorter if you like.

To finish the knitted scarf you will need about 3-5 hours. It is also available ready made.

Immediately available colors are: Iceberg grey, Polar Bear off white, Mrs. Orange and Café Con Leche. With longer shipping time also Yellow, Green, Red and Pink.

Both knit kits are available here in my DaWanda shop.
